Does CIM take the place of AIM? How to authorize card on website and capture using another system?

I had a customer request that CIM be integrated into their website. It looks like CIM can be used with AIM, or am I mistaken here?

 

Customer wants the credit card authorized on the website, then it will later be captured via their accounting system. From what I can tell, the following will have to be done:

 

On the website, call the following functions:

  • createCustomerProfileRequest
  • createCustomerProfileTransactionRequest - using <profileTransAuthOnly>

Then in the accounting system, call the following function:

  • createCustomerProfileTransactionRequest - using <profileTransPriorAuthCapture>

Am I on the right path here?

Hello @brendo234

 

Its actually must simpler using the Authorize.Net API which includes the functions of AIM and CIM.

 

You can start with createTransactionRequest and set the flag to create a profile.  If the transaction is successful, you'll get the customer profile information back in the response.
