How do I set up Paypal Pro to authorize instead of charge?

    I would love to have the payments collected through Paypal Pro "authorize" payment but not charge them until I accept payment. 

    I saw that Jotform has a "Pending" submissions area and wasn't sure if that also hangs the payment or if that is separate.

    If this is something I must do on the Paypal side, then that's fine, I just want to know if it's possible and any suggestions.

    No, it is not possible to just authorize a payment and not accept it.

    The pending submissions are useful to see users how filled the form but did not complete the payment.
