Paypal Options to pay by credit card.Asked by asccombaillaux on November 16, 2014 at 09:53 AM
I tested all the paypal widgets paypal, paypal express, paypal pro but I have not been able to find any parameter whichi woul allow me:
- to enter the "no paypal account" screen by default
- to prepopulate all user information such as lastname, christian name, e-mail, zip code, city which have been entered the calling jotform.
My payment form is called upon parameter "Mode de paiement" set to "En Ligne par CB" as a new "thanks URL".
Calling form: http://form.jotformeu.com/form/43016419622348
Thanks for your help.
Can you provide more inform on what you mean when your say "- to enter the "no paypal account" screen by default"
Do you want your user to be able to place their credit card inform directly in your form without being directed to PayPal? If that is the case, PayPal Pro allows you to do that.

Thanks for the answer, I was trying to do it with paypal or paypal express.

It seems your requirement is to allow "Guest Checkout" option which will allow users to make payment through credit card if they do not have the PayPal account. Is that correct?
You will have to check if you have enabled the "Account Optional" in your PayPal account. This will ensure that when your user is redirected to paypal checkout page, they will see options to pay by their credit card instead of asking them to sign in to PayPal account. Please check the following URL for information on how to enable it in PayPal: https://www.paypal-community.com/t5/About-Business-Archive/Guest-checkout/td-p/425081#U489924
The PayPal checkout page should display you the option as displayed in the screenshot below:
Hope this helps.
Do get back to us if you have any questions.
The end point was how can i have the "Account Optional" open when coming from jotform instead of requiring customer to open/click the option when entering the page.
I tried to avoid it using Paypla Pro jotform plugin but it sounds as if jotform or paypal does not allow it for France as I am getting the following message:
Thanks for your help,
Thank you for that information. That error message is generated through PayPal. I would recommend getting in contact with them to see if there is another other option that would be available to you at your location.
Please feel free to contact us if you need further assistance.
