    Incomplete payments means that the customer might have aborted the payment process or there was something wrong with her/his credit card details and Paypal failed to process it successfully.

    If the payment is not successful, the submission remains Incomplete.  However, like the guide says , completing the submissions will NOT process payments. It will simply trigger the post-submission actions and dump the data to the submissions list, as if it was paid for (but not really).

    That's why enabling IPN is very important  for JotForm to mark your submissions as completed IF there was really a payment made.
