When I click on the "Trackchair Donations - Bitpay" button, and attempt to pay in bitcoin, the invoice that gets generated in my BitPay wallet is automatically set up for $10 worth of bitcoin to send, and I can't change the amount. Can we either get that to be adjustable, or send me an invoice to my email with an amount I can set up, or just give me the bitcoin (or ETH) address to send to?

BitPay, in trying to simplify the process so people make no mistakes and don't get scammed, have limited a lot of flexibility as well.

That can be changed there by clicking on the $10. I just did a $200 donation and it worked fine. I also just checked before posting this reply and could change the donated amount to anything I wanted.

With a chair costing $12-16k, we're about 1/4 to a 1/3 of the way there in 2 months. :clap: :clap:

I am a Traveling Salesman and attend allot of Hunting Shows and have seen many of these Track Chairs at the shows I work at. Mainly hunting shows. I may have a pretty decent connection when we are ready to.pull the trigger on buying one when the time comes. I will keep my eyes open at the Shows I attend and I personally know I can probably save us a few thousand dollars (Show Price) when the time comes. I will start looking into it and hand over any contact info I have from the dealers that make these that I meet almost on a Bi-Weekly basis. If this is something that interests any of you reading this, send me a PM and I'll get on it right away.

I don't know what model # or design we are looking to get but thsee particular are made in USA and fully loaded show price is around $11,000 and that's with all the bells and whistles. I can probably get him down to 10k. Once again, message me if this is something you'd like to persue.

We're interested in the best deal but until we choose a recipient we have no idea what size or style chair they will need. We've been working directly with Action Trackchairs in Austin. They've offered the lowest price possible including a substantial discount since the purchaser (WFTW) is a 501c3 charity. They will also help us apply for grants when the time comes. Different grants are available depending on the situation and injuries of the soldier.

I'm not directly involved in this process but I would be surprised if Action's vendors could provide these services as well as a lower price.

Okie dokie. Thank you for the reply. Sounds like we pretty much have it all covered than. I just know alot of these Vendors so I thought if we were in need and could save a few bucks, I'd check into it. If anything changes, let me know. I'll be glad to help with anything I can.
