    Using Paypal in my forms

    Asked by lizbowyer on February 18, 2013 at 12:25 PM

    I am thinking of using your service for a client of mine who takes payments through Paypal for booking places on their sports courses. I just need to verify how this would work.

    There is a limited amount of spaces available on each course, these are determined via Paypal (using stock limits). At which stage does Paypal become involved with your forms. Would the amount of "stock" available be checked prior to completing the form? Or would users have to compelte the form first before Paypal becomes involved? In which case, if there are no places available on that course (stock = 0) would the form details be retained or not be saved in their Jot Form account.

    Many thanks for your help.
