Clicking the Billing/Order Form box will bring you to the next window:
WPForms provides a form builder with a billing/order form template where you can edit any form field. You can also add new fields by simply drag and drop from the left column.
Step 3: Add Paypal Payment to Your form

For this, head over to Payments » PayPal Standard to enable payments for this form and click on the Enable PayPal Standard payments checkbox option.
Apart from enabling PayPal payment, here’re the additional settings to fill out:
- Enter your PayPal email address.
