    How do I create a form and add a single product for purchase using PayPal.

    I created my form added the single product and a got a message that states:

    Since there is only one product this item will not be seen on the form. Run wizard to update payment details.

    Please explain.

    Please save it then preview your form.

    Notice any information about the product is not being shown since your customer won't need to make any choices.

    When they hit submit, it will initiate the purchase process utilizing the API integration with your chosen Payment Gateway.

    Due this, it is expected that you at least add some other elements that will explain what your customer is purchasing like utilizing Free Text (HTML) under Power Tools (on the left sidebar) for your product description.

    Also, as most of the time, your own web page(where you embed your JotForm-generated form) will have the product description, etc., JotForm simply functions as a quick way for you to add a purchase button relieving you of doing any scripting.

    Please let us know if you still need clarifications.

    Thank you for using JotForm.
