How do authorizations work?

Last Updated: Jan 19, 2017 10:02AM CST
When your customer pays for a transaction, we send the amount to your customer's card issuer for authorization, which protects you by ensuring your customer’s account is in good standing and the customer has money available. The issuer's processor places the amount on ‘hold’ and removes the amount immediately from your customer’s available balance. The hold is released based upon parameters set at the processor (approximately 72 hours for debit cards, the timing varies for credit cards) or when the transaction clears, whichever comes first.
