    Hi,

    Jotform is compatible with any platform that supports embedding HTML codes. Follow the instructions in this tutorial on how to insert html code into your auction page. After that, insert your jotform codes. The most ideal embed method for this platform is the iframe embed method.

    To get your iframe embed codes:

    1.  Go to Setup & Embed

    2.  Click Embed Form

    3.  Choose iframe

    4.  Copy the codes provided

    You should then see your form inside the auction page. If not, please let us know so we can come up with a better solution.

    Tried this but to no avail.

    Note from eBay: Your listing cannot contain Javascript (".cookie", "cookie(", "replace(", IFRAME, META, or includes), cookies or base href.


    I really like to embed this one to my listings.

    Hi guimaras

    It appears that the solution to this problem is to embed the form in your listings via an object element instead of an iFrame.

    After googling the string "your listing cannot contain javascript", I eventually discovered this video on embedding YouTube videos on eBay. Knowing that YouTube videos are normally embedded via iFrames, I figured the method illustrated might also work for JotForm forms. As you will see in the video, the object tag works.

    However, googling "object tag" led me to this page which showed that two of the three major browsers (Internet Explorer and Firefox) do not fully support the tag. But there might be a way around this because googling "convert iframe to object" led me to this 456 Berea St article which may have implications not just for embedding our forms on eBay but on other sites too.

    The feasibility of the solution provided will need to be tested but I don't have an eBay account. Perhaps another member of the JotForm Support Team or one of our users may have such an account via which they can run a test for you.

    I'll keep you posted.

    Dear guimaras,

     

    There's a way out of this. The ebay form says they don't accept javascripts. Simply, remove all the javascripts from the Source code. The source code you get by clicking the icon next to Thank you from top, named with 'Embed Form' then going in to 'Source.

    Ebay also says that they don't accept meta, simply remove the link rel from the code.


    Finally you'll be able to put that up on your Ebay accout.

    Thanks

    I'd just like to re-open this thread...

     

    I have done as suggested above to use a form within my ebay listing.

    BUT-

    The form does not function without the following Javascript.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    <script src="//max.jotfor.ms/static/prototype.forms.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

    <script src="//max.jotfor.ms/static/jotform.forms.js?3.2.3797" type="text/javascript"></script>

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Without this the user cannot submit the form.

     

    Is there a way around this?

     

    Thanks in advance,

    John.
