CIM versus AIM

Question - can I auth a card using AIM, then prior auth & capture using CIM, or must it be AIM auth, AIM capture and CIM auth, CIM capture?

 

Thanks!

Re: CIM versus AIM

no, you will need the profile and payment profile id on a CIM transaction.

Why would you do it that way? AIM then CIM?

You could do CIM auth only then use the transactionID and do a AIM prior auth & capture.

Re: CIM versus AIM

I am trying to understand my options. Currently our system uses AIM. We're trying to move to CIM to reduce our PCI burden. 

 

One thing I'm having a hard time understanding is what data items we'll need from the CIM auth process to be able to do the CIM 'prior auth and capture' later on. Or maybe we should continue to do AIM capture since you said that is possible to do with a CIM auth.

Re: CIM versus AIM

The CIM doc is here, look at the CreateCustomerProfileTransaction

http://developer.authorize.net/api/cim/

 

Yes you can use AIM to do 'prior auth and capture' on any auth_only created from any of the API.
