    With your encryption form can I take credit card details as security only not processing

    Asked by SBellamy on August 03, 2015 at 10:39 PM

    I have read quite a few threads on this subject and am a little confused.  All I want to do is to take credit card details from prospective guests as security for a booking, process them if necessary offline.  All details to be destroyed after the guest stays.  Thanks

    Unfortunately our terms of services does not allow the collection and storing of credit card information with our forms.

    You can achieve this using our payment widgets then setting the payment processing to manual authorization, kindly refer to this guide for details on how to achieve this
