Card Authorization, by default, is not turned on and will require a few steps to be turned on. The Card Authorization Feature checks the client's bank account with the amount being charged, before crediting it back later. If the account does not have enough funds to pay for your product, they will not be allowed to have access until it is paid.
NOTE: If you have any "Trial days" attached to the plan those will also kick in as soon as the card is authorized and Funds may take up to 5 business days before being return to the clients bank account. This Feature will only work with Subscriptions and Payment plans.
