Order Form Basics

Last Update: September 9, 2017

Services, such as PayPal, Stripe, Braintree, Authorize.net etc., allow you to collect payments from your websites. What they don't provide is integrated order forms where you can ask any kind of questions to your customer.

For example, if you're selling a service, you'd want customers to enter details about their industry, needs, interests etc. We help you setup payment integrated forms in minutes using a simple wizard.

Example use cases using Order Forms:

🔘 Get donations for your cause

🔘 Sell products directly from your website

🔘 Get recurring payments for memberships/services

🔘 Sell registrations like concerts, seminars, special events

🔘 Sell e-books, PDF reports, white papers on a landing page

JotForm's Integrated Payment Gateways:

You can access these by clicking the ADD FORM ELEMENT icon then navigate to PAYMENTS tab.

Things to Know Before Using Payment Integrations:

1. First, you need to create or have an account with the payment processor you're about to use.

2. Some payment gateways, such as PayPal standard, do not allow collecting credit card information on your own page, so your forms will simply redirect users to these sites to complete payments.

3. Compare the options - Dwolla, in particular, is a great choice for USA-based businesses as it offers to accept payments without fees.

Other good options could be Square, 2checkout or Worldpay. Still undecided? Try reading this blog post: Which Payment Processor is Right for Your Business

Now that we've got the basics handled, let's go on learning the types of order forms we can use on JotForm.

    Can JotForm only be connected with the payment gateways listed in the article? We are considering using Wells Fargo as a payment merchant and need to know if that would be compatible with JotForms. I really like the flexibility you offer! Thank you!

    I create a form with authorize.net, but when customers go to the form it's not a secured site. How do I make my form secured?

    Creating the form is easy and works great. However when you get the email, you only get part of the form info and the payment never show on the authorize.net portal

    Can JotForm be connected with the Bank of America payment gateway, Global Gateway/Link Point? We would like to use your product, but it had to connect to this gateway. Is there a way to modify the html code to make this happen? If so, can you provide us with some directions?

    I am selling event tickets. I have it set up to purchase the ticket, but paypal doesn't allow them the opportunity to purchase multiple tickets in one payment. Is there a way to do this on jotform?

    I have an account with AlertPay but there is no option to use AlertPay on JotForm. Can any body help me to resolve this issue

  • Mike Chern

    Authorize.net has multiple choices of developer APIs, and it sounds like your support uses their DPM or AIM choices. They also have "Simple Checkout" which is one item, some qty, and redirected with their button to their site for processing. Can their "Simple Checkout" button be embedded into a form?

  • mkaske

    How can I customize the display of payment items? For example I would like to make the price display larger and in bold so that people can better see the prices on things.

    Hello,

    I'm sorry, but I can't, for the love of all that's holy, figure out how to create this sort of form with the Payment Form wizard:

    CALCULATE TUITION:
    choice 1: 20 hours per week @ $300/wk
    OR (i.e. radio button)
    choice 2: 25 hours per week @ $340/wk
    THEN
    enter: number of weeks to book
    CALCULATE THE TOTAL PRICE

    My problem is, when I try to add the second option, it no longer let's me enter the price for it. While at the same time, it wants me to enter the price for the product itself, i.e. for the "Tuition". But without choosing one of the options, there is no price to show.

    Hello ardy0689,

    Thank you for the form you created for me. But I still can't figure out completely how you created it.

    I imported it at least 10 times and then tried to go through the payment wizard, then I tried to make it from the scratch...still no luck.

    I got as far as realizing that you used the "single product" option, but I can't figure out how to get the subtotal in there.

    Also, this is just the tuition. You made it show the radio-buttons by making it 2 separate products. But what if there actually is another product? Specifically, $50 Registration Fee. Everybody has to pay that (i.e. checkbox), and then choose the number of hours per week to calculate the tuition.

    Is this even possible? I tried to add another product (the Reg Fee), but it showed an error message, saying that I can't add anymore products.

    I'm still hoping it's somehow possible to show both the mandatory Reg Fee and the Tuition options.

    Thank you so much for your time!
    Ondrej

  • Ian bodsworth

    Hi, is there any chance you could add Pay Vector as a gateway option? Thanks

  • Jason

    Please add support for BluePay. I'd really appreciate it and know I am not the first to ask you all this...people have been asking for years. Thanks!

  • BBlasdel

    We have payments that processed through Braintree that do not show corresponding Orders. Can we search by Customer ID to see what happened to an order? Thank you!
