Verification before Charging Card (3 posts)

    We are building a site for selling jewelry online and want to be able to call the customer first (for verification) before charging their credit card on certain items. We will be using Paypal.

    Is there a way to have the customer complete the checkout process with Paypal, however the card not be charged, (only for some items) until we perform our validation checking ?

    Once the validation is complete, then we want to have the card charged and complete the order.

    While Paypal does have that capability, you have to check if the Paypal payment module that comes default with WC will allow that or even if you purchase a separate module, you need to check if this function is there.

    For more information on this you can refer to -> https://cms.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/?cmd=_render-content&content_ID=developer/howto_admin_authcapture

    Or, would it be easier to cancel the order if the verification process is negative ?

    Gotta be an easy way to ship items that orders appear suspicious ?
