    I am testing out the form I created and everytime I fill it out I get a "authentication/authorization failed. You do not have permissions to make this API call."

    I have checked your form and it seems you have not added any credentials in your PayPal pro integration.

    Please fill the required information in the PayPal pro integration.



    Let us know how it goes.

    Ah I guess I misunderstood how the form worked. I'm not needing it to send a payment to my PayPal account I just need to be able to have my customer give me their card information and authorize me to use it on a set amount on different purchases. Is there a way to do that? Thank you for your response!

    Unfortunately, no, it is not possible to just capture the credit card details in plain field. If you want to use the built-in payment tool, you will have to integrate it with your merchant account.

    I would suggest you to please integrate your payment tool with your PayPal account and that will solve your problem. If you just want to collect the payment information from users and charge them at a later date, it is possible to achieve your requirement by taking advantage of our "Payment Authorization" feature.

    Hope this helps.

    I also faced the similar kind of problem but after some days I just cleared the cookies website and tried to authorize it again and then it worked.
