    If I don't have a https website, what do you mean when you say I can give a link to a secure form? Thanks.

    This is a re-post of a comment on How do I receive SSL Submissions?

    Hi Glen

    If the address of your page does not start with https, it is not secure and you can't embed the secure version of your form(s) there. Instead, the only option would be to put just a normal text (or image) link to your secure form. In other words, if your page is not secure, you can't have the actual form appear on that page. Users would need to click a link on the page that would take them to the form. The closest you can get to the actual form appearing on your unsecured page would be an image of the said form. This is different than an embedded form which can be completed and submitted from your page even though the form doesn't actually reside there.

    If you need additional clarification or want to know more about other features of our forms, our team will be glad to help.

    The URL of the form will be secure. A site visitor will be brought to this secure URL to complete the form. 

    Looking at your site, you have this set up perfectly. 

    The form is showing a secure just fine.

    Can you please explain in further detail what this means:

    "The closest you can get to the actual form appearing on your unsecured page would be an image of the said form. This is different than an embedded form which can be completed and submitted from your page even though the form doesn't actually reside there."

    My page is not secured but I would like to include a secured form on there without having to link to the form.  I do not want to link only to the form because it loses my website headers and navigation.  Is there a workaround for this?  Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you in advance
