Server Release Notes for October 26, 2010

These release notes apply to the ICS test and production servers.

New Features for Debit Cards and Prepaid Cards on FDC Compass and FDC Nashville Global

CyberSource added support for the following features:

  • Partial authorizations: When the balance on a debit card or prepaid card is less than the requested authorization amount, the issuing bank can approve a partial amount. When this happens, you can accept multiple forms of payment for the order starting with some or all of the approved amount followed by one or more different payment methods.
  • Balance responses: If there is a balance remaining on a prepaid card after an authorization, the authorization reply can include the balance amount if your processor sends that data to CyberSource.

For an introduction to the API updates, see Partial Authorizations. Depending on which API you are using, see Credit Card Services for the Simple Order API or Credit Card Services for the SCMP API.

New Feature for Atos: Authorization Refresh

If a capture request occurs more than six days after the date of the original authorization, CyberSource tries to obtain a fresh authorization for the capture amount by performing a system-generated authorization using the payment data from the original authorization. Depending on which API you are using, see Credit Card Services for the Simple Order API or Credit Card Services for the SCMP API.

Simple Order API

Version 1.55 of the Simple Order API has been released. For information about what has changed, see the Simple Order API Release Notes.
