    Asked by Campwannacombac on January 26, 2015 at 10:11 AM

    I have followed the steps on the form, bu when I act as a customer and tap the add to cart button, it takes me to my end of form "Thank You" statement.  How do I get it to link to PayPal so customers can pay?

    I believe this is because you are using a "Text" field for the Add Cart button. I would recommend that you include it in your Payment Method tool.

    I would recommend that you follow this guide that we have: http://www.jotform.com/help/275-How-to-pass-a-calculation-to-a-payment-field.

    Use different fields and pass it in your total payment field and let your users to pay in Paypal.

    I've cloned your form and made a sample edit using the guide above: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/50254874344962

    Let us know if this works.

    Thank you.
