Adobe FormsCentral and PayPal Makes Dollars and Sense

Since the launch of Adobe FormsCentral just over a year ago, we’ve worked to expand the service with compelling options while staying true to one simple goal—making it as easy as possible to create, distribute, and collect information with features that help our customers improve their business results.

Today, with the addition of PayPal’s Express Checkout to FormsCentral, adding a payment field to forms is a snap.  Express Checkout accepts payments from a variety of popular choices:

  • PayPal
  • Credit Cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express)

Whether you are creating a new form or modifying an existing one, PayPal Express Checkout makes sense for multiple business and organizational uses.  For example, event organizers can collect registration information and let attendees pay for a conference or workshop sessions in one stop.


In addition:

    • Non-profit organizations can create donation forms to collect money from their supporters.
    • Freelancers or small businesses can create intake forms and collect a deposit or upfront payment from clients.
    • Clubs and associations can collect new or renewal membership fees.
    • Authors can sell and renew subscriptions to newsletters, articles, or other documents.
    • And much more!

Ease of use remains key—just like the other features in FormsCentral, you don’t need to know HTML or hire an expensive Web designer to create an online store to process a payment. FormsCentral and PayPal do all the work.  And, all of the data you collect via the form and purchase information is stored in a single, secure place.

So what do you need to get started?

Just upgrade or subscribe to a paid account of FormsCentral and use your PayPal Premier or Business Account. We provide a link to the PayPal website so you can create an account if you don’t already have one.

You can also watch this video to see how easy it is to add payment fields to your forms.
