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. https://form.jotformpro.com/72442455966970
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.

    Hello,

    I would like use Paypal as my payment system, and was wonder if there is a function that can set for the duration the 1st payment will cover.

    Basically we are trying to sell a subscription based product for $5000/year. However, for the 1st 2 year, we are going to give a discount of $8000/2years.

    However on my form, if I put the subscription period as Annually ($5000), and the 1st payment amount is $8000, my client will be charged $5000 on the 2nd year when my intention was for my client to be charged $5000 annually from the 3rd year and onwards.

    Is there any way to do that? Thanks

    I am still not sure.. I love the form and how easy is to create and integrate.

    I do have a customer that offers camps. She wants people to send her the forms signed and also at the same time on the same form have the option to pay paypal. So basically once you fill out a form it sends an email with notification and maybe on that autoresponder or thank you page add the paypal option? Suggestions?

    I did what you advised, and I still have no idea if it works. First of all, the fields that David told me to create are still on the form and I can't get rid of them, plus now, there is the 'my products' section.
    The other problem is that after I fill out the form (when I publish it) there is no 'submit button' and nothing that takes it over to paypal. Any help will be appreciated.

  • Dolores Ballintyn

    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,
    Dolores

    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.

    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!

    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?
