How the Magento CIM Extension Works

Saving Credit Card Information During Checkout

When a customer makes their first purchase using the CIM payment gateway, they are given a form to enter credit card information.

If customers choose to store the credit card information, the next time they make a purchase they can either enter a new card or choose the one they used previously.
