Announcing JotForm's Integration with Braintree for Payment Forms

November 23, 2015
Said by some to be the “future of PayPal,” popular payment platform Braintree is quickly becoming the tool of choice for consumers and businesses alike. An acquisition and subsidiary of PayPal, Braintree gives you the latest in payment prowess, if not the market leading user experience. Dubbed by insiders as a response to Stripe's competing service, Braintree thrives on what it does best- processing payments while making account management simple and easy.

JotForm is excited to announce our integration with Braintree, adding it to our growing offering of payment integration platforms. What does that mean? It means you can quickly and easily set up a store, collect donations, or subscriptions using PayPal, Stripe, and now Braintree, among numerous other regionally preferred payment vendors.

How It Works

If you know how to set up a payment form with JotForm, you already know how to set up one with Braintree. If you don’t, then if you know how to drag and drop the Braintree field onto your form and fill out the fields in our easy-to-use wizard. It’s easy. Detailed instructions can be found here.

Why would PayPal make another product that is better than the original PayPal? What is the catch here?? Sounds too good to be true!

What are the benefits of using Braintree over PayPal other than the $50k no-fee window? That's definitely enticing, but we would need a clear features comparison to know if it made sense to switch.

With this integration and the free version of Jotform, are you still limited to 10 payments per month before you need to upgrade to the paid version?

ExpressEnglishDesk (December 24, 2015 at 06:08 AM)

Regarding Jotform's integration payment mechanism for Braintree, how exactly are the form fields for month and date of card expiration formatted?

Does the month field require 2 digits (ex. 03 for March) and the year field 4 digits (ex. 2019)?

Please advise. Thank you.
