    Payment button on Form

    Asked by carlawainwright on March 19, 2014 at 06:32 PM


    I am launching a new website and would like to be able to have students sign up to the retreats directly on the webpage and pay - I've been looking through your site and want to be sure I understand correctly how I need to set this up. I require a $10 account so that there will be an option to pay at the bottom of the form and this then takes them to PayPal or does this in essence become the checkout page? I'm unclear on all the steps that a customer would go through. 

    And you may not know the answer to this question, but do I also then require a PayPal Payments Advanced account as well - or does that become redundant?

    thank you for your help!

    Hi Carla,

    Using the Standard Paypal Payment Tool should suffice. User will be redirected to Paypal's checkout page when they submit the form. They have to pay the product over Paypal and once a successful payment has been made, they will be redirected back to your form's thank you page if they choose to do so. Please read this article to learn more about using this tool http://www.jotform.me/help/50-PayPal-Forms

    Thanks for using Jotform!
