Question: I've enabled the module but it does not display in my client portal.
Answer: This module does not support the currency you attempt to display it in, please use background currency conversion.

Question: How does this implementation work? Would HostBill store customer CreditCard? Or store Token?
Answer: This implementation of CIM does not store neither credit card nor the token. It sends the customer data to but does not save token in HostBill. It stores token/profile at side, so it will be reused (customer profile will not be re-created each time). Customer needs to initiate payments (login to HostBill and click "Pay Now" to pay for due invoice) using this method.
