Authorization request

An authorization request is a message sent by the payment gateway to the card issuer to obtain the issuer's approval for the transaction.

Usually, the debit is effective only after the transaction capture.

However, certain issuers of prepaid cards debit the authorization amount in real time. If the authorization is not captured before its validity period expires, the amount is re-credited to the account holder's account (see table below).
