form in modal not submitting with jquery

Im trying to create a modal for using stripe in but I cant get the form to submit. I don't know why jQuery cant seem to reference the form id. When I reference the form id I the code does not seem to recognise it yet when I reference the parent div and use a

referencing the form it seems to reference the form then. Is this a quirk yet jQuery or have I some silly implementation

<!-- Trigger the modal with a button -->
<button type="button" class="btn btn-default btn-lg" data-toggle="modal" data-target="#cardModal">Update card Details</button>
<!-- 'Update' Modal -->
<div id="cardModal" class="modal fade" role="dialog">
<div class="modal-dialog">
<!-- Modal content-->
<div class="modal-content">
<!-- Modal header -->
<div class="modal-header">
<button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="modal">&times;</button>
<h4 class="modal-title">Update card details</h4>
<!-- Modal body -->
<div class="modal-body">
<from action="/settings/card" method="post" id="updateCard" class="form-horizontal">
<div class="form-group has-feedback">
<label class="control-label col-sm-2">Card Number:</label>
<div class="col-sm-6">
<input type="text" class="form-control" data-stripe="number" required>
<i class="form-control-feedback glyphicon glyphicon-pencil"></i>
<div class="form-group has-feedback">
<label class="control-label col-sm-2">Name on card:</label>
<div class=" col-sm-6">
<input type="text" class="form-control" data-stripe="name" required>
<i class="form-control-feedback glyphicon glyphicon-user"></i>
<div class="form-group has-feedback">
<label class="control-label col-sm-2">Expiry Date:</label>
<div class="col-sm-4">
<div class="form-inline">
<div class="form-group">
<input type="text" class="form-control" data-stripe="exp_month" placeholder="Month" required/>
input type="text" class="form-control" data-stripe="exp_year" placeholder="Year" required />
<div class="form-group has-feedback">
<label class="control-label col-sm-2">CVC:</label>
<div class=" col-sm-2">
<input type="password" class="form-control" data-stripe="cvc" required>
<i class="form-control-feedback glyphicon glyphicon-shopping-cart"></i>
<!-- Form Submit -->
<button type=submit id="submitP" class="btn btn-default btn-lg">Submit</button>
<!-- Modal footer -->
<div class="modal-footer">
<button type="button" class="btn btn-default" data-dismiss="modal">Exit</button>

As can be seen above I have the #cardModal(div) -> #updateCard(form) -> #submitP(Submit). I cannot reference the the updateCard unless i Use something like
$('#cardModal').on('click', 'updateCard')
but this is not what I want because I just want to access the form when the user presses submit. Th reason I want this is because I want to add a stripetoken to the form which can be seen below

// Before the form submits
//Disable the button
$('#updateCard').find('.btn btn-default btn-lg').prop('disabled', true);
//Create a token for the user
Stripe.card.createToken($('#updateCard'), stripeResponseHandler);
// Prevent the form from being submitted:
return false;

function stripeResponseHandler(status, response) {
console.log('in response handler')
// Grab the form:
var $form = $('#cardModal updateCard');
//If there is an error
if (response.error) { // Problem!
// Show the errors on the form:
$('<div id="paymentError" class="alert alert-danger">'+response.error.message+'</div>').insertBefore('#submit');
$('#updateCard').find('.btn btn-default btn-lg').prop("disabled", false ); // Re-enable submission
} else {
// Token was created!
// Get the token ID:
var token =;
// Insert the token ID into the form so it gets submitted to the server:
$form.append($('<input type="hidden" name="stripeToken">').val(token));
// Submit the form:


CHECK The FORM Declaration U mentioned it as FROM not it won't invoke submit function change it to form..

                <from action="/settings/card" method="post" id="updateCard" class="form-horizontal">

Change it like this:

                <form action="/settings/card" method="post" id="updateCard" class="form-horizontal">
