    You might want  to check our "Field Prepopulator" app which should help you generate the URL of your form with data pre-populated.

    Once you generate the URL with data pre-filled, you can then replace the values with the field names of the form from where you will redirect your user to this form.

    Let us know if you have more questions, we will be glad to assist you.

    Hello Georges,

    On behalf of my colleague, you are welcome.

    I am not sure if I have understood your question related to PayPal. I would suggest you to explain your question a bit more in detail and we will surely help you.

    Please be noted that we would like to keep one question per thread. You should always create a new thread for all your unrelated question.

    Thank you!

    Hi,

    To be more explicit regarding my Paypal question, I've got part of the answer from you support that is "use Payppal Pro widget".

    Now I am back to the last part of my original question using Paypal Pro, if the user choose the "Credit Card" payement option instead of Paypal how can I get the Invoice fileds such as Lastname, First name, adress ... prepopulated with the data entered in the previous step of the form?

    Thanks for your continuing support.

    Regards,

    Georges

    Hi Georges,

    May I know if you are if what you meant is that you would like to prepopulate form2 using the data from form1? In this case, you would like to prepopulate specific fields of the Payment Method specific to "Credit Card" fields?

    This would help us further to see how your forms flow to each other. I would like to suggest to see the guides we have below:

    http://www.jotform.com/help/71-Prepopulating-fields-to-your-JotForm-via-URL-parameters 

     

    I hope this helps. Let us know if you need further assistance on this.

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    It did help a lot, so I've been able to make progress I wanted to hand over 4 variables to the Paypal Pro invoice data but so far I've only been able to pass 2 variables (first name and last name).

    I checked that my ZipCode and Country variable names of the original form where correct but when calling the Paypal form these 2 variablles are empty.

    Do you have any clue ?

    Here is the extra string after the called URL:

    ?inscriptionRonde[cc_firstName]={prenom}&inscriptionRonde[cc_lastName]={nom}&inscriptionRonde[postal]={adresse7[postal]}&inscriptionRonde[country]={adresse7[country]}

    My original form is http://form.jotformeu.com/form/43016419622348

    Thanks for your help,

    Georges

    You will need to correct the tags a bit, try the following format:

    http://www.jotformeu.com/form/43115732308347?inscriptionRonde[cc_firstName]={prenom}&inscriptionRonde[cc_lastName]={nom}&inscriptionRonde[postal]={adresse7:postal}&inscriptionRonde[country]={adresse7:country}

    If you need auto-redirect to the second form, use the pre-population URL as the form Thank You Custom URL.

    Thank you.
