    Capture card information and charge it later

    Asked by selvecchio85 on February 06, 2015 at 03:13 PM
    How can credit card information be collected without charging the card so it doesn't violate the Jotform Terms of use (This  cannot be done through a payment processor)?

    It is possible to collect credit card information without charging it. It is normally used if you are selling items that needs approval wherein you can capture the payment information and charge them later.

    You need to use a payment processor in order to do that. Because if you don't, then our anti-phishing tool will automatically suspend or disable your account.

    Here's a guide on How to Enable Payment Authorization.



    Hope this helps. Thank you!
