    Hosted checkout with PayPal Pro?

    Asked by expeditedtxpt on January 12, 2017 at 10:16 AM

    Is it possible to have integrate PayPal Pro with Jotform AND have a hosted payment page where customers enter payment info? I know this is feasible on PayPal's end. The reasons I want this setup are to reduce my PCI compliance and because PayPal Standard doesn't always give the option to pay without a PayPal account.

    If I understood you right, you would like your users to be able to submit the form and when they do they are on a PayPal page where they enter credit card information. If that's the case you can use our regular PayPal payment integration and here is the guide on how to do that: https://www.jotform.com/help/391-How-to-Integrate-Form-with-Paypal

    If you had something else in mind, please let us know.

    Thank you!

    My apologies, I didn't notice the PayPal Pro part. So for PayPal Pro, as you most probably know, your user is not redirected to PayPal's checkout website, everything happens in the form itself.

    Here is more about the difference between regular and Pro: https://www.jotform.com/help/183-Difference-Between-PayPal-PayPal-Pro

    Thank you!

    Thank you. The reason I don't like PayPal Standard is because it sometimes forces users to have a PayPal account (see screenshot), and I was hoping this problem would be alleviated with Pro. However, I still want all Payment data to be entered on PayPal's website, not mine. I am looking into 2Checkout as an alternative.

    We do not support PayPal Pro Hosted Solution, but we do provide secure PayPal Pro integration to accept card payments directly from a form. If you embed your form with an iFrame/Embed code it will be loaded from our servers.

    We are also certified as a PCI DSS Level 2 Compliant Service Provider.
