What if I need a different payment option?

    I work for Cornerstone University. We are currently searching for form builders that would be compatible with our needs for a new website that we are building. Our seminary currently uses Jotform for their online applications, and has been happy with the product. If we were to expand our use of Jotform, we would need to incorporate online payments. 

    Here's the catch: we already use the credit card processor "Official Payments." If they were able to provide an API, or our developer was able to create a plug in with their payment process, would we be able to use Jotform with Official Payments? Or are we limited to PayPal, Google, etc.?

    If someone could get back to me about this issue, I would great appreciate it.

    Thank you for your interest in expanding the use of Jotform for your institution. Sad to say, there is no easy way to custom-integrate a 3rd party API to our form builder.

    I guess it would be possible to integrate the API with a Jot-form's full source codes, but doing so will be cumbersome, not to mention that the end product will be prone to errors.

    We would defenitely advise that you consider our ready-made integrations with known payment processors (Paypal, Authorize.Net, Google Checkout).
