➤ Stripe warning “Sending credit card numbers directly to the Stripe API is generally unsafe”

The ‘Built-in’ form method in BookingPress > Settings > Payments > Stripe is intended for older version accounts and uses a legacy method that may not comply with modern security standards. To address the tokenize method error with credit cards and ensure safer handling of payment information, it’s recommended to use the ‘SCA (POPUP)’ method instead. Here’s how to do it:

1. Switch to ‘SCA (POPUP)’ Method:
Navigate to BookingPress > Settings > Payments > Stripe and select the ‘SCA (POPUP)’ method for payment form integration. This method utilizes a secure popup interface to tokenize credit card information, enhancing security and compliance with modern standards.
