“above will put a temporary authorization on the provided card….”

Hi Pete Keen, how would you release a customer charge hold? ie – call from the api exactly what the button does in the dashboard “Release Authorization”. There doesn’t seem to be a way atm.

“Cancelling an uncaptured charge”
“Hi Shawn, you can cancel an uncultured charge by just issuing a refund on it.”

hmm….

Refunds

Refund objects allow you to refund a charge that has previously been created but not yet refunded. Funds will be refunded to the credit or debit card that was originally charged. The fees you were originally charged are also refunded.”
