    Can I create an event registration/payment form not hosted on our site.

    Asked by nkeller on March 18, 2014 at 10:19 AM

    Hello!

    Next month a local University is holding a color/obstacle run to benefit our non-profit organization. I’m in the process of setting up a business/non-profti PayPal account to allow for people to pay for their event registration. I saw that PayPal and JotForm can be integrated, but is it still possible to not embed that on our website. Is that a secure transaction? I could possibly embed th form on our website, but that is also an antiquated site that is in the process of a substantial upgrade so if I can keep the form off of our site, that would be my preference.  I’m assuming this will mean we’d have to upgrade our JotForm account to be able to accept payments, correct?

     

    Thank you for your time!

    Hello Nikki

    Yes it's a secure transaction. To finish the payment the user gets redirected to the paypal site, where he can insert his login details and confirm the purchase.

    If you wish you don't need to embed the form on your website. You can use the standalone version. If you need to share your form you just need to copy the url in the preview mode:

    You can also share your form by email:

    The free account has a monthly limit of 10 secure (SSL) submissions and 10 received payments. If you are planning on more than 10 monthly payments, yes it is necessary to upgrade:
