    I've had this issue before but cannot remember how it was fixed. I've created a form that connects to Paypal. the email account for the PP account is entered into the form but when I hit "Go to Payment Page" the button says "please wait" and it never sends the information to PP.

    Hi @mteel!

    I have tested your form and the page also gets stuck on Please Wait.

    Looking back at your previous asked questions within this forum. It looks like the fix my colleague provided was to remove the encryption on your form. You can also try to re-embed the form to Wix.

    Can you try to do that once more? Please let us know if this does not remedy the problem. 

    If needed here is the thread from your previous question in regards to this issue: https://www.jotform.com/answers/1508953

    I've removed the encryption from the form and tried all the other fixes suggested before. When I test the form within Jotform it works, in Wix it doesn't.

    not sure what to do now. I have to have this website with forms live by close of business tomorrow. Need help please. I've tried saving it in all different options. The form works fine in the Jotform tab but not on Wix. I've completed lots of websites in Wix using Paypal before. This is the second time I've had this issue. Seems like a simple process, but not working.

    We are sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused. I am able to replicate the issue at my end on my Wix web page with both direct URL and iFrame embed methods. Let me forward the issue to our backend team for further investigation. Once we have any update in this regard, we'll let you know here on this thread.

    Meanwhile, you may consider displaying the direct form link on the web page or use a different payment method on a new form.

    Thank you!

    Even the direct form link will not work within the Wix environment. I've spoken to them and they cannot assist with outside vendor code. Need help soon.

    I need the form on the page. I tried embedding the Jotform page into the website, it worked fine but the button still hangs up.  Weird that this has never been an issue before.

    Just wanted to add that if I update an existing form (that's on already on Wix website) it works fine. If I build a new form with paypal options, it doesn't. FYI.

    Can I get some sort of idea when this will be addressed? I've been doing workarounds to temporarily sidestep the issue, but cannot do so much longer. I need a resolution soon or I'll have to look for another solution. It's been 5 months now.

    thanks for your response.

    PS: I cannot be the only person having issues with Wix/Paypal and Jotform.

    Checking in again in regard to this issue. If this isn't fixable I need to know. It's been nearly seven months since I first brought this to your attention. Once again, older forms work, any new form doesn't.

    If you can't fix it I'll need to find another form editor to work with. 

    Thanks for your attention to this matter.

    We are terribly sorry for the ongoing issue. Your message has been received by our backend team and we have sent a note as well. Since you mention that the older forms are working fine, could you share the web page URL where the old form was embedded and working normally?

    We will wait for your response. Thank you!

    This is most likely related to iframe restrictions implemented by Wix for security purposes where all codes are loaded in a frame with a sandbox attribute. When the sandbox attribute is present, it can block form submission, block redirection unless proper sandbox values are set. According to the browser console error, the form requires allow-top-navigation value in the sandbox attribute in order for the form to go through. 

    01292020_OxPWnLa034.png

    Unfortunately, this sandbox value isn't implemented by Wix.

    Anyway, according to Wix, premium sites are not sandboxed. If you're on the premium plan at Wix, it should work for you. If not, you can try the direct URL embed method once again (I assume you've already tried it before). Example:

    This even worked for me on my free Wix site with your cloned form embedded in it. I've tried different browsers and it's all working. https://idarktech.wixsite.com/idarktech/paypal-form

    Example:

    If the above suggestion still doesn't work, you can contact Wix and asked why the frames are still sandboxed when you're already on the premium plan.
