Settle Completion of payment with confirmation of withdrawal

Check Status Clarification of current status of payment
1.2 Payments pattern
There are two patterns of payment making: single- and double-staged.
The single-staged payment is to be performed with one commandSALE– by results of which authorization and further withdrawal of assets for the benefit of merchant takes place.
The double-staged payment is the usage of two commands:
1) AUTH – authorization, blocking of assets on user card;
2) Settle – confirmation of withdrawal.
After successful authorization the amount of transaction will be blocked at the card account of the client. Then the merchant has up to 21 calendar days for confirmation of withdrawal. If the transaction will not be confirmed within 21 days – it will be automatically cancelled.
One may confirm both the full amount of authorization and a part thereof. Depending on the settings the system can automatically perform the confirmation of double-staged payments after the specified number of days.
1.3 Purpose of protocol

4 ways to pay your global service providers
Depending on where you are located, you will have several different payment methods to choose from to pay the payment request, including: eCheck, local bank transfer, credit/debit card and your Payoneer account balance. In this post, we outline everything you need to know about these four payment methods.
1. What is an eCheck?
An eCheck is an electronic version of a paper check. It combines the processing efficiency and security of internet transactions with the well-established legal and business processes associated with paper checks.
Like a real check, an eCheck draws funds from a checking account in the amount written on the check. In the US, eChecks are considered the ‘next generation’ payment method and are widely used by businesses to make their online payments.
eChecks are processed through an Automated Clearing House (ACH) Network, making the transaction fast and highly secure. While eChecks do not offer chargeback or dispute resolution, they still can be recalled.
