    Alternative to Paypal to be used on our forms

    Asked by ryansrahomescom on April 11, 2016 at 01:20 PM

    Good Afternoon,


    Currently we use JotForm for our Rental Applications for our property management company. My company currently is using paypal and are looking for alternatives? Do you have any recommendations that works best in JotForm?

    This depends on what is the reason you are looking to step away from PayPal.

    For example, there is BrainTree integration - a PayPal child payment processor with lower fees. So if fees were the reason, while you liked PayPal, BrainTree is probably the best way to go with.

    You can see more about it here: JotForm Introduces Braintree Integration for Payment Forms

    Now, next to it is also our latest payment integration with Dwolla: JotForm Introduces Braintree Integration for Payment Forms

    If you would however like to have something that allows people to simply add their credit card and submit the form, that is quite simple using Stripe or Authorize.net integration.

    Now before changing to any (or any of the other payment processors in offer), I do suggest checking their fees and requirements that you might need to follow to see which one is the best option for you.

    A great thing about the setup is that once you remove PayPal from your forms and add the new one - 95% of the job is already done :)

    In most cases you would just need to change the email or add API keys and that would be it.

    Do of course let us know if you have any additional questions and we would be happy to assist with the same Colt.
