    You will need to customize a bit the embedded code, this JavaScript method will help you to set a delay to trigger an action: 


    // Form's code  here

    }, 5000);

    So the code that you will embed should be like this: 

    <script src="https://form.jotform.com/static/feedback2.js?3.3.REV" type="text/javascript">


            var JFL_62421478750154 = new JotformFeedback({

              formId: '62421478750154',

              base: 'https://form.jotform.com/',

              windowTitle: 'Body By Phoenix',

              background: '#f50505',

              fontColor: '#FFFFFF',

              type: 'false',

              height: 500,

              width: 600,

              openOnLoad: true


         }, 5000);


    Highlighted on green color is the function that you will add and highlighted on yellow color is the form's code. 

    The value for 5000 is set in milliseconds so it is the same as you were setting 5 seconds, here is also a link that will help you with the setTimeout() method: http://www.w3schools.com/jsref/met_win_settimeout.asp 

    Hope this helps.
