Can Chat 2 Pay be used for bookings as well as prepaid transactions?

Chat 2 Pay has been developed to capture payment information securely and conveniently. Chat 2 Pay supports both “Sale” and “Authorization” transactions from day one. The type of transaction can be configured by the merchant using the Chat 2 Pay configuration tool in the Clickatell Portal.

The “Authorization” transaction type would be used for placing a hold on the customer’s card, for example when booking a rental car without needing to pay upfront.


Payment configuration in the Clickatell Portal allows transactions to be set as “Sale” or “Authorization”
