Introducing a new product list form field

Who doesn’t like having options?

Life is full of tough choices, and finding exactly what you need is always rewarding.

Until now, JotForm users had only one way to connect a payment processor integration with their online order forms, payment forms, e-commerce forms, or credit card forms.

Today, JotForm is rolling out two new ways to connect a payment processor integration with your form. These new changes also let you create an online store before choosing a payment processor.

And that’s not all. JotForm is implementing two new ways to remove an integration from your form. Neither require you to rebuild your online store from the ground up when you select a new payment processor.

Before, you couldn’t build your online store until you’d set up an account with a payment processor and connected it to a form through one of JotForm’s integrations.

This workflow could be particularly problematic if you wanted to try out a number of payment processors before settling on one.

Now you can keep your online store intact and try out different payment processors before finding the one that meets your business’s needs. 

How to access and use the Product List field 

  1. While you’re building a form, click on the Add Form Element icon that appears on the left side of the Form Builder.
  1. Click on Product List under the Basic tab in the Form Elements menu. 
  1. Click on the Product List icon on your form to add products that you want to sell, offer coupons, add shipping options, apply taxes for online orders, and set up the invoices that customers or clients can receive when they successfully place an order. 
  1. Click on the Add Payment Integration icon next to the Product List field on your form.
  1. Use the popup menu to select the payment processor integration you’d like to use. After you’ve picked a payment processor integration, click Use Selection. 
  1. Connect your form to your payment processor of choice by clicking the Connect button in the Integration menu. 
  1. You can also connect your form to a payment gateway by clicking on the Settings button under the Products tab in the Product List menu. 

Start the integration process by clicking on the Add Payment Integration button toward the top of the Product List Settings menu. 

  1. You can still add a payment processor integration to your form by clicking on the Add Form Element icon and searching for the integration you want under the Payments tab in the Form Elements menu. 
  1. If you want to try out a new payment processor, you can make the switch seamlessly by clicking on the Add Form Element icon and selecting the gateway you’re using under the Payments tab in the Form Elements menu.

Click on the icon with three vertical dots in the payment gateway box and select Switch to another gateway. 

  1. If you’re using the Product List field on your form and want to remove a payment processor integration from your online store, simply click on the Remove Integration icon. 
  1. You can also remove a payment processor integration from your online store by clicking on the Settings button under the Products tab in the Product List menu. Click on the trash can icon in the payment processor field toward the top of the Product List Settings menu, or select the arrows icon next to it to seamlessly switch to another payment gateway integration.
