Create PayPal Vendor Form with Approval Before Accepting Payment

    Right now I have my Jotforms setup to take payment in advance of approval - essentially, any Vendor can pre-pay their space. I'd prefer to have Vendors submit thir Paypal and allow me to go into Paypal and approve or disapprove - this way I only take payments from "approved" vendors - how do I set this up?

    This is possible with our 'PayPal' standard and 'PayPal Pro' integrations.

    You will need to enable an 'Authorization Only' mode in Additional Gateway Settings, please see:

    Check my screenshot below. The arrow pointing down on the right side is what you need to click.
