    What is the difference between regular PayPal, PayPal Express and PayPal Pro?

    Asked by WI_AWRA on January 13, 2017 at 02:06 PM

    What is the difference between regular PayPal, PayPal Express and PayPal Pro?

     

    I'd like for them to not have to leave the form to pay using a CC, but we don't have a Pro account. Is there any other way to do this?

     

    Thanks!

    The main difference between these integrations is the checkout experience. In PayPal standard, the user can only put their credit card details in the checkout page.

     

    While in PayPal Pro, the user can enter their credit card information in the form itself. Please refer to this user guide for more details: https://www.jotform.com/help/183-Difference-Between-PayPal-PayPal-Pro.

    Please check this article or blog post to know more about PayPal Express. Here's the link: https://www.jotform.com/blog/103-PayPal-Express-Checkout-is-now-available-for-JotForm-Forms.

    Please do try integrating your form to PayPal and verify which one works for you. Here's a related guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/391-How-to-Integrate-Form-with-Paypal

     

    I'd like for them to not have to leave the form to pay using a CC, but we don't have a Pro account. Is there any other way to do this?

    If that's the case, then I would highly suggest you use PayPal Pro.

     

    Hope that helps. If you have any questions, let us know. Thank you.

    But I don't get the pop-up with Express. It STILL takes me to the full PP Site.

    Hello,

    For Paypal express, upon pressing the submit button, a prompt should appear. This is what appeared when I tested my form:

    This shall appear if the Show total price on the form is enabled and that Shipping and Tax are enabled as well

    If upon making a submission this didn't happen, please let us know.

    Thanks.
