    Is your term for the PayPal Pro the same as PayPal PayFlow Pro?

    I'm not sure about the terms that you are referring here. Please be noted that PayPal PayFlow Pro is currently not supported by JotForm. The terms of usage remains the same with any of the payment integrations using JotForm. With any payment integration on JotForm, we handover the transaction to the processor and redirects the page to the respective website for further processing. Any additional charges involved here are purely with the processor transaction charges or similar that you may need to check with them.

    Hope this iinformation helps. Please get back to us if you are referring to something different. We will be happy to help.

    Hi Kiran,
    We currently use PayPal PayFlow Pro for E-Commerce, so I was asking if that is the same as PayPal Pro. I think this may just be a difference in terminology, but I want to be sure. Are you sure they are not the same? I guess that I could test the payment gateway with our current credentials to see if it works. Otherwise, I could check with PayPal.
    Thanks,

    According to the pages on PayPal, it seems like the PayFlow is a completely separate payment gateway then the Paypal Pro and PayPal Express that we offer.

    It might be best to ask PayPal if you can receive payments on your PayFlow through the regular PayPal Pro or PayPal Express that we support, but it may not be possible. I would recommend that you please take a look at our available PayPal options and see if you can use one of them instead.

    We also support payments over Stripe and Authorize.net, among others. I hope this helps.

    Hi Boris,
    I did speak with PayPal support, and we use PayFlow Pro because that allows the payments to be processed by our preferred bank. The standard PayPal and PayPal Pro gateway are processed by PayPal. Are there any plans for JotForms to add PayFlow Pro as an option?
    Thanks,
    Bob

    We have sent an additional PayPal Payflow integration request ticket to our Development Team. However, we cannot provide any ETA for when it will be implemented.

    We will update this thread if we have any updates.

    You will,  definitely, be informed via this thread if there are any updates from our developers regarding the integration of PayPal PayFlow. But then, like what my colleague, Mike, have mentioned, we cannot provide any ETA to when it will be implemented. Thank you.
