The purpose of this article is to give a better understanding of the default authorization amount and how to change it.
The default pre-authorization amount is $10. This will remain the amount until it is changed during self-provisioning or changed within the Device Summary after provisioning.
NOTE: To best determine the appropriate authorization amount for your market, consider the average transaction amount.
There is no authorization amount on the unlocked PicoCooler.
Pre-Authorization Did Not Reverse
