Is It Possible to Capture some amount from the total authorized amount?

Below is the requirement from our client relating to Card Payments:-

1) Our client wants to capture some amount from the total authorized amount. Is this possibile in Authorize.net by using new card and Saved card profile.
For ex:-
1) Debit card or Credit card has been authorized for $100.00 amount.
2) After authorization for $100.00 successfully, capture request for $30.00 will be submited to Authorize.net.
3) After couple of days, another capture request for $50.00 will be submitted to Authorize.net.
4) After 5 days, another capture request for remaining $20.00 will be submitted to Authorize.net.
5) The amount should be deducted from Card immediately on submitting the capture request.
6) Can we also void the remaining amount instead of capturing the amount. 

Does the above process is doable using Authorize.net. Please advice.

Re: Is It Possible to Capture some amount from the total authorized amount?

An authorization can only be captured once. In your example, a transaction for $100 is authorized as an Authorize Only transaction on the customer's card. When you capture part of that authorized amount, it cancels the remainder of the authorization. You can't capture from a transaction more than once.

 

If you need to charge the customer further, you can run a 'rebill' transaction from the original within the Authorize.Net interface - or if you've saved a CIM profile, you can charge the card through their payment profile.
