Only taking payment when goods shipped

Good evening, I have tried looking for this using search feature but nothing turns up.

I am wondering if there is a service designed into cs-cart that will authorise the used credit/debit card but will NOT charge the card until we select “completed” status on the customer’s status.

any help would be appreciated.


Within CS-Cart there are perhaps 2-3 payment processors which allow you the capability to Authorize & Capture seperately.

One of them is, so you would have to choose one of these as your payment processor.

I use and I do just what you are asking… Works great when I find an item is discontinued that I missed or something…

Then I do not incur the refund charge as the card was not charged until I verified my suppliers indeed have it in stock…

A must in my opinion when you do not house the products yourself and rely on distributors.
