    Hi Regina,

    To accept payments/donations using Paypal you need to have a
    Paypal Business account. Make sure that in your Paypal profile page you
    have set a Business address.
    In your PayPal profile, under Selling Preferences > Instant Payment Notification
    Preferences, set the following:
    Instant Payment Notification (IPN): on
    Instant Payment Notification (IPN) URL:https://www.jotform.com/ipns/paypal.php

    The email address has to be the primary email address in your Paypal account.
    If you have registered multiple email addresses in your Paypal account,
    make sure you use the primary email address. Otherwise, IPN will not work.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,
    Mliz
