Authorization allows you to reserve funds on the customer's account without taking payment immediately. You can enable or disable authorization in your settings.

Creating an authorization-only order is very similar to other orders - in the order request include the authorizeOnly attribute with value true. If you set authorizeOnly to false, or omit it from the request, then Worldpay will automatically request capture of the funds immediately.

An authorized order will have status AUTHORIZED. Remember that you must capture the order to take payment.

This tutorial explains how to make a Authorize order. The example on the right hand side includes all the optional but recommended fields as described for creating a standard order.
