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 :)

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,
