Can I pre-authorize an EMV transaction?
Yes you can. Pre-authorizations and post-authorizations, also known as Auth and Capture, work the same way for EMV as they do for magstripe transactions.
Pre-authorizations on a debit network
Debit networks do not support pre-authorizations. When you request a pre-authorization on a debit network, we automatically change the transaction into a sale. The transaction is completed as soon as it is authorized and does not require a post-authorization.
Pre-authorizations on a credit network
You can pre-authorize both debit and credit cards on a credit network. The process is the same for both card types.
