# When Are Guests Charged?
When are the guests charged for their items at the event
Auctria will never automatically charge a card, so as to give you time to review the activity and make any adjustments (eg. if you are adding shipping).
Payments can be recorded for individual bidders through the Checkout page: see the section on Checkout
If bidders have registered credit cards, you can process the balances against these cards all at once using the 'batch checkout' feature -- see Batch Checkout for details on how this works.
