Reserve funds - Authorization and capture - Mercado Pago Developers

Reserve Funds

For fund reserve authorization, you just need to add the capture=false attribute like this:

          
<?php

  MercadoPago\SDK::setAccessToken("ENV_ACCESS_TOKEN");

  $payment = new MercadoPago\Payment();

  $payment->transaction_amount = 100;
  $payment->token = "ff8080814c11e237014c1ff593b57b4d";
  $payment->description = "Title of what you are paying for";
  $payment->installments = 1;
  $payment->payment_method_id = "visa";
  $payment->payer = array(
    "email" => "test_user_19653727@testuser.com"
  );

  $payment->capture=false;

  $payment->save();

?>

        
          
MercadoPagoConfig.setAccessToken("ENV_ACCESS_TOKEN");

PaymentClient client = new PaymentClient();

PaymentCreateRequest request =
   PaymentCreateRequest.builder()
       .transactionAmount(new BigDecimal("100"))
       .token("ff8080814c11e237014c1ff593b57b4d")
       .description("Título do produto")
       .installments(1)
       .paymentMethodId("visa")
       .payer(PaymentPayerRequest.builder().email("test_user_19653727@testuser.com").build())
       .capture(false)
       .build();

client.create(request);

The response indicates that the payment is authorized and pending to capture.

json

{
  "id": PAYMENT_ID,
  ...
  "status": "authorized",
  "status_detail": "pending_capture",
  ...
  "captured": false,
  ...
}

It can be rejected or remain pending. Take into account that authorized funds cannot be used by your customer until captured. You need to make the capture as soon as possible.

Important
  • The reserve will be valid for 5 days. If you don't capture it within this term, it will be cancelled.
  • You need to save the payment ID to complete the process.
