Thanks for responding guys!

Mario, your link above gives me the following message:

There has been an error with your request.

So I'm not sure of what you were trying to show me.

I do not have SSL for my site yet, so that must be the problem. I'll work on that.

Assume I do have SSL and my PayPal button working correctly:

  • What if I have mutiple forms with PayPal buttons? What do I set the Return URL to?

  • Is there a way to setup a generic Return URL so that I do not have to change it every time I use a different form?

    [That is what I was trying to accomplish by creating a Thank You page outside of BreezingForms with a PDT script with my Identity Token] or...

  • Can I create a form just for the purpose of acting as a Return URL for PayPal that will work with all my published forms that have PayPal buttons? or...

  • Is there some other option I'm not aware of?

Hello EddyTippet,

Auto Return is turned off by default in PayPal.

What you need to do is this :

1 Log in to your PayPal account at www.paypal.com . The My Account Overview page appears.
2 Click the Profile subtab. The Profile Summary page appears.
3 Click the My Selling Tools link in the left column.
4 Under the Selling Online section, click the Update link in the row for Website Preferences. The Website Payment Preferences page appears
5 Under Auto Return for Website Payments, click the On radio button to enable Auto Return.
6 In the Return URL field, enter the URL to which you want your payers redirected after they complete their payments. NOTE: PayPal checks the Return URL that you enter. If the URL is not properly formatted or cannot be validated, PayPal will not activate Auto Return.
Scroll to the bottom of the page, and click the Save button.

Hope this helped you.

Thank you Mario!

In your reply, you said:

Is this the correct format?

https://YOURWEBSITE.COM/index.php?option=com_breezingforms&ff_name=FORMNAME&ff&ff_page=PAGE#
[The capitalized portions of the URL represent the website and form information of the designer]

If not, can you please advise.

Hey there,

I think that URL format you posted is good.
PayPal likes URL's like this :

Good Format : yoursite.com .....
Bad Format : www.yoursite.com ....
