Finalize authorization

This functionality is used to activate a purchase in Paynova's system and is typically the last API call you make in a payment flow. If an invoice purchase, the finalization means that Paynova will send out the first invoice and initiate the payment collection.

Invoice/installments

The order will be activated and the first invoice will be sent out.

Currently, only finalization of the full order amount is supported.

Credit/Debit Cards

The authorization will be captured.

You may finalize an authorization only once. The capture amount must be equal to or less than the original authorized amount.

Internet Banks

This method is not used because internet banks are automatically finalized.
