(1) Pre-Authorization (Paytrace Customers Only) –  Users will be able to apply an authorization hold on to a customer’s credit card.  This feature allows a user to hold a set amount on the customer’s credit card.   This hold is voided or captured.    More than one authorization can not be done on a single reservation.    If the authorization is not settled within 21 days, the hold will fall off.     If the hold needs to be adjusted, the user will need to void the current hold and resubmit the hold for the desired amount.   If any amount of the preauth is captured, the remainder would be voided.
