    Hello,

    I was wondering if you add an authorize.net widget to a jotform, is it safe to embed on a website that doesn't have an SSL? Thanks!

    Our payment integrations can be found under the "Payment Fields" section in the form builder:

     

    You can see on the list the supported payment integrations that we have, which includes Authorize.net. To learn more on how to setup your payment form, please visit the following guides:

    https://www.jotform.com/help/47-Order-Form-Basics 

    http://www.jotform.com/help/49-Order-Form-Types 

    http://www.jotform.com/help/165-Setting-Up-Your-First-Order-Form 

     

    The form by default uses HTTPS protocol (SSL enabled), the payments that will be made on the form is processed directly in Authorize.net, JotForm does not process these payments, we simply using API to integrate to a 3rd party payment processor. That will make sure that the payment details will be transacted on a secure page. 

    However, even though the form and the integration is secured, we cannot guarantee that your website (NOT SSL enabled) will not be used as the medium to a security exploit. It would still be best that the page where you want to embed the form should also be SSL enabled. 

    I hope that helps.
