Donation Downloads

Donation Downloads

The PayLoadz System allows you to offer your items to customers for any price the customer wishes to pay or donate. This is generally thought of as a donation based download. In this process, customers enter their own price for an item during checkout.

The instructions for setting up donation buttons for PayPal are as follows:

  1. Create a new product in the PayLoadz system. Set the price of the item to at least $0.01. The system will not let you set a price of $0.00 at this time.
  2. Go to the Button Code Generator found here: https://www.payloadz.com/sell/product_codegen.asp
  3. Select and generate one of the PayPal Code options, Single Item Purchase is easiest, and press the "generate Product Code" button. Scroll down to the list of products and each product will have it's own corresponding code.
  4. Take the block of code as shown in example as below:   
    <form action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post">
      <input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_xclick">
      <input type="hidden" name="business" value="sales@superfreaker.com">
      <input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="Widget">
      <input type="hidden" name="item_number" value="PAYLOADZ-EXPRESS-26">
      <input type="hidden" name="amount" value="0.01">
      <input type="hidden" name="image_url" value="1234">
      <input type="hidden" name="no_shipping" value="1">
      <input type="hidden" name="return" value="http://payloadz.com/d1/default.asp">
      <input type="hidden" name="cancel_return" value="1234">
      <input type="hidden" name="no_note" value="1">
      <input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="USD">
      <input type="image" src="https://www.paypal.com/images/x-click-but23.gif
      border="0" name="submit" alt="Make payments with PayPal - Download with PayLoadz">
      <input type="hidden" name="notify_url" value="http://payloadz.com/pay/index.asp">
      <input type="hidden" name="shipping" value="0">
      <input type="hidden" name="handling" value="0">
      <input type="hidden" name="rm" value="2">
      <input type="hidden" name="mrb" value="R-5L192964UH642590D">
      <input type="hidden" name="bn" value="PayLoadz">
      <input type="hidden" name="pal" value="QNV3YGA7EVCDE">
      <input type="hidden" name="cbt" value="Continue to Download">
  5. Find the line that contains the "amount hidden variable, highlighted in the above code section. Remove the value entered, so your amount looks like: 
    <input type="hidden" name="amount" value="">
  6. Copy and paste the code into your web page's HTML source code and upload it to your web server. Test the button to ensure the desired result.
