PayPal Express Checkout is now available for Jotform Forms


PayPal has deprecated PayPal Express payment method. However, you can still collect payments with other PayPal integrations, please visit our PayPal payment forms page to learn more.

PayPal is the most popular payment gateway on JotForm. We help our users process over 5 million dollars in transactions every month using PayPal. Today, we are excited to announce a new option for payment forms: PayPal Express Checkout.

Why should you prefer PayPal Express Checkout?

The best way to increase conversion rates is to make the checkout process as simple as possible. PayPal Express Checkout helps you with that. Instead of redirecting users to PayPal’s site, a small pop-up with a PayPal login form launches, the user completes the payment quickly and submits the form. Payment can now be done in a single step. Quick and easy for your users, and more revenue for you! 🙂

Note that for physical products, PayPal Express Checkout integration works like regular PayPal integration. The user is redirected to a PayPal payment page upon form submission. The pop-up method does not support shipping addresses. You can read more about it on PayPal Digital Goods Documentation. You will also need to enable “digitals goods” settings on your PayPal Profile.

Who should prefer PayPal Express Checkout?

If you are selling digital goods and you do not need a shipping address, Express Checkout will make things easier for your users.

Can I try a live demo?

PayPal Express Checkout does not have any additional costs. As always, PayPal’s rates are awesome: 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction.
