Once the customer has read and accepted the terms of the order, it will be deducted from their available funds and will appear as 'Pending' in their account.

In your Zip Dashboard, you will now see this as 'Authorised'.

In this state, the customers’ interest-free period will not commence and they are not required to make repayments until the payment has been processed.

Please note that once accepted these orders will be ‘Authorised’ and require you to process them accordingly. Zip will not disburse the funds for an authorised order until it is completed.
