    Thank you for contacting us.

    We do not allow payment information collection in plain form fields. However, with a Stripe Integration on form, you can collect Authorization payments to charge your customers later. For example, you can set a $0.01 USD authorization payment and charge a custom amount later.

    Please see the next guide: 

    How to Capture Stripe Payment Authorization
