How to Set Up Recurring Payments with Jotform

It’s no secret that Jotform makes it easy to collect payments for your organization. But did you know Jotform enables recurring payments? This functionality comes in handy for nonprofits who rely on monthly donations, or businesses that charge a monthly subscription fee for their services.

Most of our payment partners, like PayPal, Stripe, Braintree, Authorize.Net, and Paymill enable you to collect recurring payments. It’s just a matter of setting it up through JotForm. The good news? It’s incredibly simple.

Start by selecting which payment provider you’d like to use under “Payments” in the sidebar to the left of the form you’re editing.

For this example, I’ve chosen PayPal Personal, but any number of other payment options work well. After choosing your payment processor, you’ll have to choose a payment option from the payment wizard. Choose “Sell Subscriptions” to enable recurring payments on your form and then “Continue”.

Recurring payments are crucial for many businesses, nonprofits, and schools. Here at Jotform, we wanted to offer our users the ability to set up a monthly revenue stream for your organization without needing to know how to code.

The great thing about creating a recurring payment form with Jotform is that you can easily embed the form straight onto your website by copying and pasting some code, or you can send the form as a standalone link that you can share on social media and emails.
