    Hello phonefixers,

    I am not sure if I have understood your question correctly. Do you mean to say that you want to send data from your POS form to JotForm?

    Yes it is possible to achieve your requirement by taking advantage of our APIs. You may like to take a look at following API guide which should help you:  http://api.jotform.com/docs/

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you meant to ask something else.

    Thank you!

    Hello phonefixers,

    Please note that you cannot use the API programming inside your JotForm but with a little workaround it is possible to achieve your requirement. Here are the steps I would suggest you to follow:

    #1. Create you own webpage where you can read the form's post data. The following guide should help you how to post submission data to your own page:  https://www.jotform.com/help/51-How-to-Post-Submission-Data-to-Thank-You-Page

    #2. In the above page, you can write your own API programming code to call your API methods and pass the form's post data.

    #3. Redirect your users to your own page which you have created after the form is submitted. The following guide should help you how to redirect users:  https://www.jotform.com/help/38-Redirecting-Users-to-a-Different-Page

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
