    So my site does not have an ssl, so it is http, not https (and for reasons, I won't be able to obtain one) so moving forward- My question is: Will I be able to take jotform+stripe payment on my site?

    Yes you will be able to embed HTTP form that is using Stripe payment integration to your website. 

    You can also make your form secure SSL and then embed it to your website. Once the user clicked on Submit button, all data will be submitted on JotForm server on a secure manner. For more information please read How can I receive SSL submission.

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Okay thanks, so if it works and it take BOTH the http jotform and the https jotform, then I will obviously use the https jotform... Is there a downside to this? Will it prompt any errors?

    If you are embedding the https form into non https website, then by default, most browsers will prompt and can block automatically the form and prevent it from functioning properly.

    It is because most browsers, by default are set to check mixed contents on pages (combined http and https content). The browser will prompt that there are unsecure content on the page.

    Ideally, it is best to use https form on https website, and same with http form on http page/website.

    Hope this help. Let us know if you need further clarification.
