PayPal is the most popular online payment service in use today. It enables you to pay, send money, and accept payments.


JotForm provides Paypal Payment Tools. This enables users to sell products and subscriptions, collect donations and custom amounts in their forms and gets paid through Paypal payment gateway. 

Integrating your form with Paypal is easy, here are the steps:

1. Add a Paypal Payment Tool to your form it's under Payment Fields.

Note: If you have a Personal PayPal account, you can use Paypal (standard). If you have a Business or Premier Paypal account, you can use Paypal Express or Paypal Pro.


2. In the Payment Wizard, enter your Paypal credentials. 

If you are using Paypal (standard), you will have to enter your Paypal email. Otherwise, if you are using Paypal Express or Paypal Pro, you will have to enter your Paypal API Credentials. You can see the difference below:

I have PayPal Pro and was able to set it up, but even though I have Pro, it still takes me to a new PayPal page (like regular PayPal). What am I doing wrong?

Hello. I have a Product Order form that requires information and agreement to terms and conditions. I placed the button but I dont see a clickable button underneath. DO I add a SUBMIT button so it will accept the information and proceed to Paypal?

THanks for your help.
