    When i have an incomplete form submission, does that mean someone tried to send the form without paying or does it mean that they have paid and their payment is pending?  If I select to complete form submission, how does that impact my receipt of their payment?

    Since each submission on a Paypal-integrated form is initially considered an Incomplete Payment entry, An IPN(Instant Payment Notification) message is used by JotForm to determine whether a submission's payment is successful or not. If successful, the submission is marked as completed and the post submission actions are then performed, like sending notifications and autoresponders and/or sending the submission data to WebHook URLs (if there is any). If the payment is not successful, the submission remains Incomplete.
