After the card is authorized, the PaymentIntent status will transition to
requires_capture. To capture the authorized funds, make a PaymentIntent capture request. The total authorized amount is captured by default—you can’t capture more than this. To capture less than the initial amount, pass the amount_to_capture option. Partially capturing automatically releases the remaining amount.
The following example demonstrates how to capture $7.50 of the authorized $10.99 payment:
Authorized payments can only be captured once. If you partially capture a payment, you cannot perform another capture for the difference. Depending on your requirements, you may be better served by saving customer’s card details for later and creating future payments as needed.
Card statements from some issuers do not distinguish between authorizations and captured (settled) payments, which can sometimes confuse customers.
Additionally, when a customer completes the payment process on a PaymentIntent with manual capture, it triggers the
payment_intent.amount_capturable_updated event. You can inspect the PaymentIntent’s amount_capturable property to see the total amount that can be captured from the PaymentIntent.
