For Check-In transactions, the customer’s card will be authorized for the Total Stay Amount entered in. The authorization is placed on the customer’s card until the customer is ready to Check-Out. On the day of Check-Out, the lodging clerk would complete the Check-Out flow to capture the authorization held on the customer’s card. The Checked-Out transaction is then placed in the current day’s Open Settlement Batch until the batch is submitted and closed later that day by the lodging clerk/manager.
