    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 https://secure.jotform.com/form/

    This makes the secure URL of my form https://secure.jotform.com/form/12972052359

    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
