Cashie/Jotform/Paypal Integration

  • Profile Image
    Asked on July 14, 2011 at 11:50 AM


    I am currently in the process of creating a website that offers products (wedding invitations) with multiple options (colour, size etc). After much tribulation I have decided to use Cashie cart that is both flexible and user friendly. However, I need to capture information that personalises the product (bride and groom's names, wedding venue, date etc). This is a feature Cashie fails to offer. Cashie is well integrated with Paypal and directs the customer to Paypal to pay or not if using Paypal Payment Pro. Is there any way that I can create a form that the customer fills out during the payment process that captures the "rich text" data I require? I have had a dabble with the paypal form creator on Jotform, but it only allows me add products there and then and add their variables. This is something I have already done in the Cashie cart and as such only require a form that integrates in some way with the "review your payment page" or some sort of custom payment page where the customer can add their debit/credit card details and their personal wedding information.


    Thanks in advance for andy advice.

    Hi papertiger,

    Thank you for using JotForm.

    To address your problem, I do have two possible solutions for you. First is through JotForm Paypal Payment form (as illustrated below). 

    To create a new PayPal form, open the “Payment Tools” toolbox on the left side and drag “PayPal” icon into your form. You will see two options on the Payment Tools. “PayPal” option allows you to create PayPal forms for PayPal Standard. If you have a  “Payment Payment Pro”, you can use the second option to get users to enter credit card details right on your page.  

    Payment Wizard: Account Information 

    When you add the PayPal field to your form Payment Wizard will launch automatically. You will be asked to enter your PayPal account information. 
    Payment Account:  Enter your PayPal account email address 
    Need Payer Address:  If you will be shipping a product to the user or need address for some other purpose, select Yes.  
    Currency:  Select the currency in which your products will be priced in. 


    Payment Wizard: Payment Options  

    To understand what types of payment forms you can create with JotForm, see  Payment Form Types  page. 

    A  product  can be anything that requires  one time payment . Example products might be shipped goods, digital goods, event registrations. 

    A  subscription  on the other hand will get users to pay you a  recurring payments . Once signed-up user’s PayPal account will send you payment periodically. You can get these payments weekly, monthly or yearly.  

    A  donation  is also a  one time payment  just like a product, but users can  set their own price .  


    Payment Wizard: Products  

    Enter your product prices and options. Each product must have a name and price. You can also have an image for your product.  

    Click on “Add New Options to add additional choices for users to select. For example, if you are selling a t-shirt, you can ask users to select quantity, t-shirt size and color.  


    Payment Wizard: Thank you 

    Once you complete all steps on the payment wizard, you will see a final confirmation page. 


    Form Builder Options: 

    Here is how our finalized looks like: 


    You can edit label of your question by clicking on “My Products” or click on the toolbar buttons to configure your question. You can also click on the wizard icon on your question to re-launch your wizard and update your product details.  

    It takes only couple of minutes to create a PayPal Form with JotForm. It is also highly flexible. You can create multiple product forms with many options to choose.

    Another solution is through the combination of JotForm and Cashie. From your JotForm form builder, under the "Setup & Embed" tab, click "Thank You".



    A window that prompts you to select a Thank you page will appear. Select the "Custom URL"


    Then a JotForm will prompt you to enter the destination URL which is your cashie page.

    Hope this helps! If you have any other questions please feel free to contact us.
