    Questions:

    1)Can you use the Jotform form system to gather increased customer contact information of say 12 fields some (3) fields having tumbledown menu selection.

    1a) Is there a maximum number of selections allowed in a tumble down menu?

    2)Will JotForms automatically integrate to a payment system like PayPal or only to PayPal?

    3)

    Can you use other languages on JotForm?

    4)Could you provide a more detailed explanation of how JotForm integrates with PayPal.

    5)Is the integration with PayPay bi-directional? ie. can payPay send an acceptance number or all necessary acceptance numbers in the event of international payments, back to JotForm and have Jotform retain that (those) number(s)?

    Thank you that is all I have for now

    John

    Hello John,

    Thank you for contacting our support team.

    Since you have quite a de questions, I will be separating them out into separate threads in order to avoid confusion among your inquiries.

    On this thread, I will handle all of your questions regarding PayPal and payment integrations.

    2)Will JotForms automatically integrate to a payment system like PayPal or only to PayPal?

    - No, if you want your form to integrate with PayPal or any other payment method you will need to create the integration yourself. You can follow this user guide to assist you with JotForm's payment integrations: Mastering-Payment-Form-Integrations-with-JotForm

    4)Could you provide a more detailed explanation of how JotForm integrates with PayPal.

    - For more information on JotForm's PayPal integrations, I do suggest that you take a closer look at the following user guides:

    PayPal-Forms

    How-to-Integrate-Form-to-PayPal-Checkout 

    How-to-Integrate-Form-with-Paypal-Standard 

    How-to-Integrate-Form-with-Paypal-Pro 

    How-to-Set-up-PayPal-Along-with-Other-Payment-Options

    5)Is the integration with PayPay bi-directional? ie. can payPay send an acceptance number or all necessary acceptance numbers in the event of international payments, back to JotForm and have Jotform retain that (those) number(s)?

    - No, unfortunately, the integration with PayPal is not bi-directional, the data will only go from JotForm to PayPal and cannot be returned from there. However, after payment is made you will receive the payment details in the submission history and it will have a transaction ID that you can use to track the payments in the PayPal platform.
