Common Questions

Do I need PayPal Business, PayPal Pro, or PayPal Personal?

If you know that your PayPal account uses PayFlow or Website Payments Pro, you use PayPal Pro. Most people will use the PayPal Business integration. When you set up the integration, PayPal will let you know if you need to convert your personal account to a business account. You can use PayPal Personal to collect payments with credit cards and PayPal payments if you don’t want to convert to a business account.

How do I enable the PayPal Business integration?

Start by adding Order Form items to the form to make an order form. Then go to the Form Settings -> Payments page, click the PayPal Business button, and follow the instructions to enable the integration.

Can I set up subscriptions or recurring payments with PayPal?

Yes, the integration settings allow for recurring payments with options for the recurring amount, period, initial payment, and more.

Are payments made with the PayPal integration secure and PCI compliant?

Yes, PayPal payments occur at PayPal and the status is sent back to the form’s Results Table, so the customer’s payment information is never saved in the result. Therefore, PCI compliance is ensured.

Why does my Notification show that the payment is incomplete?

The Notifications send after the form is submitted and before the payment by default. If you want to delay the email until after the successful payment, you can enable the conditional logic on the Notification and set it to send after successful payment.

Can I issue refunds through Formsite?

No, all post-transaction actions must be handled through your account at PayPal.
