What is authorization and charging?

These two distinct events take place whenever a customer initiates an online payment using a credit card. In most cases, they happen at the same time. But they don’t have to, and in some situations, you as the merchant may want to separate them depending on the use case.

Authorization

Authorization happens when the payment processor contacts the cardholder’s bank to verify that they have enough money to cover the charges owed, and that the card is active.

At this point, the funds have not yet transferred from the customer’s bank to the business, but they are, in essence, reserved for that purpose. 

Authorizations are temporary. Typically, they expire after seven days, which means no money changes hands if the charging process doesn’t begin before expiration.

Charging

Charging, also known as the settlement of the payment, happens when the money actually changes hands between the customer’s bank and the merchant. Your bank instructs the payment processor to collect funds from the customer’s bank and transfer them to your account.
