First of all, it is not possible to do a single auth only transaction and then later capture the total amount in several transactions, correct? That is how it seems according to the documentation.
The website I am working on has a single checkout but has the ability to send multiple shipments. They want to bill/capture the credit card when each item is shipped, which could be days or weeks apart.
So is the best way to handle this to make several auth_only transactions, one for each package and then capture them individually? I am concerned that this could get very complicated if the customer is near their credit limit and only part of the order could be authorized. I doubt that would be a common occurrence but I am trying to think of everything.
Or can I void the original auth only and then do an auth capture each time a package is sent and hope the customer doesn't go over his limit, or cancel the card etc.
Am I missing some other option?
