Capture Transaction

Capture transaction is basically a process that flags an already authorized transaction to be settled in the next settlement period. Depending on the acquirer, multiple captures are permitted on a transaction, but the sum of captured amounts must be equal to or less than the initial authorize amount. It is possible to capture amounts larger than the initial authorized amount, however the capture operation may fail due to e.g. insufficient funds or like.

A Capture can only happen on a non-captured, non-canceled CCAuthorize transaction.
