    Post and paypal

    Asked by vuggevisen on August 31, 2010 at 01:25 AM

    Hi

    I have 2 forms where I try to collect post data. I have setted the "thank you" URL to my custom URL for both and enabled form data. 

    On one of the forms it works perfectlty and on the other where I am using paypal it just keeps waitning for an answer after the payment succeded. Do you have any ideas?

    it seems like paypal only accepts .html pages? I can make it work using html, but then I can't access the post data?

    My guess is that the Thank You URL was incorrect when you tested this. If you can put back the one that kept waiting and let me know the URL of the form, I can check it for you.

    You can se the error on this page:

     

    http://www.jotform.com/form/2444137248

    You have to complete the payment to see it.

    The thank you url is setted to: 

    http://orders.vuggevisen.dk/test.php

    it works if you change it to (without post data):

    http://orders.vuggevisen.dk/test.html

    It was trying to redirect to "orders.vuggevisen.dk/test.php"

    I changed that to "http://orders.vuggevisen.dk/test.php". It should work now.

    Yes, you are right. Send Post Data feature on PayPal results pages is not working.

    I made a test and found the bug. We will work on this and get back to you.
