Completion - cccomplete

This section describes the message parameters for Credit Card Completion transaction processing, which you can submit using the XML API integration method. Refer to the Integration Methods section for more information.

The cccomplete transaction places an approved Auth Only transaction into the open batch for settlement and converts the approved Auth Only transaction into a Sale transaction.

The supported completion types are as follows:

  • Full completion

    Send cccomplete with the Auth Only Transaction ID without any amount, if you wish to convert an existing Auth Only to Sale. The entire Auth Only transaction will move from the Auth Only batch to the Main batch for settlement.

  • Partial-completion

    Send cccomplete with the Auth Only Transaction ID with an amount that is less than the original Auth Only amount, if you wish to convert only a portion of the Auth Only to Sale. The Auth Only transaction will move from the Auth Only batch to the Main batch and the transaction will only be settled for smaller amount. The original Auth Only transaction cannot be used again.

  • Multi partial-completion

    Send cccomplete with the Auth Only Transaction ID with an amount that is less than the Auth Only amount and the Partial Shipment Indicator, this action will allow you to keep the unused portion of the Auth Only amount in the Auth Only batch, and convert only the desired portion to the Main batch. The Auth Only will remain in the Auth Only batch and multiple completions can be performed on the single Auth Only transaction until the total amount has been reached. Every completion will create a new fresh Sale.

note
  • Transaction status will not change. A pended Auth Only will be converted to a pended Sale. Users have to login to the application in order to unpend a transaction. Transactions set to pend will not settle until they are set to unpend.
  • A completion request for an amount higher than the original Auth Only is not allowed.
  • Users must have the Batches-Edit Transactions user right in order to complete a transaction.
