What operation mode

You need to decide which operation mode you want to run the payment gateway for your business.

Based on these two steps, you can choose between two default operation codes:

  1. Pre-authorization: a pre-authorization transaction that reserves funds on a customer’s credit card. Authorize Only does not charge the card until you perform a Completion (Ticket Only) transaction and/or confirm shipment of the order (using an option available in Reports). Note that authorization reserves funds for varying periods, depending on the issuing card company’s policy. We strongly suggest that you confirm shipment as soon as possible after authorization.
  2. Sale:  this is the most common transaction type which immediately charges a customer’s card or bank account.
