Process Square Payments Online with JotForm

September 20, 2016

jotform square integration

Do you use Square to collect payments for your business? JotForm now offers Square website integration so you can create powerful, easy-to-edit payment forms. 

Imagine you make and sell handmade baskets. You started out by selling your baskets at local farmers’ markets and craft shows, where you accept credit card payments using Square. After a while, you start getting requests for custom orders, and you determine the easiest way to take custom orders is by directing people to your new website, where a JotForm order form collects all of the detailed specs for personalised baskets. 

With JotForm’s Square website integration, the customers at the market and the customers ordering online will process payments through the exact same payment gateway! You can have real-time, powerful reporting across both your online and offline business, while you deliver some quality products to your customers. 

Square also works perfectly with forms you use to collect donations, register event guests, or any other type of payment form you might use. And JotForm is proud to be the first online form builder to integrate with Square.

Wonderful! Thank you.

Great work.

Now if we could get the development team to come up with a *simple* method to save a partially-filled form, you know, like Adobe's FormsCentral did, that would be FANTASTIC!

I know, I know, you'll move this off to a different thread... but I'm going to keep poking at this until it's better.

Please add conditional logic for product selection and quantity. For example, for each first name field that is filled add 1 to the quantity of product x. Make a read only field. Thank you.

I'm working to convert all of our forms to this payment method and I'm having trouble getting the "total" to display. Where is this feature configured? One of my forms can be found here:

This is awesome you are working towards more integration. Is there a submission for users you will be intergrating with square? This could be used for Promotional and marketing campaigns. Currently I have to import a CSV into square.

Shipping options do not appear to be working. Set up via wizard, but the shipping amount does not appear anywhere and is not added to the total.

I integrated my square deposit onto my contract and received a payment today. I can only see this in JotForm though and not through Square nor did I receive any sort of email from Square about the deposit. Will any sort of notification be sent? Also, why isn't this showing up in Square? I'm trying to figure out where the money currently is. Thanks.

I can not get it to work. Square says it's my host, and my host says its Square. The form shows up on my site but you can not enter a CC number. There's dots there and it won't allow anything to be entered. Square told me that the integration process requires code, however the demo above shows it being super easy. I'm connected properly to my square account.

Square allows for recurring payments. Can this be integrated into Jotform? I want my customer's card to be saved so recurring payments may be made.
