    I created a on-line deposit form and jotform revised some of the fields (phishing activity) .  I would like to add the name of the person who is make a reservation. would this be violating my account w/jotform? 

    would it be all right to add the field: "name of person making reservation" 

    iam looking into your payment field options now

    I think as long as you do not collect payment directly( Meaning with any of our payment Integration) and use the form in a way that is not against our Terms of Use, you should not have any problem. 

    It is advised to always use one of the existing payment Integration tools to collect payment from a form, to avoid any trouble (like form being disabled).

    If you have more question, we will be here to help.


    Thank you

    thank you

    we use these forms when we have a credit card dispute. since there is no name on the form. I was concerned on how can we prove client authorized us to use credit card?

    so the form is good "as is" and we are in compliance with jotform now?

    Yes, you can add a signature field on the form. 

    Ideally, it is still a better option to use a payment gateway service such as Paypal, there is an option there to set payment submissions for authorization only, which you can manually change on your paypal account's interface.

    You can learn more on this page regarding JotForm's paypal authorize payments option:
