Descriptions

Account top-up
The result of instructions between you and the cardholder to charge a specific or variable amount at specified or variable intervals. An account top-up is an unscheduled COF transaction.
Delayed charge
Associated with an agreement between you and the cardholder for services rendered. Delayed charges are typical for lodging transactions and auto rental transactions.
Final authorization
Occurs when you need to authorize the final amount after an estimated authorization.
Incremental authorization
A continuation of a purchase when the originally approved amount is modified to accommodate additional services. Incremental authorizations are typical for lodging transactions and auto rental transactions.
Installment payment
The result of instructions governed by a contract between you and a cardholder. The instructions enable you to charge a specific amount at specified intervals.
No-show transaction
Occurs when you and a cardholder have an agreement for a purchase, but the cardholder does not meet the terms of the agreement. No-show transactions are typically used in hotels and motels for a single-night stay.
Reauthorization for split shipment
A split shipment occurs when multiple goods purchased in a single transaction are shipped at separate times. When the goods become available to ship, either you or CyberSource perform a new authorization for the portion of the transaction being delivered. This ensures that the cardholder’s funds are still available. The reauthorization is performed in one of the following scenarios:
  • Before requesting a capture, you request an authorization using the saved cardholder credentials.
  • You use the CyberSource split-shipment feature.
Recurring payment
The result of instructions governed by a contract between you and a cardholder. The instructions enable you to charge a specific or variable amount at specified intervals.
Resubmission
Occurs when a cardholder-initiated purchase occurred, but you could not obtain an authorization at that time. A resubmission is valid only when the original authorization was declined for insufficient funds and only for a limited number of days after the original purchase.
