Auth-Capture Payments

📘

An Auth/Capture transaction consists of two transactions:

1- An auth transaction allows you to hold "Authorize" a certain amount from your customer's card.
2- A capture transaction that allows you to capture the held amount or less than it.

If your business model requires a similar payment scenario, please ask your technical contact for an "auth" integration ID, and follow this guide.

1. The authorization transaction

📘

Perform the essential steps mentioned in the payment API flow guide, with the provided "Auth" integration ID.
This transaction will be marked as an "is_auth" transaction.

2. The capture transaction

By using the following API request you can perform a capture transaction:
