    Hello, a client has 8-10 pdf forms that they created — they want to collect payment information on the pdf form securely. Can I use Jot Forms to make the pdfs secure? The pdfs already include form fields, they are just worried about clients filling them out and submitting their payment information via email.

    You can create indeed a PDF form, here is the guide that will help you with that: How-to-create-a-PDF-form

    However, payment integrations are not available on PDF forms, they use code that can be processed only for a web browser, here is the exact text from our guide Fillable-PDF-Everything-you-need-to-know-about-JotForm-Fillable-PDF-Creator

    "Q: Will my payment tools be shown in the Fillable PDF?

    A: Not at this time."

    If you need to collect payments you will need to do it through a web form.
