Small paypal option

Posted on 2011-10-18

I'm using joomla to build a website for a club of around 100 members. Each club member pays either $30, $50 or $75 once a year as a membership fee. I would like to add a paypal button that when clicked on, would give the club members the option to select one of the 3 amounts, and pay that.

Can anyone recommend something to do this? Would I require a paypal merchant account to receive these payments?
Lastly, can people pay me if they don't have a paypal account, but want to use their credit cards to pay into my paypal account.

Phew, that's a lot of questions!
Thanks in advance for any assistance :)

The buttons are available thru your own Paypal account.  To keep it simple, you should probably just use three separate buttons for the different amounts.  As for paying by credit card without an account, it seems the Paypal rules are different for different setups so you just need to check.

Thanks Dave, I ended up using a very handy module OSDonate, which can be found here.
