Payment action

Indicates how each payment transaction is handled based on the selection, including:

  • Authorize: Ensures that the customer’s card is in good standing and has sufficient funds to cover the purchase. An authorization transaction places a hold on the customer’s funds for the amount of the transaction, for settlement at a later date. You can use Magento’s built-in function to capture an authorization, as described in Capture only.
  • Authorize and Capture: Ensures that authorization and capture take place simultaneously. Capture is the process of claiming the funds that were authorized, that is, initiating the transfer of funds from the customer’s account to your merchant bank account.

Sort Order
