    Thank you for contacting us. Like what's being discussed on the other thread payflow has a higher limit and I don't think that PayPal standard and PayPal Pro in Jotform will meet your needs. You can always give it a try since it's free but we cannot give assurance whether it does accept above the limit that you wanted.

    Jotform doesnt allow me to do subscription with my Payments Pro account. Paypal doesnt "do" payments pro anymore. Ive talked with PayPal IT and theyve looked into this matter. Payments Pro is an older version.

    Paypal Payments Pro doesnt work anymore.. All new Payment Pro acounts are Payflow Pro.. This was from PayPal IT:



    This is a link that explains the feature request for PayFlow in JotForm :

    As discussed, you will need to integrate Recurring Billing manually into your website. With recurring billing, you are able to create recurring payment profiles and accept payments from Credit Cards, PayPal accounts as well as Automated Clearinghouse.

    In order to integrate this, you will need some programming skills. We highly recommend for you to get in touch with a developer if you are not confident in integrating it by yourself.

    You will need 5 items before you start making API calls, you should already have these details, but if not, please contact PayFlow support at 1-888-883-9770 to obtain them :

    1. Payflow Endpoint = (LIVE) or (TEST/PILOT)
    2. Payflow User = ?
    3. Payflow Password = ?
    4. Vendor = ?
    5. Partner = PayPal

    Once you have obtained them, you are ready to make an API call. Recurring Billing uses ACTION parameters to manipulate profiles (add, modify, reactivate, cancel, and inquire about status).

    You can Add (ACTION=A) a new recurring profile either by submitting the data that defines the profile or by converting an existing transaction into a profile. Upon successful creation of a profile, PayPal activates the profile, performs the Optional Transaction if specified, initiates the payment cycle, and returns a Profile ID. Upon failure, PayPal does not generate the profile and returns an error message.

    Please refer to this documentation as it will explain in details what you will need to do in order to integrate Recurring Billing :

    You can also view some examples according to the PayFlow Software Development Kit :

    Hope this helps. Please do revert back if you require further technical assistance.

    Thanks for providing us the details. I have now raised this thread as a feature request to our higher ups. I think this will be a good addition on the payment tools, but I could not guarantee you anything about this yet. Only our higher team will be able to provide you updates as soon as there is any progress on this request.

    You might consider using the standard paypal payment tool as for now.

    Thank you and have a nice day!

    That won't work. I am wanting to have subscriptions on my website. Only Payflow now does that. Thanks though.

    I got it to work! Please let people know with DPRP issues that Paypal doesnt sell Payment Pro 3.0 anymore. They most likely have a proflow account. Payments Pro Proflow. 

    They need to downgrade to Payment Pro 3.0 (Legacy Version) for this to work. This might mean that they need to recreate an account. Don't do it until PayPal gives you a special token. They don't sell that service so it needs to come from a Senior Account Executive.
