    Does JotForm collect credit card info for event registrations?  If so does it have the option to not charge people until the administrator selects which applicants will be attending the event?  Or does it automatically charge the credit card upon submitting the JotForm?  


    I greatly appreciate your help.  Thanks.

    Hello Trenton,

    Forms made under JotForm have the capacity to accept payments. Depending on which option you will have to set, and depending on the capacity of the payment gateway used, the form may have an option to do authorization only (no payment captured, charging should be done on your account with payment gateway) and/or do a direct charge to the card of the person who made the submission.

    Please take note that you have to use a payment gateway in order for your form to be able to collect payments as we do not allow a mere collection of credit card information because it is against our policy.

    You can learn more about how JotForm collects payments by reading this user guide. However, feel free to still ask us anytime.

    Thanks and warm regards.
