    You can do that with the help of conditions. To achieve such, you need to use the Update/Calculate Field conditional logic.

    Here's a sample form:

    The page 2 of the form above will be prepopulated with inputs from page 1.

    Below is how the condition is created. (I needed three conditions for the form above).

    I hope this helps. If you need any further assistance, please feel free to contact us again anytime.

    Thank you.

    First of all, I have seen that you have a Guest account. Please let me suggest you have a Free JotForm account at the following link: 

    Related to your question, I have cloned your form in order to test it on my side. I have checked the condition that you have set to field of "Full Name" to populate. I have seen that this condition is working properly. The "Full Name" is filled on the second page when fulfilling the "Full Name" on the first page.

    However, it is not possible to populate the Image Upload Widget field with conditions in forms.

    Moreover, I have seen that you have already set the Image Upload Widget on the first page as required, the user is not able to skip the page without uploading a picture. Why do you need the same field on the second page?

    When you submit your form, it will redirect to the payment processor you have set it up with, so that your users can make a payment.

    In order for this to happen, you must set up your payment field with your correct credentials. For example, if you use a PayPal payment field, you can follow this guide for setting it up:

    If you use Stripe, you can follow this:

    If you use Dwolla, you would follow these instructions:

    Whichever payment processor you choose, you must have an active account with that payment processor, and than use its correct account settings for filling out and configuring your payment field. When a payment field is configured and your users select to purchase one of your products, they will be redirected to the payment processor of your choice for making their payment.

    If you want your forms to process payments, you must register for an account. With a free account, your forms will be able to accept up to 10 payment submissions per month. You can register over the following link:
