I’m using your Contact Form 7 PayPal plugin, however I have a couple of questions/issues:

1) The form doesn’t seems handle a quantity of ‘0’. e.g. If I am selling tickets to an event and there are two types of ticket, one for abults and one for children. It seems you have to order at least 1 of each type or you get an error on the PayPal page, naturally that won’t be the case for many of the forms users when they buy tickets.

2) If the form has an error (e.g. a missed required field) it goes to the PayPal page without giving the users the opportunity to fix the missing data, meaning the contact form doesn’t send.

How do I rectify these issues?



Hi there,

1) When you have multiple products you should work with the _X (x = number) fields like this:

<--! Item 1 -->
<input type="hidden" name="item_name_1" value="Product 1">
<input type="hidden" name="item_number_1" value="999">
<input type="hidden" name="amount_1" value="10">
Quantity: <br />[number quantity_1 min:0 class:fw max:10]

<--! Item 2 -->
<input type="hidden" name="item_name_2" value="Product 2">
<input type="hidden" name="item_number_3" value="222">
<input type="hidden" name="amount_2" value="10">
Quantity: <br />[number quantity_2 min:0 class:fw max:10 ]

<--! Item 3 -->
<input type="hidden" name="item_name_3" value="Product 3">
<input type="hidden" name="item_number_3" value="333">
<input type="hidden" name="amount_3" value="10">

2) Normally the default CF7 form check is performed. Are you on the update to date version?

Best regards

Hi, thank you for getting back to me. I think I’ve sorted the quantity issue, although it they happen to choose ‘0’ as a quantity it still breaks when going to the PayPal screen (this also happens on your demo version). But now I’m no longer defaulting to ‘0’ quantity so it’s less likely to happen. The issue with the page redirecting to PayPal when their are validation errors is still happening and I have the latest versions of the plugins (you can see my development site at

Okay thanks :)

Could you please send WP-Admin & FTP-Credentials to support@db-dzine.com? Then we can debug your problem and improve our plugin ;)

Hi there,

what do you mean with price detail in backend? On what page, what information is missing? In the transaction records?

Hi, I want to know how i can send contact form after succeful payement only. Think you

Hi there,

unfortunately this is not possible, because we can not store the CF7 contact form data so long until a successfull payment return has come back.

Best regards

Hi I bought your plugin not long ago, last week or something. I did a literal copy + paste of your form and added our business’s paypal details (not clients as I needed to test it).

When I click the button it doesn’t redirect me to paypal and it says message was sent successfully. The emails are sent without even making payment, I unchecked the box for “send mail” so something isn’t right with your plugin.

It also takes more than 30 seconds to send the message and your online documentation goes to a 404 page.

If these issues can’t be solved, how do I go about requesting a refund?

Hi there,

we just redesigned our landingpage, demo and documentation. You can find everything here: https://plugins.db-dzine.com/wordpress-cf7-paypal/

May you send us WP-Admin credentials and a URL to your form to support@db-dzine.com, so that we can debug this issue?

Best regards :)

can i check more demo ? i want to use it for tour booking.

Hi there,

Hello, your plugin is perfect but it is not complete for my needs.

I have several complementary development requests to ask you.

1. Can you develop the same plugin for Stripe?

2. Can you send the Contact form 7 email only if the payment has been validated?

3. Can you provide me a shortcode to be inserted in the subject of the email of Contact form 7 with the ID of the Paypal transaction?

4. Can you add the Paypal transaction ID in the Flamingo Wordpress module?

How much would it cost me for all of these benefits?

Thank you in advance for your answer.

Don’t hesitate to contact me privately if needed.

I accidentally purchased the PayPal integration vs the Stripe integration.

I went and purchased the Stripe one, but would like to explore a refund for the incorrect purchase.

How can I go about requesting this?

Thanks! Mike

Hi there,

you need to contact Envato support directly.

I need all ONLY paid through paypal registrations to be stored in the WP DB. Is this possible with this plugin?

