How to Integrate Form with PayPal Personal

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 them is the PayPal Payments Standard a.k.a PayPal Personal. Just like any other payment tool, this enables you to sell products and subscriptions, collect donations, and custom amounts in their forms and get paid through PayPal Payment Standard gateway.

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

1. In the Payments tab, search and add PayPal Personal:

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 (User Defined 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 button.

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 Personal.

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.

If you also want to test your PayPal payment form, check out this guide How To Test PayPal Payment Form.

    How do you disable the BACK button. If they click SUBMIT and it takes them to Paypal to pay and then click the BACK button instead. The payment is NOT processed but the form is cleared and submitted (ordered) without a payment. PLEASE HELP!

  • McFarlanePromotions

    Can you please tell us how to integrate PayPal for a user defined amount? When I do that, no "Submit" button comes up, so there's nothing more than the client can do. Any help would be appreciated.

    I need a form that will first gather and send me the contact information of a visitor who requests an information brochure pdf about our digital service. After they read the information brochure pdf in greater detail, about our service, then if they like they can order this digital product through PayPal. I would like a form that would facilitate the entire process. Do you have a form that could incorporate all of these steps?

  • Mr TESOL


    I have a dine in restaurant website client who wants to list specific dishes on their website and allow people to select a time and date (reservation) on the website in order to have that specific (prepaid)meal at the restaurant as well as pay for it on the website, before coming to the restaurant. Would JotForm be an option for me?



    We want to use Paypal with app (Apple and android).
    However, Paypal requires setting up with the paypal button. Myparishapp links directly to the payment processor through URL. Can your company provide this service using program?

  • Shannon Berry

    Nice writing but not enough. Try to make it more informative and bigger

  • eatsprout

    I have the integration set up completely except one glitch... once the checkout through paypal is complete it tries to redirect to my website and I don't want this to happen. I need the redirect to be something specific, is that possible?

  • AccorrusIT


    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

  • Gabriela Schechter

    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?

  • cmcveigh

    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.

  • mkapoosta

    where is the "payment wizard"??

  • 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,

  • Lronaghan

    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.

  • rideout

  • Acappellakentuckiana

    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!
