    Hi SSNA,

    You are right, once you filled up the form and click "Payments Page" it will go to paypal page where they can put credit card details.

    I understand that you want to test the form first to see if payment on the form actually works. I know that you want to test its functionality.

    You can test Paypal by enabling Sandbox Mode. Paypal Sandbox is a virtual testing environment that mimics the live PayPal production environment.

    Right click on the Paypal Field then choose "Show Properties" and then make sure that Sandbox Mode is "Enabled".

    Please check this guide to know more about Paypal Sandbox (https://developer.paypal.com/docs/classic/lifecycle/sb_about-accounts/)
