    You state that you are intergrated with PayPal, well, what about the other credit cards.  Does one
    have to have a PayPay account?  I have one, but those with Visa, MasterCard, etc., what about them?

    I want to create a method for customer can pay for there After-School Programs.  Right now I have not

    put it to form but I do need that option.

    Yes. You need a PayPal account to get money from your visitors. But your visitors don't need a PayPal account, just a credit card.

    Hope this helps.

    In addition to what javier24 has stated, you will need to have at least one account from any of the payment gateways available for JotForm's payment gateway integration.

    If you wish to receive credit card payments from people who do not have Paypal accounts, then the recommended payment gateways are Paypal Pro (also known as Paypal Website Payments Pro), and Authorize.net
