  • Did you know that as many as 69% of the visitors to your form leave without completing it? And if you don’t have access to any meaningful form statistics it is virtually impossible to know exactly what triggers this desertion, or how to improve it.

    This is why we are excited to announce our integration with Formisimo - an easy to use form analytics tool, designed to track every visitor interaction with your forms, and give you advanced data and insights into their behaviour.

    Why use Formisimo?

    Formsimo will enable you to make informed decisions on exactly what to improve, cut out or change to improve your form conversions. You can see exactly where users struggle to complete your form, where they drop out, which fields they have to correct the most, how long it takes them to complete, and much more.

  • Forms are boring. Nobody says “I wish I made more forms” on their death bed. That’s where JotForm comes in and saves the day. Spend your time with family, friends and fun stuff, not with forms. :) 

    JotForm’s mission is to be quickest way to create web forms. In our early days we had the tagline “Easiest Form Builder.” Today, the bar is higher. Our mission is the save you time. Here are some of the tools and ideas we came up with to help you save time.

    1) Form Templates
    2) Every Form Should Be As Simple As Possible, But Not Simpler
    3) Clone Form
    4) “Duplicate Fields” on Form Builder
    5) “Manage Fields” on Form Builder
    6) Field Manager App
    7) Configurable List Widget

  • PayPal is the most popular payment gateway on JotForm. We help our users process over 5 million dollars in transactions every month using PayPal.  Today, we are excited to announce a new option for payment forms: PayPal Express Checkout.

    Why should you prefer PayPal Express Checkout?
    The best way to increase conversion rates is to make the checkout process as simple as possible. PayPal Express Checkout helps you with that. Instead of redirecting users to PayPal's site, a small pop-up with a PayPal login form launches, the user completes the payment quickly and submits the form. Payment can be done in a single step. Quick and easy for your users, and more revenue for you! :)
