    Which Paypal option does JotForm recommend?

    Asked by elimfellowship on May 23, 2016 at 02:53 PM

    There are three PayPal options with JotForm.

    1.       PayPal Payments Standard

    2.       PayPal Express Checkout

    3.       PayPal Payments Pro


    Which Paypal option do you recommend for use?  

    We currently use Paypal payments standard but are experiencing a number of processing failures. I see some articles about the difference between Standard and Pro but nothing about Express being compared to them. Or which one Jotform thinks is better to use.

    Actually this is all up to you which one you would use. It is also depending on which one you can have. For example, PayPal Pro is available to only few countries in the world, US, Canada and UK.

    PayPal Standard is available to everyone, so this is the easiest way to start your business, while if you want more features, and can not get Pro, Express is the next best thing.

    It is good to note that you need to contact PayPal for both Pro and Express to see if you can use them and for the additional charges that come with each.

    In terms of which one is the best, I guess you could say that it starts with Standard, Express is better and Pro is the best you could use.

    In terms of JotForm to PayPal - all are the "same".

    In regards to failures, can you tell us a bit more about the same Deb?
