    what's the difference between a submission, a payment submission and an SSL secured submission?

    Asked by lam10610 on August 23, 2012 at 07:40 AM

    My account shows that I've used 6 of 10 payment submissions (but it looks like 8 were already used).  What happens when I hit 10?  I'm using the free Jot Form service.

    Hi lam10610 and thanks for contacting us.

    Our free plan includes:

    Monthly Submission: 100 per month

    Monthly SSL Submissions: 10 per month

    Payments: 10 per month


    Monthly submissions mean that you can create all forms and your customer can send to you max 100 data per month

    SSL Submissions mean that your form will being protected from a ssl certificate and data sent trough this forms will being crypted. (reccomended for payment forms)


    Payment submissions mean that you can integrate our payment tools on your forms and you can receive 10 payments per month.


    If you exceed our monthly limits your account will be suspended and you can't receive other submissions until next month.

    Hope this satisfy your question.


    Thanks for use JotForm.
