Remote authorization scenarios
The remote authorization scenarios are dependent on the type of purchase transactions sent from the mechant.
- Dual message (Authorization followed by a Clearing request)
- Single message (Authorization and Clearing request combined)
In a dual message scenario, an authorization request arrives first followed by a separate clearing request, and only the authorization request will go through a remote authorization process for decision making. You will receive a separate clearing notification in the webhook. The diagram shows the remote authorization process where decisioning is made only for the authorization request.
In a single message scenario, the authorization and clearing requests are effectively combined into one single message, and the request will go through remote authorization for decisioning directly. You will not receive a separate clearing notification in the webhook.
The diagram shows the remote authorization process when authorization and clearing are combined into one request.
