I am creating a new eCommerce site for a client and they need to delay charging their customers' credit cards until they ship the order.  Their gateway is  I know this option is not available through BC even though provides the capability (via AUTH_ONLY).

Has anyone  found a work-around for this?

    Unfortunately we do not have an option for this and the only gateway that perhaps could be a workaround is to use PayPal Standard as there's an option to manually finalize the transaction when ready. 




    Kind regards,

    There may be a way to do it within your gateway interface. For example I can set my Moneris to do the transaction but not process it until I process it manually. But this setting is in my Gateway settings not the BC settings.


    I am not familiar with how works though but have a look for something like that. Unfortunately it is an all or nothing solution though. If that is set then all transactions are set to have to be manually processed.

    Do you guys know if this works with PayPal Pro?

    We are in a similar situation and need to have all transactions authorized only, then charge the customer maybe using BC CRM with the actual amount once it is finalized?

    Just an update. I was not able to do this with PayPal Pro.
