use existing paypal button which is linked to my autoresponder

    Asked on August 21, 2011 at 05:47 PM

    In order for my Aweber Autoresponder to send out my course to customers who've paid, I have linked my Aweber Autoresponder to an already existing PayPal button.  I know Jotform is integrated with PayPal.  I tried that method first.  But, if people pay with PayPal through Jotform integration, instead of through the button I have linked to my autorespoder, they will not be added to my autoresponders list.


    When a customer submits my form, how do I set up the form to lead them directly to a particular PayPal item I've set up in PayPal?


    I'm thinking I could probably remove the PayPal integration on my form, and then enter a custom url as the thank you page which leads them to that PayPal item?  But, I was hoping I could have my form linked to that PayPal item as well so that your database lets me know when they completed payment or not (submissions vs pending submissions).


    What's your advice?

    Hi Loribella,

    How about configuring your Paypal-integrated Jotform to send notifications to your Aweber account then creating a custom email parser in Aweber to extract customer information from the notification sent by our servers when someone buys your product?

    It will work in the same way as your Aweber and Paypal integration, although it will take some custom work done as Aweber does not have any form of integration with our service that's readily available.

    This thread might be of help:

    Hope I was able to answer your question. Thanks!

    Oh, and by the way this link might help too.

    Aweber's Email Parser feature uses RegEx, so you might want to learn about that to accomplish your goal.

    Good news! We have just released integration with AWeber. You can now connect your forms with AWeber email lists and follow up auto-responders.
