Step by step guide on PayPal integration
123ContactForm provides a very simple way to receive PayPal payments with your own PayPal payment form. You will be able to accept donations, orders and subscription fees in no time. Just follow the steps below to set up the PayPal integration for your form.
1. Create your payment form in the editor.
You can use choice fields (radio buttons, checkboxes, dropdown lists) to display the products on sale. If you wish to let submitters specify the amount they want to pay, use a Price field or a Number field (numeric validation is necessary and it’s predefined for these two fields). With 123ContactForm you can also create subscription forms for newsletters and other services.
If you want to enable recurrent payment on your PayPal payment form, tick the option Use recurrent payment. If you want to create a donation form, tick the second checkbox – payment represents a donation. Furthermore, the payment summary from your form is sent to PayPal’s order summary page. If you want to remove it from the page, simply uncheck the Detailed invoice box from the PayPal gateway box in Payments. The feature is not available if you use recurrent payment on the form.
Donation forms cannot be set as recurrent, therefore the two options are incompatible and cannot be used together.
3. Set the payment details – choose currency, assign prices and perform calculations taking into account taxes or discounts, if applied. You can opt for notifications to be sent to the submitter once the transaction is completed.
4. Don’t forget to tick Enable payments for this form.
5. You are set!
Once form users select their preferred products and/or services from the PayPal payment form and submit it, they are redirected to PayPal to perform the transaction. After that, they receive the confirmation message you have created.
Easy as 1-2-3!
If you want to send additional information to the transaction page, hit the Customize button and match form fields with PayPal fields in the lightbox that appears on screen. So if your buyers do not own a PayPal account, they will not need to type in their information again. The fields will be pre-filled with the data they submitted on the PayPal payment form.
