    So I cannot create a secured form using Jotform that will collect credit card information even to a website that has a SSL certificate?

    Unfortunately, you can not use your form to collect credit card information.

    You can refer to this guide, here we say that is not allowed to collect credit card information even when you are using a secured form :

    If we use Encrypted form can we ask for credit card details without payment processor integrations?

    No! This is still forbidden and will lead to account termination just as if you are collecting passwords, Social Security Numbers and similar, per our terms of use.

    You can use this ways to collect payments :

    I hope that helps.
