    How to get Digital Certificate and assure our clients that their data will be transmitted securely?

    Asked by TentMA on December 08, 2013 at 03:55 AM

    How do I get digital certificate if I create a Paypal Form to accept payment?

    How can I assure my clients that their details will be kept private and secured?


    I want to include this in my payment Form but I do not have digital certificate:

    Making the payment
    Only pay via a secure web page (one that has a valid digital certificate) Look for the https at the beginning of the address bar and a locked padlock in the browser. Read more about digital certificates: Understanding digital certificates and why they are important to check (File size: 270Kb) Use a secure payment method such as PayPal, BPay, or your credit card. Avoid money transfers and direct debit, as these can be open to abuse. Never send your bank or credit card details via email-only via a secure web page. Always print and keep a copy of the transaction.

    Hello Arlene,

    If I understand your requirement correctly, you want to use your form's secure URL and at the same time assure your form users that their data will be transmitted securely. Is that correct?

    If you use SSL/secure form URL to accept submission, the data transferred from your browser to our server will also be secure. We support high-grade 256-bit encryption. You have option where you can select if you want the form data to be secured. You can use the secure / SSL form URL or embed script. 

    Here is a guide on how to receive SSL submissions: http://www.jotform.com/help/63-How-can-I-receive-SSL-Submissions

    If you want your form user to know that their data will be sent securely, you can add enable security certificate seal in your form. Here is a guide which you can refer:  http://www.jotform.com/help/131-Enabling-Security-Certificate-Seal-on-Secure-Forms

    Hope this answers your question.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
