    Are you looking to receive submissions in CSV? Unfortunately, we do not have that function. You can only manually download submission as CSV files from your account: https://www.jotform.com/help/73-How-to-Download-Form-Submissions-as-Excel-CSV-PDF 

    Also, a better option would be generating a CSV report to avoid downloading submissions one by one, here is how to create the report: https://www.jotform.com/help/103-How-to-Create-a-CSV-Report

    There must be a way to get the responses ``on submit` via URL.

    With the API or PHP

    You can send submissions data via Post method, or send them directly to your own database using PHP:

    https://www.jotform.com/help/126-How-to-send-Submissions-to-Your-MySQL-Database-Using-PHP 

    However, this goes beyond our support scope. You will need to hire a developer, so he can write the proper code to convert the received data, that comes in the array, into a CSV file.
