Which payment methods support separate authorisation and capture?

You can use separate authorisation and capture for the following payment methods:

Adyen expires an authorisation request automatically after:

      • 28 days from the day the payment is authorised, for all major global card networks, except Cartes Bancaires.
      • 12 days from the day the payment is authorised, for Cartes Bancaires.
      • PayPal captures are only guaranteed for three days after the authorisation.

Card schemes too, have their own set of rules on authorisation expiry. Capturing a transaction after the scheme expiry time increases the risk of a failed capture, and may also increase the interchange and/or scheme fees charged for the transaction. 

For more information, refer to Expiry information from major card schemes.
