Credit Card Authorization & Capture
BarCharts uses a delayed order fulfillment process and typically makes an authorization at checkout equal to the total purchase price in $ USD. It enables BarCharts to modify the original authorization amount due to order changes (such as taxes, shipping, or item availability) that occur after the buyers place the initial order.
When you the buyer approves an authorization, the buyer's balance can be placed on hold for a 29-day period to ensure the availability of the authorization amount for capture. BarCharts can reauthorize a transaction only once, up to 115% of the originally authorized amount (not to exceed an increase of $75 USD).
After a successful authorization (or reauthorization), merchant will honor authorized funds for three days, but merchant cannot ensure that 100% of the funds will be available. A day is defined as the start of the calendar day on which the authorization or reauthorization was made (from 12AM PST to 11:59PM PST).
