    Hi, I am currently building a site to collect entry fees via PayPal integration, and then after the visitor has paid, I need them to be redirected to another form to enter their details and upload images.

     

    I think I am on the right track, by building two separate forms, one for the payment (Form1), and another for the upload of images, (Form2).

     

    My question is, when the visitor uses the PayPal button to make payment on the first form, will he be taken to the PayPal website to complete their transaction, and then redirected back to the upload Form 2? 

    Thank you,

    Hi Steven,

    I believe that is correct. When a user successfully made a payment using Paypal, they will need to click a button or link that will return them to the merchant's website, this is needed as the user is on the domain of Paypal, from there they will be automatically redirected to your custom Thank You page URL that you have setup.

    Please do try it first in your end to see if it works as you have expected.

    Thank you.
