        Product information
      • Add custom tax - in addition to setting the product name (Description), quantity (Qty), Amount per unit, and the optional stock keeping unit ID (Code), you can also specify per product line item whether it is taxable (with current value of 17%, as per Israeli VAT) or not (0% tax rate), by checking the Amount is taxable box.
    • (optional) Add the Merchant Reference to identify the transaction or link this transaction to an order ID generated by your own inventory system.
    • Select the available Payment methods. If you want to perform a sale transaction (authorization + capture), check the Automatically send transaction for capture checkbox. If you leave the Automatically send transaction for capture checkbox unchecked, you have to manually perform the authorization and the capture. Refer to the table below for more information:

      A pre-authorization reserves funds for authorization on customer's account or card, to ensure that the shopper will be able to pay when the invoice is due.


      AUTHORIZATION An authorization transaction puts funds on hold. An AUTHORISATION refers to funds on hold which cannot be adjusted - also referred to as a final authorization.
      CAPTURE A capture of funds for a final authorization. The money is withdrawn from the customer’s account.

      A single step transaction which is automatically captured. This can be thought of as an authorization and capture combined.

      This is often also referred to as a "purchase" transaction in some regions. You can opt for the Authorization + Capture (Sale) step for subscriptions, digital goods, etc.

      Note: As a merchant, you might prefer to choose Authorization and Capture separately if you are unsure of the availability of your products in stock.

    • Go to the Customer Details section and fill in the specific information (first name/last name/ email address - used to send the payment document).

    Once the payment settings have been completed, click on Continue to link settings to proceed.
