Overview

A cancellation or void authorization puts a hold on a payment. If no amount is specified, then the full amount will be canceled. Cancellations can only be completed on transactions with the status SETTLEMENT_REQUESTED. Multiple cancellations cannot be completed on a single payment. Only a cancellation for the full transaction amount is allowed.

You can perform a cancellation through the API or the portal
