    Asked on February 20, 2013 at 12:13 PM

    Hi there.


    Please, I am trying to create a form with the PAYPAL option, BUT I am bot able to make it work properly.


    Let's see if you guys can help me.


    My Paypal account type is Standar.

    I just create a form with email field and paypal tool (standar one, not the PRO). I fill paypal option (as it ask me), but I miss the place where it should ask me for my Paypal accound, although I add it into the email alert (well, there I type my email paypal account).

    But then, I test the form and when I click on SEND button it redirects me to Paypal and it says to me that:


    We have not been able to proceed the transaction due too there was a problem with the Paypal email address provided by seller..........



    So, any help would be appreciate it!


    Thank you so much.

    Hi Victor,

    You can correct that by running the Wizard for the Paypal Payment Tool, just click on the "Wand" icon;

    After that, enter your correct email address on the Paypal Account Section box:

    Click "Next" button to finish.

    Let us know if you need any further assistance.

    I'm creating 3 separate forms for entries into our event, being as one of my jobs with this organization is webmaster (dubious at best). I'm close to having my forms set up as I'd like, but I've been waiting to the last to set up the PayPal payment section. I am not the secretary treasurer, and therefor I do not have the PayPal account information (happily). If I'm reading the above correctly, I only need the email address that the PayPal account is asigned to? I don't need any further information about the PayPal account such as passwords etc?


    Thank you,
