SIM Authorization Only followed by Capture Only

Hi,

 

I'm wondering if it's possible using SIM to do the following:

1. Post an AUTH_ONLY to Authorize.net

2. Merchant receives a successful response containing x_auth_code, which is stored in the merchant's db

3. Some time later (perhaps at order shipment), Post a CAPTURE_ONLY to Authorize.net, (the form contains only the following: x_type = CAPTURE_ONLY, x_auth_code = the authorization code received in the response from the AUTH_ONLY)

 

If this is possible, does Authorize.net show a page and/or pass a response back to the merchant to indicate if the capture was successful?

 

Thanks!

You would use SIM auth_only and then an AIM  PRIOR_AUTH_CAPTURE with the transaction id.

The second transaction would response just like auth_capture would.

Thanks for the quick reply! Forgive my ignorance, but how do we switch from SIM to AIM? Or is it just dictated by the x_type that we use?

Re: SIM Authorization Only followed by Capture Only

SIM is form post, AIM is code post. You can look at the sample code.

But, I guess you could use SIM for PRIOR_AUTH_CAPTURE too.
