Collecting Credit Card Data

  1. Hi-

    I have an odd request from a photographer client who wants to collect the credit card number without running it through a payment gateway so he can punch the number into his terminal manually after he's made sure the date is available.

    Assuming he's got an SSL certificate set up. Is this doable, and what is the best way to go about it.

    Thanks for any suggestions!

  2. You can collect any information you want with Gravity Forms. How it's secured and stored and whether or not it's compliant with any sort of industry requirements is all up to you.

    If he has an SSL cert, the information should be OK in transit. The database will contain the data so that will need to be secured. The Gravity Forms entry will have the data, so the wp-admin will need to be secured with SSL as well.

    It's doable. At it's simplest, you can just collect the credit card information from anyone who will submit it. Complying with the rest is up to you and your client.
