The Latest Paperform Updates - April 26, 2017

Read on to learn about new features, tutes, pipelines, use-cases, YT videos, announcements, deals, and more!

New Features

Business Support

As many of you know, PayPal is moving forward with its subsidiary Braintree with most of its services. It was a challenge for us to integrate PayPal Business Support with the Paperform platform, but we worked away at it secretly because we were dissapointed that Braintree wasn't yet available to many of our international customers.

So, we are now super happy to say that PayPal Business Support is directly available on the Paperform platform!

To use this feature, read the PF Help Centre article here.

Background Images

​Looking for some pizzazz for your web forms? Well, background images are now live! Add an image as the background of your form, and it will be automatically set to parallax (so you don't have to worry about it being the perfect size for your form and working across all devices).

An example can be found here.

To use this feature

  1. Simply go to Theme in the topbar when you're editing your form
  2. Upload your file (yes, GIFs are supported too!)

Hyperlinked Images

We're working at making your web forms even more clickable, and hyperlinked images are a great way to visually engage your audience. You might like to hyperlink to a part of your website, a detailed explanation of a product, or an image of the words 'contact me' to link a mailto address.

To use this feature

  1. Insert an image to your form
  2. Select the hyperlink icon at the top right of the image
  3. Insert your link
  4. Press enter or click out of the box
  5. Hover over the link to make sure it's correct, and just click the icon if you need to make any changes.

Paperform Feature Pipeline
