The delayed reauthorization feature controls the number of payment reauthorizations that may occur when scheduling orders against backordered or pre-ordered inventory.
While waiting for the ship date to approach, payment authorizations can expire and reauthorize several times, locking up customers’ credit lines. This also costs money when interfacing with a payment gateway. Two delayed reauthorization configuration options limit the number of reauthorizations to configurable points in the order cycle.
Delayed authorization is not supported for draft orders.
