    All subscription plans have 3 types of submissions. You have Regular Non-Secure Submissions, Secure Submission (SSL) and Payment Submissions.

    For the Free account you have:
    100 Regular Submissions
    10 Secure Submissions (SSL)
    10 Payment Submissions

    As you mentioned, you predict approximately 30-75 payments which means that the free account will  not be sufficient enough. It can only allow 10 payments to go through and if any one of your submission limit is exceeded your forms will be disabled automatically until the 1st of the following month when your limits are refreshed. 

    Whenever a payment transaction is conducted on your form - Paypal for example - there will be an increase in your Payment submission count only. 

    If you have a non payment form and submissions are made to that form, this will increase your Regular Non Secure Submission count (as long as the secure link or script is not being used).
    Non-Secure form link: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/50717190534958 

    For your Secure form (SSL) you have the enable the secure form option in the Embed window before copying the form link or the embed code.



    Submission made through your form using the a secure form link or embed script will increase your SSL submission count. If you secure your form and conduct payments on that form only your Payment Submission count will be increased.
    Secure form link: https://secure.jotformpro.com/form/50717190534958 

    I hope this information helped. Do let us know if further clarification is needed.


    Cheers!

    In addition, unlike the Regular submission, information submitted in a SSL enabled form will be encrypted before transmitted to our server. This is the safest option to explore when transmitting data.
