    I have sent out a form that requires an application fee, however when some people click on the PayPal button, the PayPal window pops up and then automatically closes and jotform gives an error that says “Bad Request (/payment-paypal-createOrder)- the value of a field is either too short or too long.” But, some people have been able to successfully pay and submit the form. What can cause this error? And what can they do to not receive the error when they try to pay?

    With which form you are having this issue with? I am unable to check your account as there is no account with your email address.

    Please let us know your account username or the email address you have used in your account profile. Alternatively you can also let us know any of your form ID, form URL or web page URL where you have embedded your form, and we will take a look.

    We will wait for your response.

    The form is under the account

    it is a private form, so I am not allowed to post the URL to a public site like this one. Are there any other alternatives to allow you to view the form?