We also have a Database storing all the details, but unfortunately not a table view right now.

Is this a database that comes with the plugin? Can you export from this database as a CSV?

The database is inside the plugin. If you have phpMyAdmin you could access it and export a CSV.

Can I define product drop down option or user manual amount entry?

Thank you, Nevio

Hi there,

yes of course. You need to make sure the select field has the name “item_name_1” and you need to have a hidden field with the referencing cost of the product amount_1 (via jQuery for example).

If you need help setting it up, please contact us at support@db-dzine.com

When I go to my profile -> downloads I have list of all my purchases and option to download all files and documentation. When I try to download all files (plugin) now it says it contain virus. When I try to download plugin directly from https://codecanyon.net/item/contact-form-7-paypal-integration/18893258 same thing happens. First reported as “we are having trouble finding that site”, and now it allows download and when content is downloaded in zip it says it contains viruses?

Since it doesn’t allow me to upload files here, I have uploaded screenshot to imgBB https://ibb.co/gxaF2c This is what I receive after downloading file.

Then this is a problem on your PC. Turn off your virus tool and try again.

Instead of forwarding to PAYPAL the page is reloading itself incduign an # Like: www.domain.de/booking/#wpcf7-f1021-o1

Whats the Problem here?

Hi there,

can you please send a URL to support@db-dzine.com where we can see the problem?


I have recently purchased this plugin. It was working fine, but now it often, not all the time fails with the following message:

Things don’t appear to be working at the moment. Please try again later.

The paypal url looks like this: https://www.paypal.com/webapps/shoppingcart/error?flowlogging_id=4bb019ae1db69&code=BAD_INPUT_ERROR&mfid=1520263170612_4bb019ae1db69

My form looks like this:

[text* first_name placeholder “First Name”]

[text* email placeholder “Email”]

<input type=”hidden” name=”item_name_1” value=”WPMZ”> <input type=”hidden” name=”amount_1” value=”87”> [recaptcha] [paypal return:https://www.wpmobilezoom.com/payment-complete/ class:fw “ORDER NOW”]

You will be redirected to PayPal for payment. If you don’t have a PayPal account you can pay with a credit card.

Thank you.

Hi there,

please contact paypal tech support to get their error info: https://www.paypal.com/us/selfhelp/article/our-tech-support-content-has-moved!-ts2171/5?channel=MTS

Hi there.

I am looking at a CF7 solution for a problem I have. What I want is to have a form that has 2 submission methods. 1 – PayPal and 2 – Invoice.

So if I choose PayPal the submit button sends me on to PayPal but if I choose Invoice, I want the form to submit as standard.

Is this possible with this plugin?

Hi there,

yes this is possible – see our demo.

Does it work in multisite?

Yes sure

I obtain an error in PayPal checkout

Can i post some screenshot and code?

Hmm please try contacting PayPal directly.

I tried to add a subscription payment adding the code suggested by paypal but I got an “error 400” can you please help me?

I have added the following fields to my form:

<!- Specify a Subscribe button. -> <input type=”hidden” name=”cmd” value=”_xclick-subscriptions”> <!- Identify the subscription. -> <input type=”hidden” name=”item_name” value=”Alice’s Weekly Digest”> <input type=”hidden” name=”item_number” value=”DIG Weekly”>

<!- Set the terms of the regular subscription. -> <input type=”hidden” name=”currency_code” value=”EUR”> <input type=”hidden” name=”a3” value=”5.00”> <input type=”hidden” name=”p3” value=”1”> <input type=”hidden” name=”t3” value=”M”>

<!- Set recurring payments until canceled. -> <input type=”hidden” name=”src” value=”1”>

Thank you, Andrea

Ok I understand, but I bought your plugin because you replied to a comment, about 1 year ago, that it works also with subscriptions (please see https://codecanyon.net/comments/16094179 ). Please remove that comment before other people do my same mistake.

As I can’t use the plugin as expected, can you please give me a refound?


you need to make the request here on codecanyon.
