    I checked your form and the problem is in the name of each product, you see each of your names is consisted of mix of tags and product description:

    So if you remove tags, it will show normally:

    And you can do that by going to Wizard of your payment field:

    And click Edit on each product:

    Hope it helps.

    Do let us know if you have further questions.

    Thank you!

    Hi Nik,
    Thanks for your quick response.
    I put the HTML in the product name when I created the form because I wanted
    to have a product name as well as a description on my form. I didn't see
    any form payment wizards that gave me that option, so I added HTML in the
    product name as a work around. It used to look like the last screenshot you
    attached, but recently changed. Did something change on JotForm?
    At the end of the day, I really just want a product title and description
    area.
    Can you recommend another payment wizard or other feature that can help me
    achieve this?
    Thank you!

    You're correct, iirc this was indeed working before. Using HTML tags on the Product Name should have rendered the HTML tags properly.

    However, it appears some changes were rolled out with how these labels are being rendered so I've escalated this to our Devs. Although I won't be able to give you any timeframe, rest assured, we'll keep you apprised on this same thread if/when there's an update.

    Sadly, after testing several Payment Processors, none of them renders the HTML tags. For the time being, the best we can do is either wait for an update from our Developers OR just follow my colleague's suggestion of removing the HTML tags as a temporary solution so it displays properly at the very least.
