    Hello,


    Is it possible to ask or force users to pay before opening or completing a form? After payment, they can go ahead and respond to form questions etc. Is this possible?

    I notice that it is possible to add the Paypal option but users get to use the form first and then asked to pay when they hit 'submit'. I'd like to have them pay to use the form before actually completing it. 


    Thank you.

    Unfortunately, that is not possible within a single form. You will need two separate forms for it such that you will ask the person to make payment first, then upon completion of payment, they get redirected to another form where they can fill up. This is because an instance of the submission is the time that a process for payment happens. You can check this guide to know how to redirect users after making a submission from the 1st form going to a specific link, or for your case, to your 2nd form: https://www.jotform.com/help/38-Redirecting-Users-to-a-Different-Page 

    Is there any specific concern to why you need them to make payment first before filling up a form? 

    Thanks.

    Thanks, Liyam! I will try that. 


    I am creating an audio response form for an oral assessment/quiz. I don't want students to see the questions beforehand. I don't want students to practice the questions ahead of time or to decide not to pay after practicing the answers.

    Thank you for the input, Amoynv. Perhaps someday, we can create a different process for forms, based on the idea that you have shared. And once we do, we'll sure to let you know.

    Thanks.
