    What about a pick up & delivery service?

    What about a pick up & delivery service? I need to be able to authorize payment and then send a bill with the correct amount after the item is picked up and weighed.

    We support 'Authorization & Capture' PayPal payments. However, according to PayPal, the charge can be only increased up to 115% of the originally authorized amount.

    When your buyer approves an authorization, the buyer's balance can be placed on hold for a 29-day period to ensure the availability of the authorization amount for capture. You can reauthorize a transaction only once, up to 115% of the originally authorized amount (not to exceed an increase of $75 USD).

    How to Enable Payment Authorization

    There are no such restrictions for Stripe Authorization transactions. For example, you can authorize $1.00 USD and charge customer later for $100.00 USD.
