Paypal – DPRP is Disabled.

Paypal – DPRP is Disabled.

Let’s start from the beginning.
DPRP stands for DirectPayment Recurring Payments. It’s a module that enables you to have multiple payments, subscriptions and recurring payments with your shopping cart forms when using PayPal API integrated. For instance, we use PayPal with our favorite 3rd party form company, JotForm (www.jotform.com). Been using them for YEARS, if not just about a decade soon!

Despite the fact that it’s a feature that should be enabled automatically when you signed up for PayPal’s legacy “Website Payments Pro” (PayPal 3.0) OR when you signed up for a new “Payments Pro” account (PayPal 2.0)
(why is the newer one 2.0 and the older one 3.0 is BEYOND me)…. 

You MUST enable this feature. Calling into customer support was a crazy amount of loops with some very informed amazingly helpful sales and customer support reps and OTHERS were trying to read the internal information/FAQs board and couldn’t find the answer. Was a frustrating experience to say the least.


Paid Memberships Pro
Big shout out to Paid Memberships Pro for their 2012 post!

Log into your PayPal account

Follow this link to a legacy page you’ll never find in search or posted online or on PayPal.
It’s an old link from 2012 or so to add the Recurring Payments feature onto your account.

This page will have you go through a checkout form to add Recurring payments to your account.

Screenshot of the SIGN UP page – what you’ll see when you click the above link!!!!!

SCREENSHOT of what you’ll see AFTER you agree. This will effectively remove the DPRP is Disabled
message and enable you to get started in accepting RECURRING PAYMENTS. Worked within minutes.

Jotform Integration plug-in

Jotform Integration plug-in

Ever find your EMBED CODE disappears the next time you are in VISUAL MODE and you have to keep copying/pasting over & over again in TEXT?
Yep, me too.

SOLUTION: Install the free WordPress Jotform Plug=in! Works PERFECTLY!

INSTALLTION instructions
1. Install the plug-in via dashboard
2. Activate
3. Went to settings and JotForm Integration to enable “caching” of forms
4. Went to my respective pages & posts where I had the embed code….
and replaced with this SHORT CODE an open bracket “[” then “jotform id=XXXXXXXXXXXX” and then a close bracket “]”


Adding Forms to WordPress

Last Update: December 17, 2012 (COURTESY OF JOTFORM.COM)

Adding JotForm forms to a WordPress blog post is pretty easy.

1. On “Setup & Embed” tab on the toolbar, click on “Embed Form” button.

2. Click on “WordPress” option. 

3. Copy the code provided.

4. On a WordPress “Add New Page” page, click on “HTML” tab above post textarea.

5. Paste the code into the HTML area.

That’s all. Click on Preview on your WordPress to see your form.
Unfortunately, adding forms to WordPress.com is not possible sinceWordPress.com does not allow forms, javascripts or iframes.

Another alternative method specially for those who are having trouble with javascripts being stripped out. Simply install JotForm WP Plugin and then use  shortcode to anywhere on your WP page/post. You should replace XXXXXXXXXX with your Form ID in order for your form to work.
Here is a short step on how to install this plugin to your wordpress.
1. Login to your WordPress Admin Panel
2. Go to Plugins >> Add New >> then search ‘jotform
3. You should see 1 result (JotForm Integration), click on Install Now 
4. Activate your Plugin and then use where XXXXXXXXXX is your Form ID anywhere on your WP Post/Page. Example:

That’s all. Thanks to Patrick Rauland for this very useful JotForm WP Plugin.

If you have any questions, please post it below.
