What does an Authorization mean?

  • A successful authorisation message is returned by the card issuing bank confirming that the cardholder has adequate funds available against their line of credit.
  • A positive authorization results in an authorization code being generated, and those funds being reserved.
  • The cardholder's available credit limit is reduced by the authorized amount.
