    I see that you are using PayPal Pro for receiving payments. Unfortunately, Paypal Website Payments Pro will not work for countries other than the United Kingdom, United States, and Canada. You can check out this page from Paypal for more info: 

    Since your Paypal account is based in Italy, your form will not be able to accept payments. We apologize for this inconvenience but there is nothing else we can do here. It is up to Paypal to add other countries to this service.

    A workaround I  could suggest would be to use another payment method for your form such as the basic Paypal tool or the Paypal Express integration. Here's a guide that can help you set it up: Configuring PayPal Express Integration.
