KirkM Posted December 13, 2005 Share Posted December 13, 2005 I have a client that sells hats, clothing, sports accessories, etc. here in the U.S. who is very concerned about the fact that the cart gateway (Authorize.net) is being told by CC3 default to Authorize and Capture for every transaction. He says it is illegal to charge before you are actually shipping the product. So if something is out of stock or requires any amount of time to get out the door, he is freaking out about the fact that the funds have been settled at the end of that day. He says he can't legally do that. What I need to do is have CC3 send x_type = "AUTH_ONLY" instead of the default of x_type = "AUTH_CAPTURE". Then I guess I would have to have them log into their Authorize.net admin interface when shipping and do a "PRIOR_AUTH_CAPTURE" from there using the x_trans_id that is returned with the original authorization. Any tips for doing this and also how to alter the transfer.php script to send as AUTH_ONLY properly would be appreciated. I am assuming I just put in an additional hidden html form element that is x_type = "AUTH_ONLY". I still need to work out how to retreive and store the x_trans_id returned from the gateway. Thanks.
