    Customizing the form base on the provided layout

    Asked by AceYui on September 26, 2015 at 04:06 PM


    I'm currently working on a new project and I want a few details in it.

    [1st Concern]

    Just like the order form below from Frank Kern, I would like to be able to put details besides the form itself. Like for example, a picture of me or my business and a summary on the right side and the form itself on the left side. How can I do this?


    [2nd Concern]

    Just like in the 2nd screenshot below, I would like to have that kind of clean looking Payment Information Form instead of the usual "click here to buy" button and then have my customers be directed to the ugly looking PayPal page form. How can I do this?

    For those who could help or give constructive advice, THANK YOU!

    There are many ways to achieve that.

    It's either you create the page with all the details on the right side and a blank area on the left side so you only have to embed the form you created in the form builder.

    Or, you can construct everything at Jotform by using Text tool where you can add images, text or tables. Then position them by injecting CSS codes to your form or by using the form designer. If you need help on this part, send us a message.

    We also have few templates available designed with sidebars which you can clone and customize on the form builder.





    About collecting payments straight from your form, you can use payment integrations that offers CC payment like Paypal Pro, Stripe or Authorize.net. They can be found under Payment Tools.

    If we can be of further assistance, feel free to let us know.
