Soap API v1.6


Capture a queued transaction.


Move an authorized transaction into the current batch for settlement. It is possible to capture an amount other than the one originally authorized, however, you must follow the guidelines established by the merchant service bank. Capturing a higher or lower dollar amount could result in additional penalties and fees.

Most banks typically allow no more than 10 days to pass between the authorization/capture and settlement of a transaction.

If you do not wish to capture a previously authorized transaction, you may void the original authorization rather than capturing a 0 dollar amount, or simply allow the captured transaction to time out.

TransactionResponse captureTransaction ( ueSecurityToken Token, integer RefNum, Amount )


Type Name Description
ueSecurityToken Token Merchant security token: used to identify merchant and validate transaction.
integer RefNum Unique transaction reference number assigned by the gateway.
double Amount Capture Amount if different from authorization
string IfAuthExpired Controls what will happen if the authorization has expired. Options are “Error” which will block the capture request; “ReAuth” which will attempt to reauthorize the funds; “Capture” which will ignore the authorization date and proceed with capture. If left blank, “Capture” will be assumed. The amount of time between an authorization expires is controlled by the “Expire Auths After” setting in the merchant console.

Return Value

TransactionResponse Returns a TransactionResponse object containing the results of the transaction and all relevant data.

This example uses the USAePay Java library. For directions on how to install the library and create the token/client objects, go to either the Java JAX-RPC Howto or the Java JAX-WS Howto.

try {
//Setting RefNum from the original transaction			
BigInteger RefNum = new BigInteger('12345678');
//Setting Amount to capture
Double Amount = new Double(12.34);
//Create Transaction Response
TransactionResponse Response;
Response = client.captureTransaction(token,RefNum,Amount);
} catch (Exception e) {
	System.out.println("Soap Exception: " + e.getMessage());
