# Credit Cards
Opening an account is generally a straight-forward online process although it does require verifying your identity so you can process charges for the Organization you represent.
Until a credit card processing account is connected, no credit card features will be enabled on the website or payment pages.
Auctria does not support capturing raw credit card numbers. All integrated card processing is handled securely, in a PCI compliant manner, through the connected payment processor.
Once a credit card number has been entered, it is impossible to retrieve the original card number again. Cards can be registered against a bidder, and charged in the future, but you cannot see the number.
# Other Payment Processors
If you have an account with another payment processor like Square, or PayPal, these can not be connected to Auctria. You can however use them at Checkout, if you enter the payment details directly into their app.
The payments would be recorded in Auctria via the Checkout page in the same way as a cash, or check, payment is handled. See Checkout Payment Options for information on adding "Other" payment methods.
