Adjusting payment characteristics
- Payment validation mode
The merchant can confirm sending transactions to be captured manually or automatically:
- Automatic validation: payments are captured automatically by the payment server.
- Manual validation: each transaction must be validated using the “validate” function to be sent for capture.
For more information on the “validate” function, see the guide dedicated to transaction management.
As long as the transaction has not been captured, the merchant can change their capture date via the “modify” function, after right-clicking on the transaction.Each transaction that has not been validated by the expected date is considered as expired and will never be captured in the bank.
The validation mode selected by default when creating a payment order can be configured via the Expert Back Office (Settings > Shop > Configuration).
If you want to change the transaction validation mode, select the desired mode from the drop-down list (Automatic or Manual).
- Capture delay
This parameter allows to choose how long payments are kept in the system before they are transmitted to the bank, i.e. captured. It is useful if you want to debit the buyer on the day the order is shipped, for example.
The transaction capture date is defined by the date when the transaction is made, plus the bank capture delay.
The capture delay displayed by default can be configured via the Expert Back Office (Settings > Shop > Configuration menu).
If the default value is not suitable, enter the number of days that correspond to your needs.
- Exp. date of the payment order.
The expiration date is set by default when a payment order is created (see chapter Setting the default expiration date for a payment order for more information).
If you want to change the expiration date of the payment order, choose the new date using the calendar.
