    How can I insert a paypal button to the form?

    Asked by mguzmandofic on July 22, 2017 at 08:50 PM


    I tried pasting the generated code by paypal in the 'source code' in my form, and I can see the buttom in the build view but I don't see this buttom in the published form.

    I attached:

    . an image with form in a build view and with form published

    Thanks a lot

    You can insert the code for your Paypal button by adding a Text element on your form

    Once added in the form, click the element in the builder, and click the edit button

    Then click the source code button 

    Next, a window should appear where you can paste the code. Then click the OK button

    Once  done, click the save button

    If you have questions, please let us know.

    It looks like that the PayPal button code is being stripped due to security restrictions.

    The solution is to use a PayPal integration on form. It works in a similar way to the PayPal buttons, the form user is being redirected to the PayPal upon a form submission. Please check the next guide to find out how to integrate your form with PayPal.
