    Yes.  To sort it out by site in the backend you may need to copy/recreate the form but if you don't care about sorting (or if you're creating a different form for each site/domain) it works great for multiple sites.

    Just realized that my response may have been unclear:

    If you want one form to send everything to one place regardless of the source domain then you can embed a single form on multiple domains.  

    If you want to track where it came from you can do one of two things:
    1) Copy the original form and adjust the email you get to reflect the domain it comes from.
    2) Add a drop down field to have the user indicate the source of the contact.

    Wow, thanks for offering your assistance to a fellow Jotform user. Your efforts are greatly appreciated.

    @artwisted69

    Yes you can deploy a single form to multiple websites. As an alternative to capnpop's solution on how to track where a submission came from, you may want to take a look at this in-depth discussion about tracking submission referrer using iframe prepopulation

    This can prove to be fool-proof solution to accurately identify where a submission was initiated. If you need further assistance regarding this solution, feel free to contact us again. You can either post here or on that particular thread. Thank you.

    Thank you for your responses, my web site is providing a service to boat owners for Boat transport. I am not a programmer but am beginning to understand what is happening, however, I have a problem with the PayPal integration as on my reservation page. The service requires a 50% deposit on acceptance of a quote, which is based on several variables not least of all the mileage, and cannot therefore be a fixed price. The paypal (Reservation) form however requires a fixed product name/price.

    Please how do I get over this and also collect the balance later?

    @Piete

    Please open a new thread for any new issues.

    To quickly answer your question, however, our Paypal integration unfortunately only allows for fixed price products. There may be workarounds we could offer e.g have 10miles as a 'product' then your user would select x number of 10 miles from your paypal field. 

    But please open a new thread if you want us to consider your needs in greater detail to see if there is any workarounds we could supply.

    Thanks.
