After checkout adding subscription

Hi Folks, We are using a commercial piece of software from XEROX that we can't change any of the source. It is tightly integrated with Authorize.net. What we want to do is after an individual purchases a product we check to see if this is their first order. If it is we want to put them in a subscription model in addition to the product purchase. What we get from Authorize.net is the transaction id, status, order id and encrypted order id. What I was wondering is if it is possible using the transaction id, to grab the customer information and enroll them in a subscription model without having them re-enter their credit card information? Is this doable or am I grasping at straws? Jim

Not thru any API, but on the merchant account

https://sandbox.authorize.net/ or https://secure.authorize.net/

You can create ARB from a settled transaction

Hello @cpijim 

While we currently don't offer this feature through the API, I'm going to forward this as an enhancement request to our product team.

I'd recommend subscribing to this topic so that you'll be alerted via email if there are updates. To subscribe, click Topic Options at the top of this thread and then select Subscribe. You'll then receive an email once anyone replies to your post.

Thanks,

Richard

Thanks Richard,

 

We use another credit card processor that allows for a plethora of functions to be performed on a transaction id.
Once you have a a valid transaction id you can perform other functions on the account using the transaction id
 + credentials.

I'll subscribe to this topic. 
Look forward to this feature request implementation.  I'm sure its not something that will be implemented for while.

Jim
