Paypal: How to allow users to pay directly from form instead of redirecting to PayPal checkout page?

    Thanks for the help, Sven. I wasn't aware of how to use those widgets. 

    Can you help me with one more thing? I'd like to have a second page to this form where my customer pays via PayPal. I'd like them to put in their name, address, and credit card info and click a button to pay directly from the form. If possible, I'd like the name, email, and address fields to auto-complete on future transactions.

    Is this possible?

    Both PayPal Pro and PayPal Express allow for paying via credit card directly in the form:

    Both require either a PayPal Pro or PayPal Business account. 

    It would not be possible to have the data pre-populate based on previous submissions.

    Would it or wouldn't it?

    You can pass a calculation to the payment field but the payment is still processed in the same manner.  If you pass the total to a regular PayPal field, users would still be forwarded to PayPal for payment.
