    Thank you

    I think this is the first time this was asked. I added this to our feature requests list. Thank you!

    What kind of payments would you use flexible payments service for?

    Good question. Pretty much everything.

    I have a paypal account that I currently use for accepting online payments. However to be able to accept credit cards on a site in a normal way via paypal you have to have their next level up. meaning that I have to take on a $35 per month charge.

    With FPS it only costs an extra ~1% per transasction  and there are no ongoing monthly fees.

    So from a shoestring standpoint FPS makes way more sense than taking on yet another "small" monthly expense.

    Ideally I would like to use jotform as my checkout / shopping cart. Primarily because of the flexibility with gathering information / feedback from clients.
