Certainly I am well aware that I may have a limit set but that I can ring the card company and have a payment authorised, even if it is above the limit. This then saves me having to chase the customer to pay another way.
In hotels it is common to have an imprint made of a client's card on arrival. In the event of the client departing without completing the bill at the time, this can be used to settle the bill. If it is over the floor limit, a phone call to the credit card company invariably authorises the amount and the payment goes through.
