    I want to use paypal before redirect them to my paid pdf.

    Asked by James on April 02, 2013 at 08:29 AM

    Hello, i am sorry if this is completely out of Jotform usage but I was wondering if I could use Jotform for the below:

    I run a website where suppliers can download a Safely Certificate (PDF) - but i would like them to pay via PayPal before they can download it. I was thinking that they could enter their details and on submit would take them to a page where the PDF would be located - however i would need that page to not be viewable to the outside world.

    Does this make sense (sorry new to Jotform)? or does anyone have any better ideas - all ideas welcome.

    Thank you

    Hi there, 

    You can create a form and Include a Paypal payment field.
    You can then create an Autoresponder E-mail that will be generated once the payment process is completed.  

    This E-mail can contain the PDF download link.

    Or you can have the user redirected to a custom URL after the payment is completed.

    Here is a sample form that accomplishes something like what you are looking for:


    Give that a try and let us know if that helped!
