    Advanced settings

    PrestaShop Advanced Settings

    • CURL verify host and peer: Enable this setting to avoid plugin requests to time out. Highly recommended if both host and peer are using HTTPS (TLS).
    • Transaction type
      • Pre-auth - Preauthorization acts as a reservation on your cardholder’s account. Once you are able to ship the products and decide to withdraw the amount, you can then capture the payment. Preauthorization allows you more time to capture the payment (it is usually 30 days but this needs to be checked with acquirer, as it might vary depending on card schemes/ merchant category code). Also make sure Verifone supports this transaction type for the acquiring solution you are using.
      • Auth - Authorization also acts as a reservation on your cardholder’s account – that you can capture later on, once you ship the products to your customers. The difference between authorization and preauthorization is that you only have up to 7 days allowed by the time you decide to capture the amount. Here as well, check that Verifone supports this transaction type for the acquiring solution you are using.
      • Sale - The sale transaction implies authorization and capture are done in one single step.
    • Order Status – Choose the order status of the order after a successful capture.
  2. Once all needed options are selected, click on Save changes.

Once the configuration is completed, make sure to set up your Webhooks.
