    Trouble integrating Paypal with submission form

    Asked by tthompson25 on July 11, 2014 at 06:31 PM

    I own a website development business and am currently creating a website for a client and using jot form for the submission forms.  my client tthompson25 has given me access to his account and I have set up the following form for him:  http://form.jotform.us/form/41916306966159

    I'm trying to integrate the paypal link at the bottom and I'm not really having the best of luck, can you give me a step by step tutorial re: how to do this?  

    Also, can you clarify something......If the form has a paypal link.....does it need a submission link as well?  I don't really understand how the user will submit both the payment and the form in one step....as you can see on this form I created 2 steps but I'm not sure if this is necessary....I've created alot of forms with your product, but this is my first one with payment....thanks for your help.  You can e-mail me at brad@paintedpixeldesign.com

    The owner of this account is Tony Thompson, tthompson@arcpointlabs.com if you need to verify anything.  His number is 573-243-7575

    Here is the site I'm building for him:

    You are not doing the correct procedure, no need for a Paypal link in a form.

    Rather than that, you must integrate the form using either Paypal Pro (for Merchant Accounts) or Paypal (for standard paypal emails)

    Please check these guides :

    PayPal Forms

    Difference Between PayPal & PayPal Pro


    For further help on regards to this question, let us know.

    By doing this, you'¡l a notification for both the form data and the paypal notification.
