It is all about market laws and a psychology: satisfied customers need to “pay back” somehow the service or the product that made them happy.
They can do it with a donation, or maybe, paying something more for the next product they are going to purchase.
Let’s make an example: you sell an ebook that costs sixteen dollars, but you also offer your users to support your business adding more dollars, because your products have improved their life in the past.
According to the statistics, at least 10 customers on 100 will pay more than the requested price, rounding off the price of the product to twenty dollars: it isn’t bad, is it?
Sites like Priceline have created a business on this idea and take advantage of the power of the sale system based on how much users are willing to pay to accommodate their needs.
This plugin is not subject to the GDPR as it does not store any sensitive information except for the ones used on WordPress and WooCommerce, which are already handled through their software.

Unfortunately Name Your Price and Request a Quote are not compatible. Therefore it is not possible to have them work together, the way you had in mind. With Request a quote you are able to accept or reject a quote request, that way you can avoid direct purchase of the customer.
Hi; Evan! The scenario you describe is more likely achievable with the use of our YITH WooCommerce Gift Cards (https://yithemes.com/themes/plugins/yith-woocommerce-gift-cards/). This plugin allows you configure gift cards with a fixed amount (chosen by the administrator) or a variable amount (chosen by the user). The code generated will be sent to physically or by email to the recipients specified during the purchase of the gift card. If you want, you can test the features through a sandbox by clicking on Launch Admin Demo at the following link http://plugins.yithemes.com/yith-woocommerce-gift-cards/.
