    I am using Jotform to create forms for my site on Google. I am using free plan so I can receive only 10 secure ssl submissions. Now, every submission that I get is secure. I don't want it to be secure! How can I turn it off? I tried by replacing HTTPS with HTTP in link but it doesn't helps. Is this maybe because Google sites start with HTTPS:// ?

    Google Sites forces our form to use HTTPS even when you've embedded your form as HTTP since they run on HTTPS. The solution is to put your non-SSL (HTTP) form to the Google Sites using 3rd party Embed Gadget. Here's how:

    1. Go to your site.

    2. Switch to Edit mode.

    3. Open "Insert Menu" Select "More gadgets" at the bottom.

    4. Select "Embed Gadget".

    5. Put your form iFrame embed code, adjust gadget width and height, then press OK.

    If you need further assistance, please let us know.

    Thank you!

    SSL submission limits refresh every 1st date of the month. I can see that you have exceeded your allowed SSL limit for this month. You should not allow your forms to get disabled due to overlimits as this will only refresh on the 1st date of the month and that makes your form unusable. 

    What you can you do is to delete some submissions to free up some space that has been consumed. Our system will automatically notify you if you are near your monthly allowable limit. If you feel that you need higher SSL, You should consider our Paid Plans.

    I can see your form is still active though. Let us know if you need help.
