Yes You Can

Contribute, that is. I’ve worked all day trying to figure out how to set up a secure campaign donations page with Paypal. It’s not as easy as I thought it would be. You can check it out here.

By the way, if you are a candidate for office, email me and I’ll give you the code to create the same type of page for your campaign.

[UPDATE]: Just to be clear and to respond to an email asking this, yes, I don’t care whether you are a Democrat, Republican, Green, Libertarian, etc., shoot me an email and I’m happy to help you with the coding.

  • There you go Erick, I hope that helps. Anyway, I would like your code for the PayPal donation thingy. I am going to be helping someone in a race next year, and it would be nice to not have to re-invent the wheel.

  • Erick,

    Thanks for the code. Also, the receipt I got from Paypal when viewed on my PDA looked like it had the donation amount as 100 times what I contributed. For whatever reason the decimal point didn’t display. When I got home and checked my account and looked at the email on my computer it was displaying correctly. Anyway, if my email confused you, that was why I forwarded you the receipt. (I assume it displayed normally in the forward).
