The website disables the autofill feature by specifying "autocomplete=off".
Interesting - I will start checking for that before submitting any others.
Reporting an issue with Square ( invoices. This is where a vendor who uses square sends an invoice via email. The payer clicks on the link and lands on a website pre-populated with the correct price, and with form fields for credit / debit card payment. See attached image. The form autofill DID recognize the forms and give the option for autofill, but it filled the expiration date incorrectly. You can see that it populated mine w/ 20/20 (for day/month, which is obviously not correct... unless we start counting to Twentober :P ). 

I deleted my other info before taking the screengrab, but it was correctly filled. To replicate someone will have to receive an invoice from a square account in this way. 

This seems relatively important compared to an individual website's payment pages because many vendors use Square as a payment platform, but you may know of other considerations that affect priority.
