How do I set payments to “authorise only”?

By default JRNI will transfer funds from the customer’s account to the business account when the payment is made. However, with certain online payment providers, it is possible to instead perform an “authorise” when the customer enters their card details, and to “capture” and transfer the funds at a later point; this can be done either manually through the payment provider, or automatically by JRNI at the minimum cancel date. 

The following payment providers allow authorise only payments:

  • PayPal Pro
  • Sage Pay
  • Authorize.Net
  • SecurePay (Australia only)
  • WorldPay
  • WorldPay (Hosted)
  • Payment Express 
  • Realex
  • USA ePay
  • CardSave
  • DataCash
  • eWAY (Australia only)
  • Global Iris
  • NetBanx
  • Stripe

To set payment to authorise only, set up your chosen payment provider with your JRNI account. 

Click the Cog/Settings icon > Advanced Settings > Configure Online Payments. Then tick the checkbox Authorise Only.

Once you have done this, you will also have the option to set JRNI to not automatically take payment on the minimum cancel day.

Click the Save button, and you will be switched to authorisation and capture in place of immediate transfer.
