Gravity Forms PayPal Payments Pro v1.0 Beta 2 Released

Gravity Forms PayPal Payments Pro Add-On v1.0 Beta 2 is now available. PayPal Payments Pro has been one of the most highly requested payment add-ons and we are pleased to announce it is one step closer to a final release.

While this is considered a beta release, it is considered stable and is actively being used in production by Gravity Forms users. We will not be releasing it as a final 1.0 public release until Express Checkout functionality has been added, the current beta build only supports Direct Payments.

The Gravity Forms PayPal Payments Pro Add-On allows you to quickly integrate payment forms with PayPal Payments Pro to capture credit card payments along with form field data when forms are submitted.

This allows you to easily create order forms and capture payments right from within your site and without sending them to a 3rd party service such as PayPal's standard payment solution to complete the transaction.

Please be sure to read the System Requirements below before getting started.


  • Seamless Integration - Automatically capture credit card payments with PayPal Payments Pro when a form is submitted.
  • Product and Service - Setup and sell simple products or services in just minutes with one time credit card payments.
  • Recurring Payments - Setup and configure PayPal Recurring Billing subscriptions.
  • WordPress Posts - Configure your form to both create a post and accept a payment. The post is only created if the payment is approved.
  • User Registration - Configure your form so that users created with the User Registration Add-On are only created after payment is approved.

What's New In Beta 2

  • Fixed issue with credit card field incorrectly failing validation on multi-page forms.
  • Fixed issue with products hidden by conditional logic being sent to PayPal.
  • Fixed issue with extra (blank) item being added to PayPal details.
  • Fixed issue with refund transactions not being processed by the IPN.

System Requirements

The Gravity Forms PayPal Pro Add-On requires Gravity Forms v1.6.3+, WordPress v3.3+ and a valid SSL Certificate installed and configured on your WordPress site.

Because of the secure nature of capturing credit card information you will also be required to purchase and install an SSL certificate on your web site. You will also need to configure your WordPress site to work properly with SSL.

Contact your web host if you need assistance purchasing and configuring an SSL certificate.

If you need assistance configuring your WordPress site to work with SSL we recommend the WordPress HTTPS (SSL) Plugin which you can find here.
