    Please do note that this option is only available for people in US and not for any other country in the world.

    It is also not one of the options that can be used on the form builder, but even if it was, as mentioned above, the payments can only be received if the PayPal account is opened by someone in US.

    If you wish, we could raise this as a possible integration to be implemented, but doing this does not mean that it will be integrated at any specific time - if at all.

    OK, thank you for your confirmation.

    I have raised this to our developers, but as mentioned, this does not mean that the feature will be available, but if it does and when it does, you will be updated about it through this thread.

    In the meantime, I do want to mention that we have:

    PayPal
    PayPal Express
    PayPal Pro

    Maybe one of these would work for you until the PayPal Payments Advanced is implemented.

    Thank you Ben from all of us!

    I need my customers to pay with their credit cards without ever leaving my website. I have canadian and us accounts on paypal, both Standard Paypal at the moment. Would Express Paypal allow me to do what needs to be done?

    Actually PayPal Pro will allow you to accept payments on your forms / website, without leaving it.

    You can see more about this here: Difference Between PayPal & PayPal Pro

    PayPal Express is a variant of the PayPal Standard, but allows the users to use some data without entering it on the form, so it is a bit faster - hence Express.

    So what you need is PayPal Pro.

    Do check it out and let us know if you have any questions and we would be happy to assist.
