    My jotform username is: dwstory

    If you view my account you will see I have credit card and check payments, I simply need the form to be secure when they submit thier info, we will process cards at our office. However I tried to use the "purchase order" under payment tools but it does not encript the form. Please Help.

    Hi and thanks for contacting us.

    It is very easy. Use a secure URL for your form:

    1. Obtain the unique 11 digit JotForm ID of your form
     - There is a number of ways you can obtain this ID, one way is to Click on the Preview icon as shown below: 

    The JotForm ID of this form is 12972052359

    2. Append that number to the end of

    This makes the secure URL of my form

    That is all. Use that URL and your form will now communicate securely with SSL.

    Note: If you don't have a secure webserver (i.e your website's address doesn't start with https) and you embed a secure form into the webpage, the end user's web browser will report the connection as not being entirely secure. In these instances, it may be better to provide a link to the form using its JotForm URL. 


    To automatically update all the different types of embed code to use a Secure form URL

    Go to Setup & Embed > Embed Form
    Choose Source then select the "Secure Form" check box

    All the various embedding options will now be updated ready for use on your website.
    Hope this helps. Alessandro
