Can wave checkout be set in a way that client can choose how much they are paying or I can set variable amounts I will accept for payment?

    Hi, @wkelley.

    It can't, for the time being. You have to set up products with set prices ahead of time. I'd love to head a bit more about your needs, however. Checkout is still in its infancy, and learning more about what Wavers would like to use it for is extremely helpful to us.

    Can you tell me more about how you'd use the ability to let your clients decide on the amount to pay? What kind of a business do you operate? Would this feature be used for special cases, or would this be used to, say, accept donations for a non-profit?

    I am asking my photography clients to make their initial payment of at least half of their session fee to book their session. However, I would accept more if they want to pay more. That's why I thought it would be nice to set a lowest acceptable payment, but any variable above that is ok too. Does that make sense?

    Thank you for providing more context, @wkelley. I'm happy to pass your comment along.

    Your clients can define the amount they pay for invoices, however. If you're set up to accept online payments for your invoices you could simply add information about this deposit in the Notes section. It might not be exactly what you're looking for, but I thought it might help for now. Thanks again for your feedback!

    Hey Alexia, I am from India. I want to use Checkout, but I cannot see that in my account. Am I missing something?
    Also I would like to know how do I transfer payment from wave to my bank account in my country? I don't see that option either.

    Hi @jessiedsouza i'm afraid that Checkouts and Payments by Wave is currently only available in the US and Canada for the time being. I'm sorry that I don't have better news on that front.

    We would love a feature that allowed customers to enter the amount that they wish to pay in order to accept donations. Currently we have a set amount as a membership fee and they could choose to add an unspecified amount as a donation. I'm not sure what the best way is to set this up?

    Hey @ChromaticClubBuffalo! Unfortunately, the checkout feature might not be your best option for this. If you send your customers an invoice, they'll have the ability to type in whatever amount they'd like to pay it with, so you might want to go that route if you'd like them to be able to pay that membership fee in addition to a donation of their choice!
