    That's because you are using Paypal Standard. When you submit the form, it would redirect to Paypal's checkout page.

    However, as far as I know, when the user completes the checkout, charges are still not automatic instead you will have to manually capture the user's payment within your Paypal's dashboard.

    Thanks. Should I sandbox it to see? I can’t test PayPal with my own account.

    are there non-payment order templates available?
