    I am not receiving the submissions of my forms via email, why is this?

    Asked by opportunitiesunited on January 27, 2014 at 09:46 PM

    I have a form attached with a paypal button.

    I am receiving the paypal money, but not the forms with the information.

    The forms are not even clicking over in the Jotforms account as new submissions.

    I have 2 forms with the same issue.

    These are the links:
    1# http://opportunitiesunitedmoneymaker.com/joinphase2.html
    2# http://opportunitiesunitedmoneymaker.com/joinphase1.html

    Please help!

    I do see that your forms do contain Incomplete Payments, do verify that the payments have gone through properly through your PayPal Account and then complete the process on the incomplete payment section of the Submissions page.



    Additional to this, do try setting the Pending Payment Email option, like so:

    Thank you for your reply.
    What do you mean by setting the pending payment email option?

    I don't understand.
    We are receiving our money into our paypal account, so why is paypal not sending confirmation of payments. Do I need to call them??

    Hello, when a Payment to the Paypal is incomplete, the submission remains on JotForm Database unless the Payment is completed. This is why the submission data is not yet showing nor you are receiving notification emails until the Payment is processed and completed.

    For incomplete payments, you can still get notified by JotForm by doing what my colleague has posted by enabling the Pending Payment E-mail


    You can access the incomplete Payments by checking the Submissions Page of the form and clicking the Incomplete Payments button. You can either delete or process the payments further from that page so that it will now be shown on your submission page


    If you require further assistance, please do not hesitate to ask. Thanks
