    Default Capturing Authorisations

    I have a Paypal Express Checkout setting of

    Payment Action: Auth Only

    and was wondering how long I have to capture the full amount.

    PayPal help says I have 29 days but there seems to be a requirement to re-authorise after the 3-day honor period.
    https://developer.paypal.com/docs/cl...on-and-capture

    In the ZC Admin order page (orders.php) there are sections for 'Order Authorizations' and 'Capturing Authorisations'. Am I still able to Capture after the three days (perhaps 'Capturing Authorisations' automatically re-authorises as part of its process?) or do I need to re-authorise using the 'Order Authorizations' and then capture?

    The paragraph you seem to be referring to says PayPal "suggests", not "requires" a re-authorization after the 3-day honor period.

    Zen Cart doesn't offer a feature to re-authorize the transaction.
