Perform a payment gateway capture operation

This method allows you to perform a "capture" operation on a previously created "authorize" operation (see our [POST] /PaymentGateway/authorize method for additional information).
When you perform the "authorize" operation, the bank that issued the credit card will place an authorization of the total amount of the funds. This is how the bank determines if the funds are available to make the purchase. The card will not actually be “charged” until you perform the "capture" operation.
Please note, different card brands and different banks allow for different time frames on the lifespan of a payment authorization. You will need to check with your payment processor on how long you would have between performing an "authorize" operation and a "charge" operation".


Additional parameters may be required

Please note that some payment processors require custom parameters and properties to be added to the request sent to them. We have outlined all of the payment processors that require additional information here.
