Am I allowed to integrate JotForm with my own api endpoint to support a custom payment method?

    Hello and thank you very much for your fantastic service. I'm using with great satisfaction.

    I need to integrate with an online bank service to let people register and pay for a conference. The bank I'm integrating with has a peculiar way of submitting payments so I'm already developing a serverless api of one endpoint (a POST HTTP method) for receiving user data from my JotForm, integrating it with the bank account data and send a request to the bank service.

    I'm going to use the "SEND POST DATA" option in the form settings so my endpoint can receive the user data that it needs. Please notice that no bank account information transit through your service. This data is confined into my own endpoint.

    Is this scenario allowed by JotForm or is this something that violates the end user agreement of your service?

    Thank you very much for your help and you great service.

    As far as I know this is not possible because Send Post Data method is not available to payment fields. If you check the result variables and PHP codes using the test URL https://www.jotform.com/show-post-data/ you will notice that the payment field variable names will not be included.

    This is logical as the payment integration process were being performed by the 3rd party payment processor.

    You can also contact our API team at api@jotform.com if you have further question on this.

    Thank you.
