The reason many agents (including myself) insist on a cash transfer of the application fees is that we need to be sure that payment can be made for the application when required, and that the funds are guaranteed available ,especially if there is some sort of deadline.

There are too many potential issues with using the client's credit card. The person lodging the application should be the one making the payment. Doing it any other way would be inefficient and potentially disastrous.
