    Hello, I didn't see your email in our bouncelist and I do see that you have 2 submissions on one of your form with the 1 being the test purchase you made. I believe that you will have to enable the PayPal IPN (Instant Payment Notification) for us. Since to my knowledge JotForm relies on that being enabled to send you notice about receiving a payment otherwise you will only recieve the normal email notification about this.

    To learn how to enable the PayPal IPN please read here:


    (it's the last answer on the page provided by fxr which walks you through the steps)


    Also you will need to use this URL to input into the IPN:

    Thank you,


    I set IPN ​​(the address you have given me), and the thanks you page.


    I made test purchase to $ 0.10, instant payment email came on paypal@yesvisitor.com, but the submission came on andrewmayers@outlook.com (I checked email setting for the alerts but is set to paypal@yesvisitor.com)


    The submission comes but to the wrong address
