    Paypal has a 6 month financing plan no interest.

    I have been on their site and they offer code. Do you know anything about this, if I am currently using your gateway setup within my form, for subscriptions?

    Thanks!

    Are you referring to this PayPal service? 

    PayPal Credit: https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/paypal-credit 

    I have quickly reviewed their documentation and it seems like they will need to choose to pay using PayPal credit once they are completing a payment, as far as I can see you do not need to set up anything on your JotForm integration, you will only need to set up your products. 

    Setting-Up-Your-First-Order-Form

    If you're referring to something else, please provide us a link with information about it, we will be glad to help you.

    Seems reasonable to me. Just wanted to see if i may have overlooked anything.
    I would agree. This makes sense, as a Paypal customer, myself.
    Thx much, Kevin!

    Actually, I need more help with this, please. If you might look into deeper.

    Here's why: I set anything under financing.paypal.com to be I wanted that account to accept paypal credit. They basically offered me code for my options which each time said I don't have an actual cart, like woocommerce, for example.

    However, duting my testing, it never offers me a paypal credit option. I was testing recently with .01 for a charge, but ... I had it set to $495, before. Not sure if I was in sandbox mode on jotform or not, though.

    If you can test to see if I should be offered the paypal credit at checkout ... I'm not sure why not. I saw the few reasons but none seemed to apply. We are left with where we are so again ... just seeking more help/input about that option showing.

    On mine, it only shows me credit cards i have on file, but not paypal credit. Maybe you can discover what is the issue. I wasn't sure if adding code is what i want to do, such as next to the submit button ... to offer it? I'm a little confused.

    Thanks! Attached.

    I am not sure how PayPal credit works but I did research on this a bit and it seems the checkout of merchant account needs to have the PayPal credit enabled. This is as per the help topic of paypal guide:  https://www.paypal.com/us/selfhelp/article/how-do-i-select-paypal-credit-as-my-payment-method-faq2870

    I would suggest you to please connect with Paypal support and ask them if it is possible to add option to pay through Paypal credit along with credit card and PayPal balance in the account checkout process.

    "There are two ways to choose PayPal Credit. If a merchant has a PayPal Credit button at checkout, you can simply choose that option."
    Maybe i need to just try something on my own since nobody is speaking specifically to my question details.
    I appreciate the effort. Still, i may need to go deeper in this one.

    Unfortunately, PayPal credit is not available to integrate with JotForm for displaying button for the merchant. Let me forward the thread to our backend team as a feature request for evaluation. I cannot guarantee that the feature will be implemented or cannot provide any ETA at this moment. However, if there is any update in this regard, you'll be posted here.

    Thank you!

    Hi. Since my last, I have found this:

    How do I know if I am eligible to promote PayPal Credit?

    You are eligible to promote PayPal Credit if you are a US based merchant PayPal merchant and have a One Time payment integration. Merchants with Reference Transaction and Recurring Payment integrations are not eligible. Merchants engaged in Real Money Gaming are also not eligible for promoting PayPal Credit. Additionally, we may periodically identify certain goods and services with respect to which you may not be eligible to promote PayPal Credit.

    My offer is an annual subscription. So, since it's recurring, it doesn't appear to be an option for PayPal Credit. This may help if it comes up, again. thx.
