    It is against our Terms of use to collect credit card info on plain text field.

    Phishing. You agree that Company may terminate your JotForm Service immediately if a form's purpose is found to be deceptively obtaining: sensitive credit card information, social security numbers, user login credentials, or other sensitive personal information. All these activities are considered as Phishing and any account along with the violating forms will be suspended immediately.

    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.

    Card number, expiration date, security codes and card holder name are considered critical information and cannot be collected on plain text fields. The only services allowed to collect such data are those that are DSS/PCI certified.

    If you want to have a payment field inside of a form, you have to use one of our payment tools. Inside of this articles you can find out more about the payment tools and how to set a payment form:




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