    You can pre populate the first and last name of the Squareup Payment form.

    For example, based on the screenshot below, I passed the first name by getting it using the inspect element of web console(you have to remove the first portion of "_").

    So my url is: https://www.jotform.com/my_form_id?myProducts[cc_firstName]=John

    You need to find out your firstname and lastname control name using the web console ans pass the value with the url.

    If you have any further query, please let us know.

    Ah, think I got the terminology wrong, I'm sorry.

    What I meant was; Is it possible to have the form auto paste the first & last name fields into the Squareup first & last name payment fields?

    Unfortunately, that it is not possible to pass the value from the first and last name fields, into the first and last name fields of the payment integration. It is only possible to populate those fields through URL parameters as shown on my colleagues example.

    Thanks.

    Are we absolutely sure about this?

    I've seen this before at other payment gates.

    Yes. Unfortunately, there is no method to populate the name field on Squareup coming from the name field other than the URL parameter method.

    I suspect that the one you saw was a simple name and address fields which is possible to copy fields from one to another, which are not part of the payment field. In any case, feel free to share with us some links which you believe this method applies.

    Thanks.
