Authorize transactions only

Now you can pre-authorize transactions that are placed in your online shop and charge them at a later time. With this option enabled the system will pre-authorize a customer's credit card for the value of the goods purchased. You are then required to login to PayPal and complete the transaction by either charging the card (so you can receive payment) or cancelling the transaction altogether. This feature is useful if you carry a limited number of units for each product and you wish to ensure you have stock before taking payment from a customer.

To enable this feature go to: eCommerce->Payment Gateways. You will see a new checkbox in the PayPal Website Standard configuration area.
