    I need this form to allow clients to input their invoice number, invoice total, and submit a payment via paypal. The paypal will be linked to my business paypal account.  I have included a screenshot of a template I think might work for me but I cannot figure out how to edit it. I want to change the area that says "my products" and has the different pricing options and replace it with the invoice number and the amount being paid. Is this possible? 

     

    Thank You!

    Hi again,

    To change the fields that says "my products" you can replace it by following the instructions below:

    1. Click the Payment Wizard icon

     

    2. By scrolling down, you can see the Payment Type and please select the User Defined Amount. Then, change the Payment Type Sub Label into "Invoice", click save.

    3. To add an Invoice Number, simply add a Textbox field on your form and label it as Invoice Number.

     

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thank you for your response! Before I can do anything it is asking for a paypal API username and password. When I input this information it says it cannot be verified. Is there something I need to do first or is this something I need to contact paypal for?

    Thank You

    Please make sure that you have agreed to the billing agreement for the Paypal Business account. You may contact Paypal to confirm this. If you have, please try submitting the form with a minimum payment to verify that the paypal integration is successful.

    If you are still experiencing an error during the submission, please let us know.
    Regards.

    I have contacted PayPal regarding the API username and why it cannot be verified, they're supposed to be getting back to me. 

    Just so I'm clear, can I use the paypal form/button with a regular business account or do I need to have the Payments Pro account?

     

    Thank You
