    Fill out form on paypal automatically

    Asked by dominionchapel on October 17, 2012 at 01:39 AM


    Is there a way to integrate paypal standard, in a form such that the information entered in the form on the site is used to automatically fill out the form on the paypal billing page (please see https://cms.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/?cmd=_render-content&content_ID=developer/e_howto_html_formbasics scroll down to Filling Out FORMs Automatically with HTML variables)

    I would like to users not to have to enter the same information twice.  Please let me know if this is possible with jotform, it looks like paypal allows it.

    Thank you,

    Hi Bernadette,

    Please check this thread. I think the answer to your inquiry was the same as to what was mentioned by our colleague in that post.

    Please inform us if you have further inquiry.

    I don't think the thread referred helps.  I want the information entered by the customer to automatically show on the paypal billing information page when they are redirected to the paypal page after clicking submit on the form.

    The answer in the thread talks about extracting information from paypal, but i need the information extracted from jotform into paypal.

    Actually this is not possible on the current integration with Paypal. Jotform cannot pass data into the paypal transaction page other than the data into the payment integration which is the list of products along with price details

    As an alternative workaround would be to add a checkbox with the question "Same billing/shipping address? in order to hide the address field in your form, if billing and shipping is the same
