Capture or Authorise?

Windcave supports two transaction types – Purchase and Auth. The Gravity Forms Windcave add-ons call them Capture and Authorise, terminology used in most other payment integrations.

Capture processes the payment immediately. Authorise holds the amount on the customer’s card for processing later.

Authorise transactions can be completed manually in Payline. Perform a transaction search, and look for its Complete button.
