Previously, when you checked out an order, the payment was captured during the checkout process. Now with the deferred payment feature, you can authorize the payment during the checkout, but the customer's credit card will not be charged until the order has shipped. This gives the merchant the flexibility to determine how they want to charge their customers.
If the merchant has set the payment settings to capture after an order is shipped, the payment is only authorized during the checkout process. The payment transaction ID and
pending status is sent to the Order service. After the order has been shipped, the transaction ID is used to capture the payment.
For more information, see Deferred Payment.
