Capture payment

The Capture payment action captures payment for the order that triggers the workflow.

For example, you create a workflow that uses the Order created trigger and the Capture payment action. The Order created trigger starts a workflow only when a new order is created, and does not monitor an order for new transactions. If the order is edited or has a post-purchase upsell, then the new payment is not captured. In this case, use the Order transaction created trigger instead, which starts a workflow every time a new transaction is created on an order.

Triggers

The Capture payment action has a hidden field added to it by the trigger. This field, Order ID, identifies the order to capture payment for. The order ID is set by default and can't be changed.

The Capture payment action can be used in workflows that start with the following triggers:
