Transactions in test environment can now be cleared

When completing a credit card transaction, there are two steps: authorisation and clearing.

Authorisation is the step at purchase where the bank confirms that the purchase can be made.

Clearing is the step 24-72 hours later where the money is actually debited and transferred to the merchant’s account.

In the Fidel test environment, all transactions are automatically authorised, and appear in the transactions table of the dashboard. You can now manually “clear” the transaction, to mimic the process where the bank completes the transaction:

Once you confirm the transaction clearing, it will appears as cleared:

And the transaction.clearing webhook will fire, allowing you to test transaction clearing before going to production.
