ScanWritr How To: Do a Credit Card Authorization

Credit card authorization/application forms  can now be filled out on with your mobile device. Get yourself the ScanWritr mobile app, scan it or import it and simply fill it out. See here how it is done step by step.

ScanWritr allows you to quickly sign documents on your mobile device.

To fill out forms and send them, you need to first get it in ScanWritr. This is done either by importing it from an e-mail or directly from a webpage, or by digitizing the physical form. In this how-to article we cover the second case. If you are not sure how you import/open a document in ScanWritr, please see our ‘Open odt format‘ article, since the procedure is exactly the same. So this is how you do it:
