Does priorAuthCapture() method re-initiate another network access fee ?

 

MasterCard charges $0.0195  for Network Access and Brand Usage Fee (NABU) every time an authoriztion occurs. 

 

Visa also charges $0.0195 for Acquirer Processing Fee which is equivalent to MasterCard's network access fee.  

 

Such charge will occur when we use authorizeOnly() method to authorize certain amount of credit card transaction . 

 

 

(1)  I am wondering whether we need to pay another $0.0195 network access fee when we use  priorAuthCapture($trans_id)  method to capture the transaction priorly authorzied?   

 

(2)  Does void   prior authorization  require us to pay anothe  $0.0195 ?

Re: Does priorAuthCapture() method re-initiate another network access fee ?

 

Another way to ask this question:  

 

Does authorize.net route the information of priorAuthCapture() method to the  credit card brand network (visa, Master, etc.) to capture the prior authorization  or  authorize.net  handles this requestion in its own database ?
