    What are secure submissions and why there are more of them than payment submissions for free plan?

    Asked by Aga1972 on May 03, 2016 at 12:40 PM

    For example what does 'SSL Secure Submissions' actually mean and why are there more of these than "Receive Payments'?



    Kind regards

    Difference between secure submissions and payment submissions Agnes is that secure submissions means that your forms are loaded and submitted over secure channel by using HTTPS protocol instead of the usual HTTP protocol.

    In terms of payment submissions, they are limited to less than any other submission type for free plan since if there are more than 10 payments per month, it was seen as fair to purchase a plan if you want to accept more.

    On a paid plan however (any paid plan) you have all of the submissions just the same - so you can get 1000 payments, plain submissions or secure ones per month on Bronze plan.

    Hope this gives you more details, but please do let us know if you happen to have any additional questions.
