    Is there a way to change the Reference number to something else that matches another accounting system?

    Thank you for this easy-to-follow guide!
    I forgot to ask: what are the fees associated with JotForm? Initial set up fee, monthly fee, integration fee, etc.

    Thank you for your time!

    Since I already have a FD account, can I use this method of payment and choose "authorize only" at the time the Order Form is sent so I can charge an amount after weighed and shipping is calculated? Thanks. phyllis
