Setting Up Your First Order Form

October 18, 2021

Do you want to sell single/multiple items, collect subscriptions, or get donations online via an online form? You’ve come to the right place to do that. You can even collect payments from your Facebook Page.

For this example, we’re going to use PayPal Personal to illustrate how to create an order form with payment integration. However, this guide applies to all of our payment tools. Follow the video or text-instructions below to set up your first order form.

Setting up Your Payment Account and Products

  1. On the Form Builder click the Add Form Element button, go to the Payments tab, then select PayPal Personal.
