As a web developer, can I use a premium account to build forms?

    I build web sites for folks and often, they would like a form or two. Most of the time, the client's hosting service has a form builder, but I would like a better way of doing it, short of doing the programming myself. Also, I'm fascinated with the idea of building some form of payment into your forms, because I'm currently working with a non-profit that has a "donate" paypal button and would love to incorporate the entire payment form in their own site.

    My question is, can I set up a premium account for myself (or web business) and then use that to build forms for my individual clients, most of whom are small businesses with limited budgets?

    As an alternative, of course, I could have each client set up their own individual free account, but that would be a big nuisance, since most of them are not computer savvy, let alone web savvy. :-)

    Hi Dean,

    First off, thanks for your interest in our service. Yes, you can set up a premium account for yourself (or web business) and then use that to build forms for your individual clients. It would be a lot easier for you to manage and update the forms from a single account.

    If you have further questions, feel free to contact us.

    As an addon for this question, is it possible to gove the client we create the form for a sub account login for them to look at statistics and reports etc without viewing other forms for other clients?

    Sub account login isn't possible with JotForm. But, you can share form submissions to your clients by allowing submissions page viewable to public. This way they can view, download or export shared submissions reports. Please check the screen below to learn how:

    1. Select the form and Click Submissions.

    2. On the Submissins Page, click the Gear Icon.

    3. Enable "Make This Page Public"

    4. Enter your Page Password (only client with password can proceed to your form's submissions page)

    5. Get your Submissions Page link

    6. Share!


    You can check my sample submissions here, and then check below to export submissions to Excel or CSV Files.
