Capturing an order is done when the shipment of the order items is made. The void call is used when the order is authorized, but not yet shipped and all items in the order have to be cancelled.

What is a Consolidated Invoice?

Consolidated invoice is suitable for merchants that have consumers who make multiple purchases within a certain period of time, which can be selected by merchants (e.g. monthly invoicing such as transportation tickets). Merchants may then offer a single invoice for those separate purchases. In this case, purchases can be made on different dates, and the payment term is related to the date of the consolidated invoice being issued on.
