Some users find it useful to hold back authorized payments until they are 'released' via an extra step.
Releasing is a post-authorization step that sends the payment through to Citi for processing.
To release a payment, hover your cursor over the 'Payments' menu, and under 'Payment Initiation' select 'To Release'.
On the next page, select the payment items you want to verify and click 'Release'.
