My forms software was Adobe FormsCentral. It was perfect in every way.
Jotform is not but could be if you can help me with some basics.
With form Central I was able to add columns – for example “Paid”
My total list of submissions were always “Live.” When a new submission came in, my list was automatically update on viewable online.
With jotform I must click on “submission” to see my new submissions. There doesn’t seem to be the capability of adding a column so I can see who has paid or not for my services. The only way to see my entire list of submissions is to click each time at which point I receive the Jotform submission report with not customer additions. Sso it seems it is not possible to maintain user input from one day to the next.
This is a biggy for me. Help or I need to find another software.

How about adding a field in your form then hide it (right click the field then hide field) so it is not visible in the live form only in submissions report? I think this is the only way to add a column in the submissions grid. You can use the hidden column as the payment status, e.g. marking the submission as paid or not.
This guide will help http://www.jotform.com/help/194-How-to-Add-a-Submissions-Status.
If you want to just select paid or not paid options, you can use a dropdown field instead of a textbox field then hide it.
Alternatively, you can also integrate your form with Google Spreadsheet. Then on the sheet, you can add the column you want.
Hope this helps!
