How to Integrate First Data (US) With Jotform

December 7, 2023

First Data is a customizable solution that provides customers with a seamless and familiar online buying experience. They can provide you with everything you need to set up an online store and expand the scope of your business with global payments, mobile-ready checkout, and comprehensive security. It simplifies the connections that make commerce possible for merchants, financial institutions, and their customers.


Jotform’s First Data integration uses the Payeezy Gateway API. Payeezy is only available for US-based merchants. Unfortunately, you can’t use the integration if you’re not registered with First Data’s Payeezy payment platform.

Adding and Setting up First Data in the Form

Create your form if you don’t have one yet, or edit your existing form where you want to integrate First Data and follow the steps below.

  1. In Form Builder, click the Add Form Element button.
  2. Go to the Payments tab.
  3. Click First Data from the list, or drag and drop it to add.
