    Trying to understand how third party app works with JotForm.

    I have a PayPal acct. It is tied to my credit card. If I make a payment to a company, my credit card is automatically used to make the payment to the company. understood.


    Can I use my PayPal account to make a payment to a bank account using the receivers bank account and routing number? There is no merchant account in this case since the entity I am paying is a not for profit company and not a merchant.

    I am not entirely sure, but I think that PayPal does not support payments from the PayPal directly to the bank accounts. You may contact PayPal Support to find out more information on this subject.

    We have a Dwolla integration that should support the bank transfers via their platform:
