Swedbank Pay Checkout – Capture

Step 5: Capture the funds

Capture can only be done on a payment with a successful authorized transaction, and if the authorization was not done on a one-phase payment instrument. Examples of one-phase payment instruments are Swish and Vipps, while payment instruments such as Card Payments are two-phase payments, requiring a Capture to be performed.

It is possible to do a part-capture where you only capture a smaller amount than the authorized amount. You can later do more captures on the same payment up to the total authorization amount.

This is done by requesting the order information from the server, to get the request link to perform the capture. With this, you can request the capture with the sum to capture, and get back the status.

To capture the authorized payment, we need to perform create-paymentorder-capture against the accompanying href returned in the operations list. See the abbreviated request and response below:
