    Submit data to a script file before redirecting to Paypal

    Asked by mikey213 on September 18, 2016 at 10:03 PM

    Sometimes when working with Paypal, you need to submit the form data to a processing script file so that it can insert the custom information into a database and then have the script redirect to Paypal checkout page. Is it possible to submit information to a script file before going to Paypal with Jotform? Currently, I am using the Paypal wizard (on a WP site) -- which means the form data will be directed to Paypal upon submission.

    Hello Mikey,

    It seems you have created multiple thread for the same question. You should only create one thread per question.

    One of my colleague is already answering it here: https://www.jotform.com/answers/935404-Submitting-form-to-a-script-file-before-going-to-Paypal-  

    Thank you!

    My apologies! That was not my intention. When I submitted my question(s), I did not receive any confirmation afterwards indicating that my question was successfully submitted (nor did it show up in my list of questions). It just sent me to a different page, so I assumed something went wrong and tried again.
