Batch Close Message (Tran Type 13)

Simplify supports a Batch Close message from the POS process. This message requests that a current batch be closed. The scope of the batch close is determined as follows:

  • If the Terminal ID is sent in Field 109 of the Batch Close Request, the batch close will only apply to transactions run on the PINpad specified by this Terminal ID.

  • If the Location Name is sent in Field 8002, the batch close will apply to transactions run in the entire location specified by this Location Name (typically: one store).

  • If the Chain Code is sent in Field 8006, the batch close will apply to transactions run for the entire chain specified by this Chain Code.

In the following example, the Terminal ID is sent in Field 109, so the batch close will only apply to transactions run on the specified PINpad.

See the Fusebox Integration Guide under "Transaction Types" > "Batch Close (13)" for more information.
