Capture (or Clearing and settlement)

A payment that was already authorised by the payment processor must be captured to be completed (this is the act of transferring the reserved funds from shopper to merchant).

Adyen enables manual capture (both in the Customer Area or with the use of API calls), or automatic capture (by default, 3 days after an authorisation was made). It is also possible to make a partial capture, or cancel a payment. Captures, cancels, and refunds together are called modifications, since they modify the state of an authorised payment request.
