What is the difference between manual and automatic capture?
What’s a capture?
A capture is the transfer of reserved funds from a shopper to a business after the authorization of a transaction. We offer 2 types of capture: automatic and manual.
With automatic capture, payments are captured automatically, based on your capture delay. Capture delay is the time period between payment authorization and capture.
By default, payments are captured immediately after authorization. Setting up a delay between the authorization and the automatic capture of the payment allows you to cancel the authorization, for example when it turns out that an item is out of stock. Read our documentation to change the capture delay.
Note: the default setting is automatic capture. Activate manual capture in your Customer Area.
Tip: find more details on how to manage your captures.
