I have a business model where the payment should only be captured when the order was fulfilled by the shipping centre. I see that, with card payments, there is an option to manually capture payments thus I can capture the payments manually after it was fulfilled.
Now I want to integrate Paypal as well and have payments only be authorized and not automatically captured. As I understand, Paypal payments are always automatically captured in Shopify when the order was placed. Is there a possibility to mitigate this behaviour?
Thanks in advance

This is an accepted solution.
Okay I found an option to do this: This behaviour has to be set in PayPal directly, so that funds do not directly get processed but only authorized. When I now place an order, the funds are authorized by the user through PayPal and when the order gets marked as fulfilled, the payments gets processed.
