    How can I create a form that is submitted upon completion of Paypal "Buy Now?"

    Asked by Lulu  on January 30, 2016 at 03:53 PM

    Hi there,

    A client of mine is looking for an event registration form with ability to pay (but not using PayPal Pro). At the end of the form, I'd love to be able to include a "Pay Now" button which, not only takes the site visitor to Paypal checkout, but ALSO submits the form. Is this possible?

    Thank you for your help!

    Yes that's possible with JotForm. You can use the "Paypal" payment tool, this is the Paypal Standard which redirects to Paypal checkout page once the form is submitted. 

    So basically, just add the Paypal tool to your form. This will open up the payment wizard where you need to enter your Paypal information, create your products, taxes/shipping/coupons and etc. So when you save and preview you form, and hit the submit button, it will redirect you to the Paypal checkout page for the payment.

    If you need further assistance, let us know.
