The “Anticipated authorizations” service
This service allows to trigger the authorization on D-Δ (see Authorization validity period for each payment method) before the desired capture date at the bank.
In case of refusal by the issuing bank, exclusively for a non-fraud related reason, a process automatically reissues authorization requests until up to 2 days prior the desired capture date at the bank.
The merchant may cancel the transaction or change its amount (only smaller amounts can be entered) and/or the capture date at any moment.
- recurring payments,
- deferred payments,
- installments, other than the first one, in case of an installment payment.
In case of refusal for fraud-related reasons, the transaction is considered as permanently rejected.
