    I'm doing non-profit money collection from friends and family to help local non-profit self-organized online study group. If I do manually, my friends will send in money using paypal friends & family, there is no fee involved. 

    if I use jotform, is there a gateway to get thru PayPal friends and family, with no transaction fee? 

    thanks.

    Unfortunately, it's not possible to collect donations via PayPal through a Jotform form as friend and family payments. The transactions are treated as selling products and services. 

    If you are a nonprofit, you may contact PayPal support to know what kind of discount they have for nonprofits.
