    Capture CC information to be charged manually

    Asked by pictureitphotobooths on October 09, 2015 at 06:50 PM


    I am needing something similar. We require a $100 deposit upon reservation of our services. Once the service has been completed, the final balance is charged. We normally go through Square and capture the customer's credit card information upon reservation and manually charge both the deposit (to reserve their date) and the final balance (the day of their event). Is there a way to do this?

    Since it is not possible to manually capture the CC fields using the standard fields (which is against our terms), we highly recommend using the Stripe authorization feature as discussed on this thread.

    Here's a step by step instruction: http://www.jotform.com/help/347-How-to-Capture-Stripe-Payment-Authorization?

    To summarize, using the Stripe Payment Tool with "manual charged" enabled, this will capture the customer’s payment information and keep it on your stripe dashboard so you can charge them later with whatever amount necessary. You can charge it using the link provided by Jotform or via Stripe Dashboard.

    If you have further questions, do let us know.
