Creating Payment Forms with JotForm

What sounds better to you: a web form that rakes in fistfuls of money, or a form that doesn’t? Whether you’re looking to collect donations for a cause or sell a product, it helps to have an easy way to set up and manage payments. That’s where JotForm comes in, a form-building platform that enables TemplateMonster users to create and embed powerful forms straight onto their websites.

For nearly a decade, JotForm has been the go-to choice for scores of organizations that needed an easy way to build web forms. So it only makes sense that they included payments into their incredibly simple method for building online forms.

Here are a few simple steps to get you started!

Build your form. It’s fun!

With JotForm, you can start by choosing a form template (there are more than 8,000 of them), or with a clean slate to build your own from scratch. Either way, it’s painless to drag-and-drop the fields you need to create the perfect form in just a matter of minutes.

Select which payment provider you’d like to integrate with

On the page where you’re editing your form, check out the “Payment Tools” button on the sidebar. From there, select from one of more than a dozen payment processing tools to make collecting money easier on your site, including PayPal, Stripe, and now Braintree.

If you’re already signed up with one of the payment providers listed, it just takes a few clicks to get on your way collecting money with JotForm.

Setting up your payments

For example, here’s a how you’d go about setting up a PayPal integration with JotForm. You just need the email you’re using for the account.  

Choose whether you’d like to use the integration for selling products, selling subscriptions, or collecting donations.

Then, enter the name of what you’re selling and the price you’re looking to sell it for. After that, save it to move on.

Now you’re up and running! Your form is an unstoppable, robust, payment-collecting machine. That wasn’t so hard, was it?

And yes, it’s really that easy to get up and running with a payment form for your website. You can also use your new payment form as a standalone link to send out to customers or share on social media.

A few helpful tips:

  • Simplify your form for optimal conversions
  • Include images on your payment form
  • Aesthetics matter; match the design of the form to your website and brand with the Form Designer
  • Ditch the “Submit” button for more actionable words, like “Subscribe Today”, “Purchase”, or “Help our cause”

JotForm believes in making online forms simple, whether you’re using them to collect emails, RSVPs, or payments. And the company’s payment integrations make it even easier.
