    Can your integration with Paypal Pro submit just an Authorization?

    Asked by Farah Barre on October 25, 2013 at 08:59 PM


    We are interested in your service, looks great, but we want to check if we can build a form integrated with Paypal Pro that will submit a payment Authorization only and NOT the capture (ie a delayed capture & not a Sale transaction). We need the ability to capture the payment manually in our Paypal account after we render the service to our customers but we just want to initially allow our customers to submit an X min amount to Authorize their card & validate it.

    Hi Farah,

    Unfortunately, authorization only is not available on Paypal Pro payment however, it is available on Paypal Standard.

    When you add Paypal field to your form, right click on it, Show Properties and set "Yes" on Authorization Only.

    Hope this still helps. Thanks!
