How To Take Pre-authorization Payments From Tyl by NatWest

How does Pre Authorization works

A pre-authorization transaction reserves funds on a customer’s credit card. It 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).

If you would like to set this for your site while using our Tyl by NatWest for WooCommerce, you can set the option labeled as Operation to Pre-authorization. Like so:

(WooCommerce >> Settings >> Payments >> Tyl by NatWest Checkout Settings)

Creating a test purchase

After setting it up, you can proceed in creating a test purchase and have access to the successful orders or transactions within the back office. You can also check out our article regarding how you can do a test payment in test mode.
