    How do Payment forms work?

    Asked by karina gordin on November 08, 2015 at 12:17 PM

    How do the payment forms work and where will the payment be sent to? And how will the payment be transferred? Are your forms automatically linked to, say, paypal, and other services?

    Let's say you have set up a PayPal payment tool on your form. Once the submit button on your form is clicked the submitter will be redirected to PayPal's payment page. There the submitter will process the payment by logging in and verifying his PayPal account. The payment will be sent to the account indicated in the PayPal field during set up once the payment is successfully processed. 

    Forms are linked to payment tools such us PayPal through integration.

    I hope this answers your question. Should you have any other question, please feel free to let us know and we will be glad to help you.
