    Is it possible to override the thank you page wizard?

    Asked by montsho on November 24, 2010 at 05:40 PM

    I've created and html button that when clicked will take you to an auto billing sign up through paypal.  The button is attached to a form script NOT A LINK:

    <form action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" enctype="application/x-www-form-urlencoded" method="post"><input name="cmd" type="hidden" value="_s-xclick" /> <input name="hosted_button_id" type="hidden" value="SBYUNKVHCPX9C" />
    <table>
    <tbody>
    </tbody>
    </table>
    <table>
    <tbody>
    </tbody>
    </table>
    <table>
    <tbody>
    <tr>
    <td align="center"><em></em></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td><input alt="PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online!" name="submit" src="http://www.shomofit.com/images/sign me up.png" type="image" /></td>
    </tr>
    </tbody>
    </table>
    <img src="https://www.paypal.com/en_US/i/scr/pixel.gif" border="0" alt="" width="1" height="1" /> </form>

    Everything works fine but when the button is clicked the thank you page wizard takes over AND I DON'T WANT IT TO.  I want my customers to be able to go to the paypal form...

    I don't understand your question. Can you post a link to the page you have the form?

    ok, paypal gives the option of having automatic bill pay for customers.  This means, the customer gives all their billing info to the merchant (that's me) so whenever I'm ready to bill them I can.  basically their credit card info is in my database.  they may not use my service until 4 weeks from now, but as soon as they do, I can instantly charge them because I have their billing info already store.  Now, the code for this button is really a form script.  that's what i pasted above.  it's not a direct link to a url.  they don't give any url link for this type of button.  I know that i can set up my thank you page wizard to go to a url link. but this is not a link, its the actual script i pasted above.  i made a button out of an image and i linked the script code to the image.  so when my clients click the button they should be able to go right to the paypal auto billing set up.  BUT THE JOT FORM WILL NOT LET THAT HAPPEN.  IT KEEPS OVERRIDING MY BUTTON WITH THE THANK YOU PAGE WIZARD.

    here's the form:

    <script src="http://www.jotform.com/jsform/3270654207"></script>

    thanks for helping.  i didn't expect a response on thanksgiving.  you rock.

    I'm not sure how you are integrating this PayPal button with JotForm. Can you post the URL of the page?

    Could you make a custom thank you message that includes the button script?

    No, for that you should create a web page on your site, put the code on that page and then use that as the Thank You URL.
