    Regarding the Recurring payment option, as you could see in our guide https://www.jotform.com/help/166-How-to-Setup-a-Recurring-Payment-Option, it is possible to set that up with price and subscription period. 

    But I'm not sure I'm following you regarding the card swipers. could you please explain a bit more what would you like to achieve?

    Thank you!

    We want to be able to use credit card readers to swipe cards. Not all processors offer that service. From my research, Paypal and Square are the only ones, but I thought you might know...

    Hello Tracy,

    Thank you for additional information. Unfortunately, it is not possible to integrate our forms with card swipes. Card numbers need to be inputted manually.

    If we can be of any additional assistance please let us know.

    Thank you!
