Card Forms: When using PayPal Pro and encrypted form data, the form no longer attempts to process payments

    Good Afternoon,

    I am still having trouble with the encryption getting in the way of payments on my forms. I removed encryption on one of my forms and now it works fine. However on my Bond purchase form that has sensitive information, my clients payments do not go through because there is encryption. If I remove encryption once again, is my clients information still secure? 

    Thank you for your prompt response.

    I have cloned your form and I have tested both options while the encryption feature was enabled, I was able to pay directly on the form and I was also redirected to the PayPal payment page.

    I have just tested your form as well, when I selected the PayPal option I'm redirected to the payment page and I can see the encryption feature is actually turned  on for  your form. 

    Is the issue resolved now on your end? 

    If the problem persists, please check the web console and see for any errors that may appear there, please share us a screenshot about that.

    I don't know exactly what to screen shot. The client can go through the entirety of the payment if they select credit card it continues through to the Company information without requiring them to input their credit card. Also we have clients who enter the card info and it doesn't charge them.

    This is only with the forms that have encryption on. Again, if we remove encryption can it be guaranteed that the information is protected.

    I have been testing your form and I can see it processes the payment. Please note that as explained above the form should work no matter if encryption is enabled or disabled; however, if you disable the encryption feature your data will be still secure, please find everything related to our security on this page:

    Please go over the make a payment form as well. This was used today, with a credit card and the payment did not go through.

    On the Bond purchase, I guess we will have to see when one of my clients tries to purchase a new bond if it takes this payment.

    I have tested the other form you mentioned and I got the correct message when trying to submit the form, as it's on live mode, here is a screen-cast about my test: 


    I have  however noticed that your payment field is not required which means that the users may just enter their credit card and submit the form with the total ending up on $0, if the amount is equal or less than $0 then there will not be a charge and they will not be redirected to PayPal either. 

    I would also recommend you to check if the submissions ended up on the incomplete payments section, this guide will help you viewing the incomplete payment submissions: 

    Please let us know if the submissions are there.

    Good Afternoon, we updated the forms as you suggested and we had someone go on the Make a payment-newest to pay with a credit card today and it did not work

    I am able to reproduce this on my end. When encryption is enabled, the form no longer attempts to process the transaction.  I will forward this to our developers to have a look.  We will let you know as soon as we have any updates.
