    Looking for a payment system where I can charge a customer later.

    Asked by eiermann on November 18, 2014 at 11:09 PM

    Hi there,

    although this question is not 100% related to JotForm, someone may have an idea. I am looking for an online payment service similar to what Kickstarter uses.

    The idea: I want to collect the credit card information and the right to charge the credit card for a specific amount at some point in the future. Why? I prefer to collect payments in cash but in case a customer places a booking and doesn't cancel we should be able to charge the customer since we have to pay a cancellation fee to the provider for the reservation.

    Amazon Payments offers this but the customer would need to have an amazon account. Also there is no integration with Amazon Payments and Jotform yet.

    Thanks to anyone for contributing.

    Cheers,
    Chris

    Hello Chris,

    Have you checked our "Authorization Only" feature already? This will allow you to get the payment with your authorization only and you can charge your customer at a later time. The following guide should help you:  http://www.jotform.com/help/292-How-to-Enable-Payment-Authorization 

    I believe this will solve your problem. You can charge your customer later if they cancel the booking.

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
