How to add Alertpay Donate Button

Guest Post By Tanmay Das

Many times I have read about a alertpay donate button. you know those button where the  users can donate small amount 2 the site. But finding 1 is really tough. Paypal™ has a donate button, but you can donate only if you have a Paypal™ account. But everyone doesn't has a Paypal™ account.
So the other option is 2 allow people to use their credit-cards to donate. But to enable this feature you have to pay an excess of 20-25%. Now that is a real rip off.
Another option is Alertpay™, they allow credit-card transaction 4 free after a simple site verification. But the problem is they don't have a ready made donate button. So the option is to use a buy button as a donate button.
But now the problem is that the amount 4 a buy button is fixed (as you don't want the user to decide the amount for a purchase), but in case of a donation the user wishes to select the amount to donate.
Now I searched the net 4 sometime & finally found a code which allows the user to change the amount to donate as per their wish. But it had some problem, just a glitch as you can add any text in the text box. Now that  is silly as no one would enter alphabet in that text box but Y take the risk so I found a script & modified the code so that only positive integers can B entered in the text box.
So here is the code:

<!-- Code written by someone else but the whole thing is made by Tanmay Das -->
<script language="JavaScript">
function checkIt(evt) {
    evt = (evt) ? evt : window.event
    var charCode = (evt.which) ? evt.which : evt.keyCode
    if (charCode > 31 && (charCode < 48 || charCode > 57)) {
        status = "This field accepts numbers only."
        return false
    status = ""
    return true
Enter Donation Amount:
