Blank Payment Amounts?


Hey guys,

Is there a way for a customer to send a blank payment amount to our merchant Authorize.net through Ecwid? We need a form where a customer can enter any amount for a deposit or balance payment for our services instead of a fixed price for a store item.

I could use a website payment gateway service separately for this, but since we have an Ecwid account we want the transaction to stay on Ecwid so the customer can track it in their account history. Have any third party apps written any scripts to post a random price to the shopping bag before?

Thanks!

Hi!

For now it is not possible for customer to define his own price for product at checkout, unfortunately. This feature is already planned, please, vote for this idea in order to be notified when it is released: http://ideas.ecwid.com/forums/22031-...-entered-price

As a temporary workaround I can suggest the following solutions:

1) If quantity of ordered items doesn’t matter (e.g. if you sell downloadable products), your customer can control price via “quantity” field:
you can submit price as, e.g., $1 and so if customer wants to pay $10, he just needs to order 10 items.
If you sell physical products and you want that customer could purchase several items of the same product, you can additionally add product option “quantity” with text field type so that customer could enter the quantity he wants to buy. More about product options: http://kb.ecwid.com/w/page/15853269/...our%20products

2) One more variant is to setup offline payment methods. In case of using such methods, customer doesn’t pay anything at checkout. Instead he leaves his contact information (which you can see in order details in Sales section of your Ecwid control panel) so that you can call him and agree on payment. Please, note, as you agree on the price after customer places order, later you will not be able to change the order information and so the prices in the order details and the invoice, that customer will pay for you, will not match.

Hope this will help you. If there are further questions on the matter, feel free to ask.
