PayPal Payments Pro allows you to accept payments directly on your online order form, without redirecting away from the page. Users will enter their payment details in the form itself and credit card fields will be just regular fields in your form. To enable the PayPal Pro integration, follow the simple steps below:
1. Click New Form and start creating your payment form. You can use choice fields (single/multiple choice and dropdown lists) to display the products on sale or, even better, Product field.
To the left side panel, you will notice the Payments section. By using the search bar, you can quickly search for PayPal Pro.
2. After adding PayPal Pro on your form, you will notice a couple of changes: the PayPal Pro payment processor has a tag near its name & the settings panel opens up to the right side of the page.
3. In order to set up PayPal Pro integration, you have to provide your PayPal Pro API Username, API Password, and API Signature. Tick the option Use recurrent payment if you want to charge your clients on a regular basis after submission. You can even add the number of cycles the billing occurs.
3. Enable the payment integration by clicking on Enable button. By enabling PayPal Pro, you will notice a couple of changes on your form.
The PayPal Pro payment processor on the left side panel has an Enabled tag on it so you could easily scan which payment processor is enabled.
Another change is that on your form it will be displayed an Order summary. Here will appear all the products your respondents select on the form, together with the price per option, quantity and the total price. If you want to customize the order summary, all you have to do is click on it and the available settings appear on the right side panel.
Another change is related to the Submit button. Once your payment integration is enabled, the Submit button is changed to Continue to payment. Below it, we are displaying a disclaimer together with the PayPal logo so that respondents are aware they are proceeding to a payment.
Also, the accepted cards by the PayPal integration are visually displayed so that respondents know from the start what is the accepted payment method.
You can customize the action bar (everything that is related to the submit button, additional buttons, disclaimer, etc) by simply clicking on this area.
Here is further information that will help you use PayPal Pro as a payment processor.
Important Note: To test your PayPal integration with 123FormBuilder, you’ll need a sandbox account on PayPal. If you do not have one, go to https://www.sandbox.paypal.com to create one. Type in the credentials of your sandbox account in the PayPal Pro integration and tick the Use sandbox option from the bottom.
Note: You’ll need to make sure you have paid the monthly fee for your PayPal Payments Pro account. If the fee has not been paid, you won’t be able to use the PayPal Pro payment processor on your order form in 123FormBuilder.
