Payment in installments
A payment is considered as an installment payment if the buyer is debited with the amount for the purchase in several installments.
The first installment is similar to the immediate payment.
The next installment is similar to a deferred payment.
Only the first installment can be guaranteed to the merchant on the condition that the requested capture date for the first installment is set before the authorization expiration date depending on the payment method (see section Authorization validity period below).
