What is "payment action"?

Payment Action is an option that allows you to set how you will charge your customers' cards. It is available for many payment gateways: Authorize.NetPaypal Payflow link and others. 

This option has two values:


The payment gateway checks a customer's card balance. If it is enough to pay for the order, it return a positive response. Otherwise, it returns a failed attempt. Customer is not charged automatically, gateway just checks if the transaction is possible and if there is enough money on the card balance. To actually charge the customer, store owner logins to their account with the payment gateway and clicks a special button. Only after that the payment gateway takes the money from the customer's card.
