Delete - ltdelete

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

The ltdelete transaction attempts a Reversal on an authorization. Once the reversal is successful, the transaction is deleted from the Loyalty batch. A transaction that has been deleted from the batch cannot be recovered. Reversal restores the previous points or promo on a card and removes the transaction from the batch so there is no record.

For all cashier mistakes, it is recommended to use ltvoid instead of ltdelete.
