Custom Payment

Go to solution Solved by paul2009,

Hello,

I'm working on a payment process that requires a large variation of possible prices, so many that it makes creating different products and variants too difficult to manage. Each customer receives a contract with a calculated price prior to coming to the page to make a payment. What we are looking for is the ability to allow the customer to enter the price directly as stated in the contract - similar to a donation block - then pass that information to the paypal integration for payment. We considered using the donation bock, but that has tax implication and forces, or so it seems, donation verbiage into the process which can cause confusion. 

Any help is greatly appreciated. 

Thank you!

To be clear, none of them will "integrate" with Squarespace but they can be linked from the Squarespace site and often embedded on it. One example is JotForm.

Squarespace isn’t a suitable platform for this requirement. You’ll need to embed a completely different payment method to be able to do this, whereas some other platforms allow variable payments.

Interestingly enough, I spent about an hour today fiddling around with my site attempting to do exactly what you said. My business offers services not products to purchase. Therefore, I send invoices to my clients that could be any random amount depending on the work being done. I wanted a simple way for clients to go to my website to pay their invoices. I also tried turning the “donation” block into a “payment” block, but as you mentioned it wouldn't work without causing other issues and confusion. I ended up doing a live-chat with Squarespace asking if there was anything I could do to set up a simple “make a payment” process and was advised they don’t have a way to do that. I find it odd this isn’t possible to do as it seems something simple that many businesses would use and that would require very little for Squarespace to implement. They could tweek the “donation” wording around and a few other things and there you go!

Does anyone know of a plugin or other workaround that will allow customers to enter their own payment amount? 

@TSTrip It isn't possible for customers to enter their own amount into the Squarespace payment processing with Stripe or PayPal, with or without code/plugins/extensions. For that you'll need to accept payments using a third party payment or form product.

Has anyone tried allowing a customer to input their own custom amount by charging multiple quantity at $100 and multiple quantity at $1.  This way if they wanted to pay $1535, then they would my 15 quantity of $100 service and 35 quantity of the $1 service.  Bad way to work around but I am thinking about trying it as a way around it.

I thought of that, too, but then you'd get charged multiple fees per each transaction. The fact they do not support this/allow it is abysmal.

I've been doing something for a couple of years now that may help you guys, but yes, it doesn't seem as professional as being able to EITHER: Create a manual order for a client to use the link and go ahead and pay the order, or be able to order with a custom pricing that they type (that we've agreed to).
We're really just asking for invoicing and how fucking difficult is that? lol.

Anyway, I added a product to my store that is $1. I then allow the quantity field to be edited and have them change THAT to the $ value we agreed upon. I've never seen additional fees doing this as it's a digital product.
I then in CSS convert the text "quantity" to what ever text you want. I went with "Agreed upon price". It's the only way i've been able to get around it.

Squarespace markets themselves for creatives and service sellers but come on... No manual order creation for easy buyer payments, or just straight up easy invoicing. Come on, this is 2021, we've been asking for it for years. It's not a hard thing to do when most of the bones are already in SS's system.
