    What is the best way to do the authorization that I have on this page>?It is all setup properly with stripe
    Is my wording proper? Should I authorize only $1.00?You have to access this through reservations and then click yes the reservation is more than 30 minutes away from Burlington, Vt.https://form.jotform.com/92193444776164Any suggestions would be helpful
    Authorization Purposes Only: If your reservation is more than 30 minutes away from Burlington, Vt; We will require you to authorize a credit card with us. There is no need to authorize a card if you are a former customer. We are not charging your credit card at this moment. This is only to secure your reservation. We will only be authorizing $50.00. Please only fill out this credit card information if you are more than 30 minutes away from Burlington, Vt. Authorization $ 50.00

    Thank You

    Since you're using Stripe, settings the Charge Customer Immediately to No should enable the payment authorization. I can see that this is already configured in your Stripe payment field.

    Please be reminded that there's a seven (7) days time limit for you to capture the approvement payments, otherwise, the payment would expire and Stripe will not allow you to capture the payment anymore.

    I think you could only charge the customer for the total amount submitted or approved so you should probably define the total amount you're going to charge for your customers and then capture them at once in your Stripe dashboard or using the link provided by JotForm.

    The problem is there is many different charges, many different destinations. It would be almost impossible to have every destination listed and have that amount approved Sent via the Samsung Galaxy S®6 active, an AT&T 4G LTE smartphone
