PayPal Pro FAQs
What is PayPal Pro?
PayPal Pro is a payment processing solution offered by PayPal, designed for businesses who want to accept credit card payments directly on their website/form, without the need for customers to be redirect to PayPal’s website.
How does PayPal Pro work?
First things first, you need to have a PayPal Pro account. If you already have a PayPal account, you just have to apply for PayPal Pro. Once respondents place an order by selecting PayPal as their payment method, they are presented with a checkout form where they can enter their payment details, including credit or debit card information. PayPal Pro then processes the payment and transfers the funds to your PayPal account.
Is PayPal Pro secure?
Yes, PayPal pro uses industry-standard encryption to protect sensitive data of both you as a form creator and your respondents during the payment process. In addition to encryption, PayPal Pro offers fraud protection and risk management tools to help you detect and prevent fraudulent transactions. It is fully PCI DSS compliant.
Is PayPal Pro international?
It is available in a number of countries around the world, such as US, UK, Canada, Austrialia, France, Germany, Italt, Spain, Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore. PayPal Pro also supports payments in multiple currencies.
However, the availability of PayPal Pro and the specific features it offers may vary depending on the country in which you are located.
What payment methods does PayPal Pro offer?
When integrated with your 123FormBuilder form, PayPal Pro supports credit and debit cards such as Maestro, Mastercard, Visa and American Express. Respondents can also choose to pay via their PayPal account.
Does PayPal Pro charge any transactional fees?

- Credit and debit cards: there is a transaction fee of around 2.9% to 3.5% of the transaction amount, plus a fixed fee (usually around $0.30 per transaction). The exact fee depends on the country you are located, the currency used for transaction and the type of credit card used by respondents.
- PayPal Accounts: PayPal Pro charges a transaction fee of around 2.9% to 3.5% of the transaction amount, plus a fixed fee (usually around $0.30 per transaction).
