Recently, I received a new kind of transaction named "emv_authorization", what does it mean?

According to the documentation on, it should exist only

  • Authorization: An amount reserved against the cardholder's funding source. Money does not change hands until the authorization is captured.
  • Sale: An authorization and capture performed together in a single step.
  • Capture: A transfer of the money that was reserved during the authorization stage.
  • Void: A cancellation of a pending authorization or capture.
  • Refund: A partial or full return of captured funds to the cardholder. A refund can happen only after a capture is processed.
