After creating a transaction token, a charge can be created to complete a payment.
Charges are processed asynchronously, so on creation they will in a
pending state. After UnivaPay has finished processing the payment, the status will be automatically changed to
error depending on the result. To be notified of the final state of a charge, you can register a webhook for the
CHARGE_FINISHED event. Alternatively, a long poll can be made when getting a charge resource but does not guaranty it would have entered the final state.
The authorization is used to confirm that the credit card is available actually and to reserve credit facility. Next create a capture to determine the payment.
To authorize, set
capture parameter as
false when creating a charge. You can also use
capture_at parameter if you want to capture the charge automatically in specific date time. The created charge will in a
pending state. After the card issuer has authorized the request, the status will be automatically change to
authorized. Authorization may be in a
failed state for various reasons, such as card has expired or insufficient credit faiility, etc.
To capture a charge, make a request for the
authorized charge. Please refer to create a capture for charge.
When you don’t capture the charge, credit facility should be released by creating cancel.
