    Creating a field in a report that will indicate type of charge card

    Asked by JFedGMW on March 29, 2017 at 03:44 PM

    We need to know what kind of charge card was used in an online transaction. Our payment gateway is Square. What are your suggestions for a method to have the person's charge card appear in the report? I'm thinking that if we can somehow pickup from the first digit in the card number and pass that info to a field. then we would be able to identify the charge card as either MasterCard, Visa, or American Express.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    The credit card account data are considered sensitive data. For security and confidentiality reasons, the details of CC account will not be available for access within the Form Builder.

    This was the reason you cannot view the details anywhere within the Form Builder or in the submission data of your form (even on Reports).

    You can just use the Transaction ID# data in the payment submission to fetch the payment account details in the payment gateway. This is the safest and natural way to review the payment data.

    Let us know how we can be of further assistance.
