A form can provide vital data about your company’s operations. For example, you can use an Order form to grow a customer database, monitor your sales funnel, determine your conversion rates, and much more. You can use the information to send personalized messages to customers who had difficulty paying for your product so you can learn why they stopped buying it.
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.
- One product with a single choice
- One product with multiple choices
- Multiple products with multiple choices
- Single choice recurring subscription
- Multiple choice recurring subscriptions
- Donations with a single entry field
One Product with a 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. If you have only one product in your Product List element, the user will not be asked to choose an item directly from your form. Instead, they’ll be able to purchase your product right after they fill out your form.
If you’d like to show the product on your form, you can click on the Click here to Show instead, after that – My Products field will be shown and available for the selection.
One Product with Multiple Choices
This is relatively the same as #1 above but gives more flexibility to the customer. Your customers will see your list of products on the form and can select one product from the list.
Multiple Products with Multiple Choices
You’ve got lots of products in your hand. Maybe you own a beauty shop, bakery, or winery. Showcase any of your products with this payment type for bulk purchases.
Single Choice Recurring Subscription
Do you offer a service and want recurring payments for it? Think about professional online courses. You’ll pay for a period until the course ends and you’re done. Using this type of order form is usually preferred by professional services.
Click on the Click here to Show button to show the product in the form, after that – My Products field can be seen in the form and available for the selection.
Multiple Choice Recurring Subscriptions
Got multiple choices for your subscription options? We’ve prepared a pricing plan example with just a payment form and it looks really good including a 30-day free trial option. This order type is perfect for SaaS (Software as a Service) businesses.
Donations with a Single Entry Field
Asking for donations is a simple way to collect payments for your cause. Set up a minimum fee, put a fixed price, or leave it at your visitor’s discretion.
