Preauthorization
Check our Function Matrix to find out which payment providers support pre-authorizations.

Definition

Pre-authorization means the reservation of an amount. It is a money guarantee, in which a certain amount is blocked for a predefined period of at least seven days. There is no maximum reservation amount. This depends on the card issuer.

Remarks

  • The amount you want to debit can be lower than the reserved amount, but not higher.
  • The debit of the pre-authorization works with certainty.
  • Preauthorizations take about five days (this duration depends on the issuer).
