    How can I retrieve credit card information?

    Asked by tassy77 on July 26, 2016 at 03:08 PM

    My form has a credit card field showing full card number but now it shows only as follows.


    It looks the number got replaced with ####. Is there any way that can be retrieved?


    Thank you

    Hello Taki,

    We have just implemented a full force restriction on the form asking credit card information. This is extremely prohibited ever since and this also violates our terms.

    From now on, any credit card information collected from the form will be obfuscated. Part of the CC numbers will be replaced with # hash symbol to be specific.

    We strongly suggest to use any of the payment tools that has built in CC fields if you are going to accept online payments. And if you want to charge the CC manually at a later date, simply enable "Payment Authorization".

    Thanks for your understanding.
