When an order is awaiting inventory, authorizations can expire and trigger multiple reauthorizations that lock up the customer’s credit line and cause expense to the seller.
To reduce the cost of these transactions, configurable payment rules offer the following delayed reauthorization choices:
- Delay of Reauthorization - Delay reauthorization after the initial authorization has been created. When the initial authorization expires, no reauthorizations occur until a configurable number of hours before the release date.
- Schedule without Authorization - Forego the initial authorization and wait until a configurable number of hours before the release date to perform an authorization.
Both configuration options are accessible on the Payment Rule screen.
