    I'm sorry, but no. The same terms and conditions apply because you would be able to see the credit card info when you use your key to decipher the submissions.

    Excerpt from the above guide:

    If we use Encrypted form can we ask for credit card details without payment processor integrations?

    No! This is still forbidden and will lead to account termination just as if you are collecting passwords, Social Security Numbers and similar, per our terms of use.

    Only way to collect credit card information is to use use one of JotForm payment tools. 

    Inside of this articles you can find out more about payment tools and how to set payment form:
