Hello Josh,

We are not processing in exactly the same manner, but I wrote a little code
that takes the IC sale data and submits it to Authorize.net for
authorization and capture for the full sale amount. We don't pre-authorize
the sales - the system just captures the sale and we review and process
later (so all international sales are not immediately declined :))
I'm sure you could modify the code somewhat to do what you want, but it will
take a little work to get there.
It may take a little while for me to dig it out, but let me know if you want
