Did you mean: PHP SDK pre-authorization with $0 amount is not working

I need to be able to pre-authorize transactions using authOnlyTransaction method for $0 and the API responds with code 290 "There is one or more missing or invalid required fields". I tried changing amount to $0.01 everything works as expected but with $0. I do have another account using the old deprecated AIM and it's working fine there (th same processor). According to this is not related to processor limitation as they do not see $0 transactions hitting their system at all... any ideas?

According to documentation I probably need to set isFirstSubsequentAuth to true but I cannot find the right method that would do that


Yes, I think you want Secure Acceptance Hosted Checkout API documented here. See page 51 for all the endpoints. If you only want to create a token then the test endpoint is /echatspin /echatrandom
