Hello I have read some messages on this board of adding a tip afterwards transaction is completed, many say its not possible but they are really old discussions.
I tested that the Authorize.Net iOS Phone Mobile App actually does process tip but seems it does it before the authorization and/or capture process happens so just adds to the total cost. Thats not most pos system work.
I read on one of the board posts you can link into previous transaction with the reftransid (assuming need to add authcode too) but my tries was unsuccessful. Is this still not supported or am i sending/missing some wrong info.
Tried transaction types
AuthorizeNet.Api.Contracts.V1.transactionTypeEnum.authCaptureTransaction (processed as a new transaction and not as a tip)
AuthorizeNet.Api.Contracts.V1.transactionTypeEnum.priorAuthCaptureTransaction (The transaction cannot be found.)
Do I authorize the transaction and wait for the tip then complete it? But then when should i complete the transaction if their is no tip.
We are using the c# .net api for this. Please help thank you.
Thanks for inquiring about tips. Authorize.Net is certified to process a Tip amount added after authorization when TSYS is the processor. For other processors, the tip must be passed with the initial authorization. The tip element in createTransactionRequest is used to designate the tip amount.
