    I was wondering if I could use the date picker for the user to input only month and year, as expiration of a credit card.

    We do have a date picker that allows for selecting only month and year.  It is formatted quite a bit differently from the regular date picker:

    Please note that we do not allow for the collection of credit card details through forms.  As per our terms of use:

    Collecting Sensitive Information. You may not use the JotForm to collect certain types of sensitive information, including but not limited to credit card information and any type of login credentials. You may collect some sensitive information such as social security numbers or driver’s license numbers, but you are required to use best security practices of JotForm including SSL and Encrypted Forms features. You are solely responsible for compliance with any data protection and privacy laws and rules applicable to the sensitive information.

    We have recently needed to become much strict on this due to becoming PCI compliant.  This required removing any currently stored credit card data from our system.  I would recommend removing and credit card fields from forms.

    If you require payment authorization, that can be done through one of our many payment processors:

    Thanks you for the answer about date picking
    re: sensitive information - I actually was looking initially for a way
    to translate the built-in form for credit card processing. those Fields
    aren't included in that section of the form itself [settings, show more
    options, edit], so I searched here:
    and found an example in hebrew with a work around asking to fill in
    fields with the credit card number and expiration date.
    I don't see it now, maybe you took it down since then?
    But I do see a diffident work around now - asking to call them back to
    get the necessary information - so i guess that's what I'll do too.

    We'll continue our conversation about the payment field translations on a separate thread:

    I'll reply to you there shortly.
