PayPal payment integration

  

123ContactFrom makes it very easy to process credit cards with your web forms. Whether you are selling products, approving subscriptions or receiving donations, your forms will collect payments simply and safely. Set up the PayPal payment integration for your order form and start getting paid. Let’s see how to do it.

Payment integration can be enabled in your Settings -> Payments section. You’ve got there three sections: Merchant Setup, Assign Prices and Notifications. Start with the first one and tick Accept payments via PayPal to enable PayPal integration. Below, there are other payment processors that you may integrate with your web forms – Google Checkout and Authorize.net. For now we’ll stick to PayPal payments.

Payment Integration

When you tick the Paypal integration option, you’ll see two new fields – Email and Language. Provide your PayPal seller email address and choose your preferred language. Right below the available payment processors, there is a dropdown list where you can set the currency your web form will accept. Further, you are asked to specify whether payment is made one time only or whether it is recurrent. Press Save.

Moving on to the Assign Prices section, here you can specify the amount that will be charged for orders. If you’re selling one product or service at an invariable price, then you only need to specify its price in the Fixed amount box. But you can also assign different prices to fields and charge buyers based on their chosen products. Select the form field that lists products – most likely, it will be a dropdown list, a radio buttons field or a checkbox field – and press Add. Then type item prices in the boxes that appear below. You can also set up advanced calculations for your payment integrated form. Taxes and special discounts can be applied this way. We’ll deal with advanced calculations in a future post.

The third section for setting up payment integration – Notifications – allows you to create and customize a payment confirmation message. By ticking the first box – Send notification after payment is completed – you establish whether buyers will receive a confirmation notification for their order. You can also decide when the notification is delivered: as soon as the form is submitted or only after the payment is completed.

Payment Notification Message

Press the Customize message button to create a payment confirmation message. A customization lightbox will show up, in which you are requested to type the subject and the body of the payment confirmation email that will be sent to buyers. Press Save when you’re done.

Finally, return to the main Payments section and tick Enable payments for this form at section top. Your web form with PayPal integration is now ready to receive payments!

    Hi,

    Is there any way in the advanced calculation formula of having more than one multiplication? For example T-Shirt x Quantity x Size?
