A drawback of having the automatic capture of credit card payments set up is that, the system is not able to identify if a product in a customer’s cart is available by the time of purchases or not. If a payment for an unavailable product is automatically allowed, the store owner has to refund the order.

Therefore, if you don’t trust the capture of credit card payments to regulate itself automatically, Shopify always allows you to do it manually by setting up manual capture of credit card payments.

However, be cautious that to receive money from an order, you have to capture its payment before the authorization period ends.

In this article, you would find elaborated instruction on how to set up manual capture of credit card payments on Shopify.
