There are five types of credit card transactions that can occur through your BLOX CMS transactions:
Authorize - This transaction only authorizes the transaction, confirming the customer has the correct amount of funds available in their account. The funds are put on hold and are inaccessible to the customer but are never removed from the customer's account. If no action is taken with the authorized funds within a given amount of time (dictated by the payment processor or customer's bank) the funds will be released back to the customer's account and will not be able to be captured.
Debit - A sale transaction which debits monies from the customer’s account.
Credit - (Can only be performed on a Debit or Capture transaction) A refund transaction which credits monies to the customer’s account. The refund amount cannot exceed the original debit/capture amount.
Capture - (Can only be performed on an Authorize transaction) A transaction that will remove monies from the customer’s account that had previously been put on hold due to an authorize transaction.
Void - (Can only be performed on an Authorize transaction) A transaction that Voids out the original Authorization transaction. This will release the authorized funds back into the customer's account.
