Final Authorization Indicator

This feature meets a mandate from Mastercard. The purpose of the mandate is to ensure that an authorization is revered, so that customer’s funds are available again, when the order might not be fulfilled.
For an authorization with an amount greater than zero, Mastercard recommends that you indicate whether the authorization is a final authorization, a preauthorization, or an undefined authorization.
You can set a default authorization type in your account. To set the default authorization type in your account, contact customer support.
Chargeback protection is in effect for seven days after the authorization.
