When we pre-authorize a credit card can we eliminate the cap on how much we can increase the sale for after pre-authorization?

We use Revel POS (also known as Quickbooks POS) with quickbooks payment as the processor.  We preauthorize our customers credit cards when they open a tab (typically for the amount of the drink they just ordered) however if they continue drinking we are limited in how much we can close their tab out for without re-running their card.  I want to be able to open a tab for $10 and if the customer spends $100 be able to close the tab without running the card a second time.


Hi there steve.vanderpol,

I appreciate the detailed information you’ve provided.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
