    Asked by gritwald on January 30, 2011 at 07:30 PM

    Ok, to put it simple: I have a form. I want users to pay to see said form. I can use a lightbox code so the "Pay" form URL isn't shown, yet, using a redirect opens the form page in a normal brower tab(i.e shows the URL) duh. Therefore, I tried using an iFrame code, and it works just as an iFrame does, shows a webpage on another without the URL, but then the redirect leaves the iFrame and opens in a normal tab.

    What I need is a way to make users pay first, then view a form, and the form needs to be ONLY accessible AFTER payment goes though and there needs to be no way to view the form ANY OTHER WAY. I've tried every thing, but there is ALWAYS a way to view the forms URL or the URL of the page I have put the html code on. How do I do hide the URL?!

    Create a PayPal payment form using JotForm and place the URL of this second form as "Thank You URL" for that form. This way, users will only be able to access to the second form if they complete the payment.
