The Require Authorization on Credit Card Transactions option on the Web Site Setup page, is distinct from the Get Authorization on Customer Center Sales Order Transactions option, at Setup > Accounting > Accounting Preferences , on the Items/Transactions subtab.
The Require Authorization on Credit Card Transactions option here applies to sales orders placed by your customers logged in to your website. If this option is enabled, when customers order from your website:
their credit cards are automatically processed and their payments are validated.
the credit card they use is automatically tokenized. Note that this only happens if the Payment Instruments feature is enabled and a payment processing profile, which is set up to tokenize credit cards, is selected for the website.
The Get Authorization on Customer Center Sales Order option accounting preference applies to sales orders placed by your Customer Center users logged in to the NetSuite application.
You can enable one of these options at a time or both of them together. For more information, see the help topic Shopping Preferences.
