    How do I set up Paypal to be used on an order form?

    Asked by mcavoyaz on July 15, 2017 at 10:28 AM

    I am trying to set up a very simple order form and have 2 questions. 

    1. How do I set up Paypal so that I can use that as the payment form?  

    2. How do I add a shipping OPTION, that will then add that amount to the total? Just an option. Other people will choose an option of local pickup.  


    Thank you.

    To setup PayPal payment integration with your form, I suggest you refer to this guide — How-to-Integrate-Form-with-Paypal

    As for setting up a shipping fee to the products in your payment field, please check out this guide — How-to-Add-Shipping-Cost-to-Payment-Forms

    As for the pickup option, you can add two products of the same kind and price. The first product has a shipping fee (indicated) and the second one has no shipping fee. You can do this since there is an option to charge shipping fee differently per product.

    However, if that will not work for you, you can use regular form fields to create your product list. Then, with the help of calculation values, you can have the products total into a Form Calculation widget and pass it to the PayPal payment field after following this guide — How-to-Pass-a-Calculation-to-a-Payment-Field
