    You cannot collect credit card details using regular text fields. Please check our terms of use.

    You need to use a payment processor and disable the "Charge Customer Immediately" option. This is available for PayPal, Stripe and Authorize.Net.

    Please refer to this user guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/292-How-to-Enable-Payment-Authorization.

    Hope that helps. Thank you.
