Merchant-Initiated Incremental Transaction with PAN

An incremental authorization is used to increase the total amount authorized for a payment if the initial authorization does not cover the total cost of goods and services. An incremental transaction is an additional amount to the original authorization. The final authorized total includes amounts for both the initial and the incremental authorizations. Incremental transactions are limited to certain merchant categories, such as rental, lodging, transit, amusement parks, restaurants, and bars.
