Scenario 1 - Zero value auth transaction

Some issuers don't allow a zero value transaction. In this case Adyen authorises a minimum amount, for example Euro 1.00, to verify the shopper's card. After successful authorisation, Adyen's system automatically cancels the authorisation. The actual authorised amount is returned in this field which may differ from the amount sent in in the payment request.

Scenario 2 - Available amount

A shopper makes a transaction of Euro 10 using a gift card but the card contains only Euro 06. In this case, Adyen deducts the available amount and keeps the pending amount open to be completed with other payment options. The authorised amount is returned in this field.
