Supported operations by the VirtueMart payment plugin

Capture

Payments can be captured in two different modes. In “Delayed” mode, payments are only captured when the order status is changed to “Shipped” in VirtueMart. When the “Instant” mode is selected, the transactions are captured right away when the customer makes the payment.

Void

A transaction will be voided automatically if the order status in VirtueMart is changed to either “Cancelled”, “Refunded” or “Refund Half”.

Refund

A captured transaction can be refunded completely by setting the order status to “Refunded”. For issuing a partial refund, you can transfer back half of the funds to your customer’s card by setting the order status to “Refund Half”. If you wish to refund a different amount, you can do that manually through the Paylike dashboard.
