What types of payments are supported? e.g. Pre-auth payments, Subscriptions etc

The following types of payments are available within Charge (previously Charge for Stripe) mobile apps:

Standard payments: Processed immediately using the customer’s credit card details. Perfect for shops, market stalls, contractors and anyone wanting to accept credit card payments on their phone. Learn more.

Pre-authorized payments: These allow users to process a pre-authorized payment which can then be cancelled or processed at a late time. Perfect for car hire or accommodation providers. Learn more.

Payment Requests: Send your customer a payment request via SMS or email (or any messaging app), they click on the link and enter their credit card details to complete the payment. Simple. Learn more.

Subscription payments: Users can setup subscription payments which are automatically processed as per the specified schedule (e.g. weekly, fortnightly, monthly, yearly) and also specify for how long the payments should continue. e.g. Until further notice or until 12 payments have been processed. Subscription payments are perfect if you have customers you charge on a regular basis (like personal trainers or gym memberships) or donors who want to donate on a regular basis. Learn more.
