    I couldn't help but notice Cyberpedz on your website you offer paypal as a payment method.
    Doesn't this cost you quite a lot to receive pay pal payments ?

    Well it generally does cost but what I do is when quoting all jobs a add £1 to cover PayPal charges. I don't have many pay with it at the mo though. What you have to think about though is that it is less hassle than driving around collecting and spending money and time on file etc.

    Yeah good point
     
  4. How have you mannaged to use paypal so that the customers can put it whatever amount they choose into a box then click pay, i have paypal on my website as a payment option but i have to give lots of different options starting at £4 up to £35, how can i have just one box where the customer enters the amount they have to pay.

    No probs, might be a day or two as pretty busy and prob won't get chance to hope on computer. Generally browse on my phone most of the time. Unless updating site and code etc.

    Ok here we go this is the code needed.

    REMEMBER: to change the email address and the thanks page address.
    You will need to create your own page to redirect to after payment, as you can see in the code mine is http://www.gpwindows.co.uk/thanks-for-your-payment/

    Code:
     
     
    
    
     
     
     
     
     
    Name:
    
    
    
    Address:
    
    
    
    Amount to pay (£):
    [i](e.g 10.00 please do not include the £ sign)[/i]
