What is pre-authorisation?
The pre-authorisation function allows you to authorise and hold funds on a customer’s credit card for a period of up to seven days. A pre-authorisation will not debit a customer’s account until a completion transaction is processed at a later date. Each ‘transaction’ consists of two parts: the pre-authorisation and the completion.
