Pre-Authorization

Verifies and locks funds on the customer’s credit card. The funds are locked for a specified amount of time based on the card issuer.

To retrieve the funds that have been locked by a Pre-Authorization transaction so that they may be settled in the merchant’s account, a Completion transaction must be performed.

Things to consider:

  • If a Pre-Authorization transaction is not followed by a Completion transaction, it must be reversed via a Completion transaction for 0.00.
  • A Pre-Authorization transaction may only be "completed" once. If the Completion transaction is for less than the original amount, a Re-Authorization transaction is required to collect the remaining funds by another Completion transaction.

Pre-Authorization with AVS

Address Verification Service (AVS) is an optional fraud-prevention tool offered by issuing banks whereby a cardholder's address is submitted as part of the transaction authorization. The AVS address is then compared to the address kept on file at the issuing bank. AVS checks whether the street number, street name and zip/postal code match. The issuing bank returns an AVS result code indicating whether the data was matched successfully. Regardless of the AVS result code returned, the credit card is authorized or declined by the issuing bank.

The response that is received from AVS verification is intended to provide added security and fraud prevention, but the response itself does not affect the completion of a transaction. Upon receiving a response, the choice to proceed with a transaction is left entirely to the merchant. The responses is not a strict guideline of whether a transaction will be approved or declined.

Things to consider:

  • AVS is only supported by Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.
  • When testing AVS, you must only use the Visa test card numbers 4242424242424242 or 4005554444444403, and the amounts described in the Simulator eFraud Response Codes Table
  • For a full list of possible AVS result codes refer to the AVS Result Code tables.

Pre-Authorization with Vault

This transaction uses the data key to identify a previously registered credit card profile. The details saved within the profile are then submitted to perform a Purchase transaction.

The Vault feature allows merchants to create long term customer profiles, edit those profiles, and use them to process transactions without having to enter financial information each time.
