    Alphabetic characters cannot be used in a quantity option for Paypal products. This value is directly sent to Paypal for processing, and since they cannot evaluate a value with non-numeric characters, the transaction page returns an error.

    Therefore, you should not use "1 Student" and "2 Students" as quantities for your payment section. Please replace them with just "1" and "2" to make this work.

    To go about this:

    1.  Open your form in edit mode
    2.  Select your form's payment section
    3.  Click the Wizard button found at the upper right corner of the payment section

    4.  Click Next twice until you get to the products screen
    5.  Edit the quantity option and remove the "student" and "students" text for each item

    6.  Finish then save the changes to your form

    Hope this helps!
