    Asked on April 29, 2020 at 08:57 PM

    I keep getting an error message no matter what i input in my form to collect square payments.  I have the test environment on and i have used all the numbers.  I get error messages double submissions aren't allowed and some other random error message.  I've spent too much time trying to figure this out and i have clients that need to pay.  but i obviously cant give them the link if i don't know how it works myself.  Please help.

    Try enabling the test mode in your gateway settings and test your form again, see if that works.

    Not sure why it's not working on your end. I just tried it with my test account and it works. Can you please test my cloned version here https://form.jotform.com/201198802769969.

    I have now forwarded this to our L2 team for further checking and we'll let you know once we have an update.

    None of the test forms work.  I just tried your link and it still didn’t work.  I put the visa number in 411111111111111 and 111 ccv and it still gave me a system error.  

    Apologies for the inconvenience. I can see that the issue has already been escalated to our backend team for further checking. We will notify you via this ticket once we have an update.

    I cannot move past the first page of my form when it’s encrypted.  Why?  The form shows non secure when opened. 

    I have moved this query to a separate ticket to avoid confusion. Kindly follow this link and we'll be answering you there shortly.

    I had to run a LIVE test on myself because the system isn’t integrating at all.  There was no alert from square.  

    Also, there’s no way to manage the payments through square.  The only way a subscription can be canceled is through JotForm.  Also it’s not supposed to charge right away and it definitely did, despite the settings being charge later. 

    Also to add, there is no link in the email receipt from jotform for square.  Is that somewhere and I missed including that.  If so, can you please show me so I can find it and update it. It just seems like a lot is missing and I can’t use this for my customers if the payment system isn’t going to be correct.  Please advise.

    The connection concern has already been forwarded to our backend team.

    As for the subscription issue, I have moved it to a separate ticket:
