2 years, 4 months ago
I’ve added a shipping amount in the order after the authorization has been sent which changes the amount of the total. When the order is marked complete, the additional amount is not being charged – only the original amount.
I think that’s a problem with the Authization and Capture “standard” you can only capture up to the amount that your authorized.
You can probably tell why, this could lead to fraud.
You’d have to create a new charge I imagine.
So, how do restaurants incorporate tips? Do they authorize for more than the total to make sure they get their tips?
I don’t think so, so when you use square you put it at the point of sale, so that’s obvious, perhaps when a card is present you can get some different rules.
Perhaps someone more familiar with this could chime in.
