WPForms is built specifically for WordPress. Whether it is accepting payments from the form itself or collecting signature of the user filled by mouse on desktop or screentouch on smartphone, WPForms will do.
1. WPForms Lite (free)
With WPForms lite, you can start free. The lite version of WPForms is best used for creating a simple contact form, newsletter signup form, or suggestion form. There will be no watermark or link pointing to WPForms site, unlike JotForm and many other online form builders. You can also start with Blank Form while adding fields as per your need but with restrictions. Fields like Phone fall under Fancy Fields and not allowed under WPForms free lite plan. So is the case with Payment fields.
