    How to enabel Paypal payment authorization only

    Asked by fivepminus on February 17, 2015 at 05:54 PM



    I have created a form with a payment option through PayPal.  I didn't see the ability for the person filling out the form to be able to cancel when it gets to the payment option of PayPal.  Usually there is a "cancel and return to ___" statement at the bottom of the PayPal form.


    Anyway to add this? or anyway to submit a response but not a payment?  I have families who will send in an alternate payment instead of going through PayPal.
