From the Paydock API

Make a POST /v1/charges/:id/capture request passing in required parameters. You can find the capture request below:

curl --location -g --request POST '{{url}}/v1/charges/charge_id/capture' \ 
--header 'x-user-secret-key: {{secretkey}}' \ 
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \

How to use a multiple capture

Multiple captures allow merchants to capture a payment multiple times in the charge life cycle. If you need to use the multiple capture feature for an existing authorised charge, please follow these steps:

  1. Log into your Paydock Production or Sandbox account
  2. Navigate to Charges from the menu on the left
  3. Find the authorised charge you would like to capture
  4. Click Actions > Capture
  5. Input the required amount to capture the charge
  6. Click the Capture button
  7. Success! The charge is successfully captured

You can repeat these steps until the full amount of the authorised charge is captured. Also, the total amount of all captures should not exceed the total amount of the authorised charge.

Note: The Multiple capture feature is supported by Till Payments only. To activate this feature, please check the Enable Multicapture button during the connecting/editing gateway.
