How to Integrate Form with Paypal (Standard)

PayPal is the most popular online payment service in use today. It enables you to pay, send money, and accept payments. Payments can be immediate or authorized for later capture.

JotForm provides Paypal Payment Tools, one of it is the Paypal Payments Standard or Paypal Standard. Just like any other payment tools, this enables you to sell products and subscriptions, collect donations and custom amounts in their forms and gets paid through Paypal Payment Standard gateway.

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

1. Add Paypal to your form, it's under Payments Tab.

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

With Paypal Standard, it only requires your Paypal email address.

3. Choose whether you want to sell products, sell subscriptions, collect custom amount or collect donations.

4. Assuming that you want to sell products, continue to the next page to create a product. It is pretty straightforward.

Click Create New Product

Then enter the product details. You can also add product options like quantity, size, color and etc.

5. Save the products you've created and you're good to go.

Here's an example form that uses Paypal Standard.
Feel free to submit it to test the form. It is in Sandbox mode.

Optional settings like Coupons, Shipping, Tax are also available. Click them to learn more about these options.

    Is there any cost for using Paypal on the part of the Jotform subscriber or is this cost added on PayPal's end to the person using it?

    Thank you,

    My PayPal form isn't working. The page just moves onto the next one in the sequence. It worked when I tested it earlier in the week. Please can you help? I've now sent out the links and it's a bit time sensitive.

    How do I remove Paypal from my account. I am trying to change my form so I can use PayPal Now, but it says I can only have one payment provider setup.

    If I add a field to my form like Phone #, is there a way to send it with the payment to paypal so it is captured on the payment?

    I don't know how to set up the "payment gateway" with PayPal. I have done a test donation, but it is still in the "incomplete payments" location on JotForm. I also received a notice from PayPal that I needed to do a confirmation email; I have written to them also because following their directions didn't work. Help!

    The PayPal Wizard is not working? Is there a problem with it. I have it on other forms and its works fine. Trying to create a new form and it does nothing. Please help.

  • msysing

    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.

    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?
