Information also needs to be streamlined and collected in administrative offices. Students need an efficient way to register for next semester’s classes and extracurricular clubs and activities. Professors and other educators increasingly prefer to collect papers and assignments digitally, by sending out a form where students can upload and send their documents.

  • You never forget your first sale. And for online shop owners, the rush of that digital 'cha-ching' can leave you craving more. More sales, more customers, more growth. Feed your craving—and build your bottom line—by pairing the power of JotForm with your Shopify storefront. Here are a few ideas for building forms that boost online sales.


  • In real life, walking away from a purchase mid-stream is uncommon. Online, it's a different story. It's all too easy to abandon a digital shopping cart or click away from a half-complete payment form.

    The freedom to abandon a purchase is a convenience for customers, but a frustration for merchants looking to close a sale.

    At JotForm, our primary mission is to help our users create and embed forms - including payment forms - on their websites. Additionally, we want to help our users understand what keeps their customers from completing purchases, so we turned to our data. Every time a potential customer loads a payment form on one of our user’s websites, it’s tracked. That information, plus the number of payments submitted, is used to calculate conversion rate - basically, how often a user follows through with a purchase. 

    Read on to learn what factors influenced conversion rates from our data and analysis.
