Captures funds from an authorized payment instrument.


To capture funds from an authorized payment instrument, call the Capture operation. To successfully capture a payment, you must call this operation on an Authorization object before it expires, as specified by the ExpirationTimestamp returned in response of the Authorize operation call. You must specify a capture amount, and the amount cannot exceed the original amount that was authorized.

You can query the status of a capture request by calling the GetCaptureDetails operation.

This operation has a maximum request quota of 10 and a restore rate of one request every second in the production environment. It has a maximum request quota of two and a restore rate of one request every two seconds in the sandbox environment. For definitions of throttling terminology and for a complete explanation of throttling, see Throttling: Limits to how often you can submit requests in the Amazon MWS Developer Guide.

This API call is idempotent. If called multiple times, with unchanged parameters (including CaptureReferenceId), the same result is produced.
