How long is Bolt's Authorization Window?

The authorization window is the period of time that a transaction can remain authorized without capture before Bolt automatically voids the authorization and funds are no longer guaranteed by the issuing bank. 

The Bolt authorization window is 7 days, and authorizations are voided after 7 days if not captured. Between 8 and 14 days, merchants can still attempt to reauthorize a customer’s card and capture payment, but the authorization may fail. If reauthorization fails (for example, if the card expires within the 7-day period), the transaction will be voided. 

Note — The authorization window begins at the moment that an order is placed. Bolt's risk review process occurs during the authorization window.
