Mastering Payment Form Integrations with JotFormLast Update: April 18, 2017
Sending online payments is here to stay. Fortunately, collecting online payments is one of the strongest parts of our service and the reason why so many people choose to use JotForm. It is no longer a tedious process to set up a payment form. In fact, you don’t have to write a single line of code with our powerful payment integrations.
We allow accepting payments securely and efficiently. The payment data is not stored on our servers and is safely protected with 256-bit SSL encryption when submitting to the payment gateway services. We do not charge any commissions. Any transaction fees are entirely based on the payment service you choose. We are
JotForm is a PCI DSS compliant service. We have PCI Service Provider Level 2 certificate. We'd happy to provide certificate to any users who would need it for their payment gateway. Just contact our support team.
Available payment integrations.
There are so many choices. What should I use?
Well, it depends on what you are looking for.
If you would like to accept online credit and debit card payments directly from your form without redirecting to the payment gateway provider's site, then you should choose among PayPal Pro, Stripe and Authorize.Net integrations.
If an online payment is not needed at all, use the Purchase Order tool. Sometimes you want to receive payments by check, or just provide your form users with a tool to calculate the total for the service they might purchase.
Although not a payment integration, professional invoicing is available with FreshBooks. This integration can be used in conjunction with the other payment tools. Collect payments with PayPal, and create an invoice with FreshBooks all within the same form!
The most popular choices for JotForm users are PayPal, Stripe, Authorize.Net and Purchase Order.
Available payment form types
JotForm covers a wide array of payment structures. In just minutes you can set up any one of the following payment options in your form.
Fixed and variable donations payments
Calculated amount based on user selections and inputs
Check out this article to see basic payment form examples.
Common Configuration Options
Adding email order confirmations
You can setup an email Autoresponder on form to automatically send a form user an email confirmation after they have submitted the form. Email templates are fully customizable.
Coupons, Taxes and Shipping
Adding unique order numbers
There are multiple options available, but using the Unique ID autoincrement widget is the most common. It can be used to assign unique IDs to every submission received.
Calculated amount based on user selections and inputs
Sometimes you want to have real time, dynamic payment forms. In this case, we can use the Form Calculation widget to calculate the total amount based on user selections and inputs. Then, we can use the calculated amount on the form payment tool.
To illustrate this, let’s create a very basic form example. In this example, we assign our prices (calculation values) to Radio Button items and add a Text Box input for an optional additional donation. These to gifs illustrate how to set this up.
Once the calculation part is done, we pass the calculated amount to the form payment tool.
Implementing stock limit option
If you are selling one item per submission order, then you can set a submissions limit on form. The form will be simply disabled once the number of allowed submissions is reached.
b. If this is a multi-item form, it is possible to use multiple Inventory widgets in combination with Form Calculation widget and one of the Payment Tools. The Inventory widget fields will be used as separate products and then calculated together with the Form Calculation widget. See the example below.
Loading product images in lightbox
We display small form products images by default, but you can easily make them clickable (enlargeable). Just drag and drop a Product Lightbox widget to your form and you are all set.
This is how it would look on form.
Authorize only payments
Are you interested in two-step payments? It is possible to authorize payment and capture it later with an “authorize only” integration type. The authorize only payments are supported by PayPal, Stripe and Authorize.Net.
Using gateways that can emulate Authorize.Net
If you want to use a payment processing service that is not currently supported but can emulate Authorize.Net, then you may still be able to use it with JotForm. The following services support Authorize.Net emulation, so we can send the transactions to them.
To do so, open up the Authorize.net payment field’s properties, and select the emulator option.
