    On this thread we have explained to you why it will not work. What you were trying to apply is simply not the JotFrom paypal integration. You have to use the official JotForm paypal payment tools (and go to the wizard) to have a working paypal payment form.

    The latest I checked, this form http://www.jotformpro.com/form/32394792784974 submits just fine. But this is not a JotForm Paypal form.

    Unfortunatelly, it will be difficult for us to support you on this if you insist on embedding the paypal html code into the form since we cannot guarantee the correctness of the code.

    The least I can suggest you can try on this is to try re-embedding the form in your website using its iframe code to prevent script conflict.


    Please inform us if re-embedding using the iframe code makes any difference.
