    Sending Extra Data to a Third Party Payment Solution

    Asked by Swaartbaard on June 24, 2012 at 05:43 PM



    Im using JotForm to collect customers details. My 'thank you' url is the link to a 3rd party payment solution so that customers can pay.


    How would I go about sending the cart total to PayFast? Would it be possible to add this very simple script to the JotForm submit button?:





    Thanks in advance

    Are you by chance using JotForm Application? If indeed, I recommend you email the inquiry instead since we have difficulty at this support level testing/checking license jotform apps.

    Please inform us if this is not the case =)

    Hello Swaartbaard.  I'm not sure if your 3rd party payment solution can accept post data submission from JotForm. But I think it's feasible that you can create another page to process the data as your Thank you page by using JotForm's sending post data feature, then this will be the middle process which will forward to PayFast.
