    If we use PayPal Pro to accept credit card payments on our site using JotForm to create the form and put in the payment information - do we need a SSL on our webpage to make it secure?

    From what I know, the security of your forms is separate from your website. We are in-charge of the security of your forms and your forms will still work even if your website is Non-SSL. However, it is still best and recommended to have full security on both to prevent risk.

    So - just to make sure I understand.  If we do not have an SSL on our website page - the form we put on the webpage will be secure because it is hosted by your site?  Is that what you are saying?

    The security of your forms lies with Jotform and as for the security of the payments, it lies with PayPal. Even if the form didn't use SSL, data would still be transmitted to PayPal using their security

    I would suggest you use our Security Certificate Seal that would only show if the form is in SSL or HTTPS.


    Or you can also make your form more secure by encrypting it.
