Transaction Examples: Authorization

Authorization

The Authorization transaction is typically used when a merchant wishes to obtain authorization as a pre-approval, with actual purchase of goods or services occurring later during the fulfillment process. When the authorization is submitted, the issuer reduces the cardholder’s “open to buy” amount until that transaction is captured or the authorization expires. An example is when online retailers initiate an Authorization transaction to guarantee funding by the card issuer prior to the shipment/delivery (i.e., fulfillment) of the goods. An Authorization is also referred to as an Auth-Only or Pre-Auth transaction.
