    I am wanting to know how I to have a PayPal feature in my form. I have a PayPal account setup but don't know what to do next. I tried to simply choose the PayPal feature for my form, but it wasn't looking like people could actually make payments. This is for an elementary school admission application that requires a payment. Also, what is the difference between PayPal, PayPal Express and PayPal Pro?

    Hi there,
    I'm still having trouble integrating PayPal on my form. Right now the
    payment form looks like a single line of information with a checkbox. How
    do our users get redirected to PayPal to make the payment? It doesn't look
    like people are making payments.
    Thanks!

    For example in this PayPal field in your form:

    If your user checks one of the product and submits the form, he will be redirected to PayPal to finish the payment. And that's how it works. You can actually test by submitting.

    The submission, in that case, is finished when the user pays through PayPal.

    If you have any additional questions please let us know.

    Thank you!
