    Hello

    If you wish to have your form organized in more than one page, you can go to "Survey tools" and than add a "page break" right before the Paypal payment (this way you'll get a "next" page button):

    @grayhardwood. Did you mean that you want the Paypal page after clicking submit will go to a new tab or window? Is that what you are trying to accomplish?

    To be able to do that, you need to use the form source code and host it on your website. Then edit the source code and look for the starting section of the form tag and add target and set the value as "blank" to it

     

    This will open a new window after clicking submit. This will open a new tab and redirect to the Paypal Page. If you need further assistance, please do not hesitate to ask. Thank you

    Many Thanks
    Is this possible? I’ll try and explain what ive done lol
    I have paypal buttons for individual items on my site. When the customer choosse an item it opens a seperate Paypal page. Each time the customer adds an item to purchase, it adds this to the page that’s open.
    When I include choices on my website using Jot form it opens a separate Payal page to the one that’s been created as if it was a separate transaction (the more jotforms you have, the more pages)
    What I need is a way for the Jotform to add the customers amount (after submission ) to the Paypal page already open so the custromer can pay for all the transactions in one go. Then the submitted form needs to be emailed to me.
    Kind regards
    Gray

    Thank you for your response Gray.

    Looks like you want to implement a shopping cart, where a user can make multiple selections and they get added to their cart before checkout - which is in this case, a separate Paypal page.

    This cannot be achieved on a single form with Paypal Integration, as you may have observed.

    Paypal integration on forms is to help you collect payments along with the form information.

    You can achieve a shopping cart experience by following this paypal guide: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_shoppingcart-intro-outside

    Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.
