    How can I integrate square into my jot form to take purchases?

    Asked by hje0001 on October 08, 2016 at 11:29 AM

    I have a jot form which is meant to facilitate the order of restaurant and grocery food. 


    I have been using the form to allow people to write down what they want and I am going out, buying the food, and charging them through my square reader. 


    This process is tedious and takes a good but of time. I saw that we can integrate square payment with the form? What are your thought on this? Any help is appreciated because I just really need to make the transaction process as easy as possible.

    Once the payment is made, there is no way you can charge users the balance using the same form. I would suggest creating a new form and enable user-defined amount for them to fill their balance and pay.
