    Unfortunately, no, it is not possible to pull PayPal user account data in form. Please note that when the user click on the Debit or Credit card payment method, the user needs to manually input the details. If they select PayPal, the user will have to log in to their PayPal account.

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Okay, is there an option to predefine the amount of money the user can pay through the form through PayPal to make him/her able to pay only the predefined amount not more not less?!

    Hello,

    If you are referring to passing the predefined amount that was calculated within the form, into PayPal integration, then it is possible by using User Defined Amount option within your payment integration.

    Kindly refer to the following guide for the detailed steps: How to Pass a Calculation to a Payment Field

    Great, is there a feature to add an automated section in the form to mention whether the payment has been collected successfully or not to be reflected in data after form submission?

    Hi there,

    After form submission when your users select the Product and choose PayPal as a payment getaway, they will be redirected to PayPal checkout, and confirmation for the payment will be displayed.

    In your Submissions Data Table, you will see the payment as completed, or as pending if some of the users did not submit the form correctly.

    Refer to this guide for additional information about PayPal Integration

    PayPal Frequently Asked Questions

    To finish your form successfully, follow the instructions and details that my colleague suggested above in this guide

    How to Pass a Calculation to a Payment Field

    Hope this information helps.

    Let us know if you need any further assistance.

    Thank you.

    Great, two more questions:
    - Is there an option to prefill some fields in a form and make these field un-editable for the user?

    -Does Jotform allow me to add discounts field in the form and create codes for the users which change the User Defined Amount?

    Hi there,

     Is there an option to prefill some fields in a form and make these field un-editable for the user?
    Yes, you can follow the instructions and details provided in the following guide on how to prepopulate form fields.
    Prepopulating Fields to Your Jotform via URL Parameters
    You can also use the Jotform Prefill feature in your case.
    Because you want those prepopulated fields to be un-editable for the user, you will have to Enable the Read-Only option for those fields.

    Does Jotform allow me to add discounts field in the form and create codes for the users which change the User Defined Amount?

    Unfortunately, the Coupon feature is not available for the "User Defined Amount" payment type.
    You can use Form Calculations and Conditional Logic to achieve a workaround if you want to use the "User Defined Amount" payment type and your users to be able to have a Discount option.

    Hope this information helps.
    Let us know if you need any further assistance.
    Thank you.

    Hello,

    - Is there an option to prefill some fields in a form and make these field un-editable for the user?

    Aside from my colleague suggestion, you can add a default value to your field then make it read-only.

    -Does Jotform allow me to add discounts field in the form and create codes for the users which change the User Defined Amount?

    You can add a short text field for coupon code and 2 form calculation widgets to hold user defined amount and the final amount if the user enters code. You can hide Final total amount as its value will be shown in the User Defined Amount field of the payment method.

    Do not forget to set Get Price from Final total amount.

    Then, add these conditions:

    Note: I have set the code as "test" and deduct 5 from the entered amount if the code is correct.

    Great, is there a way to have two scenarios for PayPal payments within the same form. like using "PayPal personal" and "PayPal "PayPal Checkout"?! I have a certain service that could be sold in cash or recurring payment can I have both options in the same form in any way or should I create two forms?

    Hello,

    While it is not possible to add two payment integration within a single form, there is a workaround way by creating two different forms for payment, and embedding the payment form into your main form.

    Here is our guide that detailed the step-by-step process in how to achieve multiple payments within a single form: How to Create a Basic Multiple Payment Form

    Please give it a try and let us know if you encounter any difficulty.
