Adobe has had a SaaS-based forms creation service called FormsCentral for the past year. Today they announced the ability to link your forms with PayPal for automatically collecting money from your respondents. It is a great move.


Like the rest of the tool, you don't need to know any HTML or really any programming to create your forms. You will need to upgrade to the paid FormsCentral account (starting at $15 a month) and have either a Premier or Business PayPal account where the funds will be deposited into. You just fill out the various forms to create your own, and there are more than a dozen different templates to help you get started. There is even a screencast video that shows you the process.

You can also have your correspondents pay you via credit cards too if they don't have a PayPal account of their own.
