    I contacted PayPal because my JotForm PayPal standard payment tool was not working on Blackberries.  The test form is on:

    https://secure.jotformpro.com/form/21595078390965

    After a few email exhcnages with customer support, PayPal confirmed that their check out process is not compatible with Blackberry.  But the guy explained that it is compatible with what they call "Mobile Express Checkout", which is for mobile websites and is compatible with most popular mobile devices.

    They sent me the following link for information on how to do it:

    https://www.x.com/developers/paypal/products/mobile-express-checkout

    It is a bit over my head, but before I try to figure out if I understand it, would this work with a Jot Form?  In other words, could I treat the JotForm like a mobile website to use this thing?

    It seems speed is key these days, and our folks are so floodded with emails that if they can't take action when they read it while in line at the supermarket, they forget to do anything about it later on when they get back to their desk and the rest of the other 300 emails they received overnight....

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    I have now forwarded this to our development team as a feature request. We'll see if this can be possible for implementation. Please note that we have many other features to be accomplished and our developers priority are those features that are requested more often. As of now, I can't give you any ETA about this feature but rest assured they'll be notified about this.

    We'll keep you posted. Thanks for using JotForm!

    Thanks.  This could be a great tool to use jotform as an alternative to a mobile mini-site...
