Locking the Cart
To prevent Community Hub constituents from potentially submitting their cart and making a payment twice, the cart is locked during cart and payment submission. This prevents duplicate submissions and is invisible to the constituents.
Staff also locks the cart during submission, but the payment is not locked.
Checking for a Conflicting Order Adjustment
By default, Nimble AMS allows multiple users to submit an edit to the same order item. This is not recommended as orders could be impacted in unforeseen ways if multiple edits are made to an order at the same time.
When order adjustment versioning is enabled, Nimble AMS does not submit an order with a conflicting edit and shows a message letting users know they cannot submit the order because it includes items which have been modified by another user.
Credit Card Payment Authorization
When constituents pay with a credit card and submit their order, a callout is made to the configured payment gateway to verify the accuracy of the card information and that there are enough funds for the payment. A second callout is made to the payment gateway to capture and process the transaction for the credit card payment. When the process completes, the constituents will see an order confirmation.
From time to time, a failure can occur during this process. If the failure is on payment authorization, no records are created in Nimble AMS and the transaction in the payment gateway is cancelled.
Contact Nimble AMS Support if there is a failure in processing a credit card payment.
