    I've registered with Stripe.

    Linked accounts

    I need to be able to take payment authorizations. Not actually charge clients card.

    when I get their credit card info, I use to purchase services

    Is my account set up correctly to collect clients payment info?

    Your form is already setup for payment authorization. The key option that needs to be looked at to enable this is the CHARGE CUSTOMER IMMEDIATELY OPTION option under the ADDITIONAL GATEWAY SETTINGS section of the payment field.

    If this option is set to NO, this would mean your users/clients won't be charged immediately as soon as they submit the form. You can then charge them at a later time through Stripe. This and more were discussed in great detail on the article linked below.
