Order Form Types

September 15, 2021

Why Use Order Forms?

Forms gather important data for your business. An Order form lets you grow a customer base, see your purchase funnel, conversion rates, and much more. For example, if you have info about customers with unsuccessful payments, you’ll be able to email back on why they’ve given up on purchasing your product resulting in invaluable feedback.

Which Order Form Type Should I Use?

It depends on your business and goals. If you know what each order type does, you’ll easily be able to do the rest. There are 6 types of order forms you can create with Jotform which will most definitely cover any of your needs. Here’s a short list to get a better idea of order form types. Don’t forget to check out the details of each down below.

  2. One product with multiple choices
  3. Multiple products with multiple choices
  4. Single choice recurring subscription

One Product with Single Choice

If you have an e-book, a downloadable program, or a unique item and want to sell it online, using this payment type is perfect for you. On your form, the user is not asked to choose an item directly from your form. Instead, they’ll be able to purchase your product after they fill out your form.

A workaround to display your product on this particular order type.

If you’d like the user to choose the product on your form, a workaround would be to add a new $0 product to your form. This way, your users can choose if they would like the product or not without having to complete your form.

One Product with Multiple Choices

This is relatively the same as #1 above but gives more flexibility to the customer. Additionally, your customers will see their product choices on your form and select one product on the spot.
