You asked, and we delivered! You can now authorize cards for more than the purchase amount to cover anticipated shipping and handling charges. In the Transaction Manager, you can authorize all credit card transactions by a percentage of the order cost or by a fixed amount over the order cost.

To get this set up, login to your site’s admin area and click on Transaction Manager, then select Checkout Configuration.

Next you will select your Shop, as well as the Group you’d like to set up first. Once you’ve selected a group to work with, select the Payment Options tab at the top of the screen.

Scroll to the area entitled “Credit Card Processor.” It is here that you will set up either a fixed amount or a percentage of the order subtotal to authorize to cover shipping and handling.

Make your changes and scroll down to click Save. Make sure to set up all groups to which the new authorization variance should apply.
