Is there a way to re-pre-authorize a card at the end of the typical 5 day authorization period automatically?
Here is what my application does and why (i think) it needs to pre-auth everything.
Users can all buy the same thing, and split the cost of that thing when the time is up on the auction.
So if there are 5 buyers of 1 product, the cost of that product gets split 5 ways… But you never know how many buyers in total there will be until the end of the auction of course.
So how can I set this up?
My first idea was to pre-auth for the full amount assuming that no one else would buy, and then settle later on at the end of the Auction and actually charge the customers card divided by the number of people you also purchased…
But what if they purchase the item more than 5 days early? The pre-authorization won’t help at that point. Any input on what I can do to set this up?
