    Question about credit card payments

    Asked by PromAngel on December 13, 2016 at 02:25 PM

    I have a few forms I need to create. Due to the amount of duplicates we often receive we prefer to take the credit card payment and process it after the information has been checked.

    Is there anyway to do this with JotForm?

    If you want to charge your users manually at later date, I would suggest you to use one of payment tools that has built in credit card fields like PayPal Pro, Stripe, Authorize.net, Dwolla.
