What if I do not use CLEAR before entering a new Credit Card number for payment?

If you do not use the CLEAR button before entering a new credit card number and process to the payment, the old credit card number will be the one that will be charged.
Whether you are working on VM Desktop or VM Cloud, it is imperative to use the CLEAR button to clear anything VM has already saved.

The Folio will show you the last 4 digits of the new credit card number but the credit card batch report will show you the last 4 of the real credit card that was charged.
