    Hi there

    I refer to the following article

    Of which, I pick up the following part.

    2.~PayPal standard, do not allow collecting credit card information on your own page

    Does this mean form owner cannot ask submitter to fill credit card number and so on in the form,

    moreover, form owner leaves the personal information of credit card to Paypal?

    Awaiting your confirmation whether my understanding is correct or not.

    PayPal standard does not have built-in credit card fields that are shown on the form, like other payment integration have, so the user cannot enter credit card details directly on the form. When the Paypal standard form is submitted the user will be redirected to the Paypal checkout page. There the users have an option to pay with PayPal or with a credit card.

    Just to mention, you cannot add the credit card fields to your form using the basic fields because that is against our Terms of use.

    You have to use one of our payment integrations if you want to have a payment form.

    Thank you for your reply.

    Let me confirm you what you explained me.

    Form owner creates a standard Pay Pal standard form as follows.

    The submitter shall send him/her back.

    To keep things short and simple, if you will use PAYPAL STANDARD on your form, here's what will happen from the submitter's perspective:

    1. They open your form

    2. They fill it out

    3. They submit it

    4. They will be redirected to PAYPAL to make the payment
