I am running a joomla website and want to know how to use Jotform Paypal Payment tool to collect payments for Pay to read or Read more content.......

Thank you for posting your inquiry.
I'm not sure if you actually need jotform for this. I think you will need to customize your own CMS and insert your paypal gateway somewhere. I do believe you won't really need jotform in this process.
But if in case I'm mssing something, I'm forwarding this as well to our next tier support and see if they have some solution for you.

Thanks I await your reply
I also just created a form today that allows people to buy gift certifcates on my site using your forms and paypal should I put a captcha form on it to avoid spammers ? and should I be using https on the paypal forms ?

For your form that is being used for buying gift certificates, it would be best to secure your form by using HTTPS, as much as possible. But it is not that required as it can also run using only HTTP.
Captcha can also be a good addition in your form so for you to lessen some spammers attacking your form. But this won't be a complete solution to avoid spam attacks, but none the less will lessen by a huge margin.
If you have other questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to start a new thread.

Unfortunately, our membership software also does not work with Joomla. So, that's not possible.

Thanks! Liyam Now I just have to find how to do the HTTPS again...saw it once before.
Not sure what your comment means Aytekin ? Presume its about the pay to read question .... thanks

You can find how to use HTTPS at the Embed Form wizard.
Edit your form and make sure that you are at the Setup & Embed tab, then click Embed Form
Once the pop-up wizard appears, mark the checkbox for Secure Form, just beside the form URL
Alternatively, you can just replace http with https in your embed codes to have your form display as secure. Although actually, this won't be that necessary as once the payment has been made, the user gets redirected to a secure paypal login page to complete the payment.
In regarding to Aytekin's statement, yes it's about the pay to read issue that you had. This is one of the reasons why we prefer having one question per thread, so to avoid confusion. Anyway if you have other questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to start a new post. We'd be happy to receive and respond to them.
