Instant or manual settle

Depending on what sort of product you are selling, you can change the setting of your Payment Capture, which is located on the right side of your screen under Payments in your Shopify settings.

  • Automatic Capture: If you are selling a service (not a physical product), where the customer gains instant access to your services, you can choose Automatically, which makes your orders settle instantly.

  • Manual Capture: If you are selling a physical product, however, you will need to have Manually as your setting, since Danish law does not allow merchants to charge customers before their product has been sent.


Automatically when order is fulfilled Authorize payment at checkout but wait to capture until the order is fulfilled. You can still capture manually if needed.
