We're setting up a new online shop at the minute and an Authorisation & Capture function is essential for how it's going to work. I was hoping it would be reasonably straight forward to set up, but apparently not! From what I gather I'd need to write a bit of code for each 'Buy Now' button that lets PayPal know how much it needs to authorize which seems like an over complicated solution. Do we have the power to make changes to the 'checkout' button on MarketPress?
Has anyone else tried to set up something like this on MarketPress? I may be barking up the wrong tree here, but this is the only decent solution I've found that will let us hold payments until we can confirm we have stock. I think Google Checkout do a similar thing automatically, but I wouldn't like that to be the only option our customers have.
I've searched through the forums looking for other people with the same issue but couldn't find anything, hope this isn't a duplicate topic.
Any help or alternative solutions would be appreciated,
