Hi there,

i notice that the checkout form validation only happens after a page refresh. Any reason you guys don't use javascript validation on the fields instead?

Thanks!

    Javascript validation would only handle for a subset of the validation required. Further, even with js validation, you still need it on the server-side which makes it possible for validation collision.

    Well couldn’t you do basic input validation like formatting, etc before submitting the form for real-world data validation? Seems like that’s how everyone else does it, for it makes the whole experience smoother and faster and avoids a number of unnecessary refreshes. Maybe use something like http://bradfrost.com/blog/post/single-field-credit-card-input-pattern/  https://creditcardjs.com or http://jessepollak.github.io/card/ for the cc form as well?
