Cards Pre-authorization

What’s better than instant refunds? Not having to refund at all.

When your customer places an order, you can temporarily block some amount of funds on her card using Pre-authorization. If the order is modified or is canceled within a specific time frame (typically 7-9 days), you can mark the transaction void and the block is lifted.

Pre Authorisation Flow

  • customer makes payment

  • payment gateway holds the money for 7-9 days

  • customer request refunds

  • transaction gets void, refund gets intiated
