Hi, How can I make Store page items donation-based? I thought I could use the "donation" button, but I'm unable to embed it in. https://plums-aqua-hnh3.squarespace.com/


Can you share some screenshots of what you want to achieve?

Hi, yes.

I'm designing & creating a website for a non-profit. The items they're selling are for fundraisers, so they're donation-based. For example, in the screenshot the suggested donation of this book is $25. However, someone can pay more or less for it. How do I allow a user to pick from different donation prices? Right now I'm only able to let them pick one amount ($25).

Squarespace doesn't allow variable amounts, so you'll need to add products with fixed amounts.

If this is a digital product as your screenshot of a PDF suggests, and you want to show several options on a page (eg $10, $25, $50) then you will need to add the digital product several times, with each one priced to meet your needs. You can then use Product Blocks to show an 'Add to Cart' button for each product.

If this were a physical product (not a PDF for download) you could add one product with individually priced variants.
