If you do not process your credit cards in real time, and use "Credit
Card With Simple Validation" you must make sure to charge the card as soon as
possible. When you have successfully charged the card, delete the credit card
number, or a significant portion of it and click update. Keeping the numbers on your
server is a security risk and violates most merchant account agreements. You may lose your
merchant account if the credit card company discovers that you store customer's credit
card info on your server. You do not want someone to hack into your server and steal your
customers' credit card info.
