Thanks to user requests and suggestions, we have added an option for Authorize Only for credit cards being processed by Authorize.net and RentPayment (Yapstone). This allows you to verify the card is still valid by putting a hold on funds (authorize only). The hold can later be voided, or a charge can be created, up to the amount of the prior authorization.
This feature is used by clicking the Authorize Only button after entering the amount you want to authorize.
When successful, the authorized amount appears in the log of payments below (but does not affect the amount actually paid):
To charge the prior authorized amount, click the blue “Charge…” button.
Then verify the amount you want to charge (up the full amount of the previously authorized amount) and click Charge Card.
To cancel a previously authorized amount click the Void link.
