Are you looking to add a PayPal payment form to your WordPress site?
PayPal makes it super-easy to accept payments on your website. It is convenient, cost-effective, secure, and already used by millions of users around the world.
In this article, we’ll show you how to easily add a PayPal payment form in WordPress.
With that being said, let’s take a look at how to easily add a PayPal payment form in WordPress.
We recommend using WPForms because it lets you accept both PayPal and credit cards in the same form through their integration with credit card services like Stripe, Square, and Authorize.net.
Upon activation, you need to visit the WPForms » Settings page to enter your license key. You can find this information in your WPForms account area. Make sure you click the ‘Verify Key’ button to activate your license.
Next, go to the WPForms » Addons page. Here, you need to install the PayPal Standard addon. Simply find it in the list, and then click the ‘Install Addon’ button below it.
The addon will be automatically installed and activated for you.
Now, it’s time to create your payment form.
Creating a PayPal Payment Form in WordPress
Simply go to the WPForms » Add New page in your WordPress admin area to launch the form builder.
First, you need to provide a title for your form and then scroll down to the ‘Billing / Order Form’ template and click the ‘Use Template’ button.
For example, a Multiple Items list has been added to the form so your visitors can select the product or service they wish to pay for. Once you click on this field you will be able to customize the field’s label and the name and price of each item.
If you are only offering a single item, then you should delete the Multiple Items field by clicking the trash icon in the top right corner of the field.
Next, you can scroll down to the Single Item field and drag it onto your form.
You can click on this field to customize it.
For instance, you can change the field’s label, description, and price. The preview of your form on the right will be updated automatically.
If you are only offering a single item, then the Total field is unnecessary. Feel free to delete it.
Next, you need to go to Payments » PayPal Standard to set up PayPal. Simply check the ‘Enable PayPal Standard payments’ box.
After that, you need to fill in the other PayPal settings. If you wish to test your payment form, then you should select the ‘Test / Sandbox’ mode. This allows you to make dummy PayPal payments to make sure that the form is working correctly.
Don’t forget to change the Mode option back to ‘Production’ when you have finished testing.
You can also add a URL to redirect users who don’t complete the payment, and decide whether a shipping address and note are required.
Once you’re done, click the Save button to store your settings.
Your online PayPal payment form is now ready, and you can add it to any WordPress post or page on your website.
Adding Your PayPal Payment Form to Your Website
WPForm makes it super easy to add forms anywhere on your website.
Simply create a new post or page, or edit an existing one. Then, click on the plus (+) sign at the top and add a WPForms block in the WordPress editor.
After that, select your order form from the dropdown menu in the WPForms block.
Once you’re finished, you can save or publish your page and click on the preview button to see your form in action.
When your users fill in the form and click the ‘Submit’ button, the ‘Pay with PayPal’ screen will appear automatically so they can finalize the payment.
Congratulations, you’ve now created a PayPal payment form in WordPress.
