    Hi,

    The page you're using as your thank you page, http://www.aeromar.pt/c.php, is not working. Please change replace it with the original page where your form is, or the page where a custom "Thank You" message is displayed.

    Hope this helps. Let me know if you have further questions.

    Hello,

    Unfortunately, you cannot redirect the content of the iframe alone when you have a payment gateway inside your form.  By default when you have paypal payment tool set in your form, the parent page (regardless if it is inside an iframe) goes straight to paypal for logging in.  I'm just not sure how the process goes when you use credit card for payment.

    You also need to set your products inside your payment gateway tool by using the wizard provided for the payment field.  I noticed that you created some text fields that is not being read by your payment field.

    You can read more about paypal on this link: http://www.jotform.com/help/50-PayPal-Forms

    Hope this helps.

    thks for your help..

    I have some text fields not in use, because direct paymenyts are not supported by merchant country. 

    i can only use paypal express check out.

     

    In the payment wizzard i can define a amout value in euros for my produck.

    But i want that amount to be dynamic, the amount is given by an php session.

    i can't insert that session value because the wizard only accepts numbers !!!!

    Hi,

    Jotform makes payment integration as easy as possible for the average people who'd like to sell their products via the internet. Unfortunately, the payment wizard only accepts numbers because we believe that allowing custom php scripts in the form might open a whole new world of problems for our users and for us as well.

    I'm afraid I cannot offer you any easier workaround to achieve this. That is just the way our Paypal integration is. Thank you for your understanding.

    i found a way.

     

    Instead of selecting a product, i  choose make a donation....

    in the suggested donation i enter a value like 100€

     

    After this i extract the code, to dreamweaver, i make the fiel read only, and i enter the php code session.

     

    It works great, and now i have a dynamic payment in my website !

     

    Thks for all your help...

    Hi,

    Glad that you were able to sort things by yourself. I figured you use the form's source code and edited it via Dreamweaver, is that correct?

    A little piece of advice though, since you are using the source code to embed the form, any changed you made on the Form Builder will not be reflected to your embedded form. Also, any extra input fields that you add using Dreamweaver would mean nothing, and would not be included in each submission entry, so be wary.


    Regards

    yes i know, 

    But in this case , the Donation selection of paypal payments, instead of product, even in the embed form ofers the possibility for the "Guest user" to donate the amount he want's. personal choice....

     

    So i bypass that choice!!!!

    i make the field read only, and i give the donation amount the value of the session that i want.

     

    Works nice! 

     

    Already tested !
