    Paypal headers for each category?

    Asked by dasjell on August 17, 2012 at 09:16 PM

    I have a lot of choices for people to make when they are checking out via the paypal integration and would like a pause/header describing what the user needs to do. Instead it is just a long string of items all together.

    For example, A user may want a print but then will need to choose a frame. I want them to be able to choose from a variety of frames. If they choose a canvas print then there is no need for a frame so I want to indicate that in the header for that particular category. There doesn't seem to be that much flexibility with paypal - would love to be able to have folks choose these options in the form and have the price translate to the paypal integration.

    Unfortunately, paypal product listing feature can at most have checkboxes for different options. So, what you describe is not possible with JotForm. My recommendation would be to make it as close to what you want as possible, then copy the full form source code to your web site, and then hire a javascript programmer to accomplish what you want on the form. Maybe what you want will only take a javascript programmer a couple of hours, so you will have the best of both worlds.
