    Hi Richard,

    Yes, Jotform is compatible with the latest WordPress versions. In fact, we have a plugin for WordPress, you can check it here:

    Embed Form Plugin for Wordpress

    New Wordpress Plugin: JotForm Feedback Button

     

    With regards to the advantages, I can say, we have a few features that Gravity Forms doesn't have. You can create your form with Drag and Drop functionality. Customizing your forms is never been too hard. 

    -Integrations to third party websites (Google Spreadsheets, MailChimp, Zoho CRM and more)

    -Applications that you can use for your account and forms: http://apps.jotform.com/

    -Widgets that you can add to your form: http://apps.jotform.com/. Our widgets have been release a few days ago with a bunch of ready to use fields. 

     

    If you are a developer that loves to create Applications. You can do it with Jotform: http://developers.jotform.com/

     

    If you are looking for a specific features and/or functionality, please let us know and we'll check and give it to you. You had a lot of things to explore with Jotform :)

    Thanks

    What about integration with my PayPal account? Does this work?
    Also, is your plugging a standalone plug-in? I search the plug-ins on WordPress and it appears that there is a plug-in associated with jot form, but first you have to create the forms outside the plug-in?
    Do know what I am talking about.?
    Gravity forms may be great for a lot of people who use WordPress, but quite frankly I think the User interphase is not as straightforward as yours probably is, and I'm looking for something that intuitively makes a lot more sense.
    please get back to me on the above.

    Hi Richard,

    Yes, we do have an integration with Paypal. Check it here: PayPal Forms.

    Only two plugins are made by Jotform (given to my previous reply), but there are few developers who created and App for Jotform. Yes, you would need to create the form into the Jotform's Form Builder if you will use our own WordPress Plugins. After you install the plugin, you can see an icon to your WordPress post/page editor. Just click on it, select your form and click Select Form button to insert the shortcode:

    Just be sure that you logged in to your account and use the same browser for adding form using the plugin. 

    Or, use this plugin: http://apps.jotform.com/app/form_generator_for_wordpress. This plugin allows you to embed the form builder into your WordPress website dashboard then create your form without leaving your site. 

    Thanks

    -You could do more with Jotform. You can customize the form and blend it per your website settings. The colors, the font sizes and the backgrounds.

     

    Does your WordPress Jot Form integrate with PayPal?

    -Yes, check it here: PayPal Forms. This guide would help you: Setting Up Your First Order Form.

     

    Let us know if you need further information.

    Thanks
