When are credit card gifts charged from an Online Express form?

When a constituent donates on an Online Express form, when is the credit card gift actually charged to their card?
Credit cards are charged as soon as a constituent selects "Donate Now" on a web form after entering their gift information.
This is true regardless if the transaction is deleted from within Online Express, or deleted in a Raiser's Edge batch.

The one exception to this is a recurring gift scheduled to be charged at a later date, which would be charged from batch in Raiser's Edge.
For more information on this process, refer to: How do I process recurring gifts, pledges, and direct debits from Online Express in The Raiser's Edge?
