Capture and authorize payments
A payment is authorized when you hold funds on the customer’s card to be later charged. When this payment is effectively charged it’s said to be captured.
In our case, payments can be held for a maximum of 5 days before a capture, if not the payment will be cancelled.
This section is where payments are charged to customers.
To create a payment click on the Add New payment button, a new window opens
Fill in the required fields and click on Add Charge.
- Select a customer
- Enter the amount
- Enter a description
- Choose a card as payment method
- Choose whether the payment will be authorized or captured by checking or not the Capture Payment checkbox
- Confirm the payment.
- Once the payment has been created, an invoice is created with all the information about the purchase and customer name.
