    You can view the form submissions in the Submissions page. Here's a guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/269-How-to-View-Form-Submissions

    It is possible to connect your form to a MySQL database using PHP. You need to have knowledge in PHP programming for that. Please check this guide: How-to-send-Submissions-to-Your-MySQL-Database-Using-PHP

    You might also want to check JotForm Webhooks. Please check this blog post: Send-Instant-Submission-Notifications-with-Webhooks. You can find Webhooks example on this guide: Webhook-PHP-Script-Examples

    If you need further assistance, please let us know. We will be happy to assist you.

    You can try to use the send post data feature in JotForm. The feature basically posts the data entered on the form to the Thank You page on your own site where you can use server side programming to process the order on your own database. For more information, you can check this article: How to Post Submission Data to Thank You Page.
