PayTabs plugins make the integration with the PayTabs payment gateway very easy by providing a ready-made and easy-to-install plugin that enables you to be ready and go with a few steps, to get you up and running with your business. 

In this article, we will walk you through how to control the type of transactions associated with your Drupal website/store's orders. We highly recommend that you check our "What is the "tran_type" (transaction type)?solution article first to understand the business/logic this configuration option relay on. To manage this configuration option, kindly follow the below steps:

1. From your Drupal admin panel on the left side, navigate to "Commerce" and select "Configuration".

2. Then, click on the "Payment gateways" under "Payment" to display all payment gateways.

3. After that, On the payment gateways page, Select "Edit" button 

4. Finally, provide the title you want this payment method to be displayed with to your customers on your website/store checkout page as shown below:

Choosing "Sale" will directly deduct the payment from the customer's bank account if the payment is successfully authenticated, and credited to your PayTabs bank account.

On the other hand, if you choose "Auth" this will charge the customer indeed but will authorize (hold) the order amount only on the customer's issuer to be captured (transferred to your PayTabs bank account) later.

Authorized orders can be fully/partialy captured manually either from Drupal admin panels > Sales > Orders > [Selected Order] > Payments > Catpture, 
Or manually as well, but from the merchant's Paytabs dashboard.

Same for refunding/releasing this authorized amount back to the customer (fully and partially).
