  • Callback data: Detailed information on the structure and format of callback data.

Success notification

When a transaction reaches its final state and is successful, the result field in the notification will contain the value OK. You can rely on this indication to confirm that the transaction has been successfully processed.

Here's an example of a success notification:

{
"result": "OK",
"uuid": "d94c0d72f3a36e21f16e",
"merchantTransactionId": "your-unique-identifier",
"purchaseId": "20240523-d94c0d72f3a36e21f16e",
"transactionType": "DEBIT",
"paymentMethod": "DirectDebit",
"amount": "9.99",
"currency": "EUR",
"customer": {
"firstName": "Alex",
"lastName": "Smith",
"emailVerified": "false"
},
"returnData": {
"_TYPE": "cardData",
"type": "visa",
"cardHolder": "Alex Smith",
"expiryMonth": "5",
"expiryYear": "2029",
"binDigits": "41111111",
"firstSixDigits": "411111",
"lastFourDigits": "1111",
"fingerprint": "46f7adfeb0a123fb8fcbfasdf6171asd6b3dfas44834c",
"threeDSecure": "OFF",
"binBrand": "US",
"binBank": "Global Trust Bank",
"binType": "CREDIT",
"binLevel": "STANDARD",
"binCountry": "US"
}
}

Error notification

In the case of a failed transaction, the result field will contain the value ERROR. Depending on the specific error, you may find useful information in the message and code fields or in the adapterMessage and adapterCode fields, which provide errors returned by the corresponding adapter.

Here's an example of an error notification:

{
"result": "ERROR",
"message": "STOLEN_CARD",
"code": "2016",
"adapterMessage": "Transaction was rejected",
"adapterCode": "1234",
"uuid": "d94c0d72f3a36e21f16e",
"merchantTransactionId": "your-unique-identifier",
"purchaseId": "20240523-d94c0d72f3a36e21f16e",
"transactionType": "DEBIT",
"paymentMethod": "DirectDebit",
"amount": "9.99",
"currency": "EUR",
"customer": {
"firstName": "Alex",
"lastName": "Smith",
"emailVerified": "false"
},
"returnData": {
"_TYPE": "cardData",
"type": "visa",
"cardHolder": "Alex Smith",
"expiryMonth": "5",
"expiryYear": "2029",
"binDigits": "41111111",
"firstSixDigits": "411111",
"lastFourDigits": "1111",
"fingerprint": "46f7adfeb0a123fb8fcbfasdf6171asd6b3dfas44834c",
"threeDSecure": "OFF",
"binBrand": "US",
"binBank": "Global Trust Bank",
"binType": "CREDIT"
"binLevel": "STANDARD",
"binCountry": "US"
}
}

Chargeback notification

When a chargeback occurs, you will receive a notification containing relevant information in the chargebackData field. This information provides details about the chargeback transaction.

Here's an example of a chargeback notification:

{
"result": "OK",
"uuid": "313f381aef908f4558e3",
"merchantTransactionId": "auto-313f381aef908f4558e3",
"purchaseId": "20240523-313f381aef908f4558e3",
"transactionType": "CHARGEBACK",
"paymentMethod": "Creditcard",
"amount": "9.99",
"currency": "EUR",
"chargebackData": {
"originalUuid": "afb7d03c447abb5a2628",
"originalMerchantTransactionId": "original-merchant-identifier",
"amount": 9.99,
"currency": "EUR",
"reason": "Unauthorized payment",
"chargebackDateTime": "2024-05-25T11:23:05Z"
}
}

Chargeback-reversal notification

When a chargeback reversal occurs, you will receive a notification containing relevant information in the chargebackReversalData field. This information provides details about the reversal of a previous chargeback transaction.

Here's an example of a chargeback reversal notification:

{
"result": "OK",
"uuid": "d94c0d72f3a36e21f16e",
"merchantTransactionId": "auto-d94c0d72f3a36e21f16e",
"purchaseId": "20240523-d94c0d72f3a36e21f16e",
"transactionType": "CHARGEBACK-REVERSAL",
"paymentMethod": "Creditcard",
"amount": "9.99",
"currency": "EUR",
"chargebackReversalData": {
"originalUuid": "afb7d03c447abb5a2628",
"originalMerchantTransactionId": "original-merchant-identifier",
"chargebackUuid": "313f381aef908f4558e3",
"amount": "9.99",
"currency": "EUR",
"reason": "Chargeback reversed",
"reversalDateTime": "2024-05-24T11:23:05Z"
}
}

Account updater notification

If your merchant account has the Account Updater feature enabled, you will receive notifications when a stored card of a customer gets updated. These notifications provide information about changes made to the card.

The account updater notification can result in the following outcomes:

  • updated: The card number and expiry date were updated.
  • closed: The card is closed and no longer valid.
  • new_expiry: The card expiry date was updated.
  • contact: Contact the cardholder for updated information.

The results of the account updater process will be reported as extraData in the notification payload. This allows you to retrieve the specific result of the update.

Here's an example of an account updater notification:

{
"result": "OK",
"uuid": "d94c0d72f3a36e21f16e",
"merchantTransactionId": "auto-d94c0d72f3a36e21f16e",
"purchaseId": "20240523-d94c0d72f3a36e21f16e",
"transactionType": "REGISTER",
"paymentMethod": "Creditcard",
"extraData": {
"lastCardUpdateDate": "2019-05-01",
"lastCardUpdateResult": "updated"
},
"returnData": {
"_TYPE": "cardData",
"type": "visa",
"cardHolder": "Alex Smith",
"expiryMonth": "5",
"expiryYear": "2029",
"binDigits": "41111111",
"firstSixDigits": "411111",
"lastFourDigits": "1111",
"fingerprint": "46f7adfeb0a123fb8fcbfasdf6171asd6b3dfas44834c",
"binBrand": "US",
"binBank": "Global Trust Bank",
"binType": "CREDIT"
"binLevel": "STANDARD"
"binCountry": "US"
}
}

In the example, the notification indicates that the last card update occurred on August 19, 2022, and the result of the update was "updated". The returnData field of type cardData contains the updated card information, such as the card type, cardholder name, expiry date, BIN details, and more.

With account updater notifications, you can stay informed about changes to your customers' stored cards, enabling you to maintain up-to-date payment information and provide seamless transaction experiences.

Network token notification

When a network token is created, you will receive notifications for any updates related to that token. These notifications are important for staying up-to-date with changes to your network tokens.

You will receive notifications under the following circumstances:

  • Asynchronous Tokenization: You will be notified when the tokenization process is completed, and the token has been successfully created.
  • Synchronous Tokenization: In the case of synchronous tokenization, the token information will be available both in the API response and within the notification.

The token's status and any associated metadata, such as card art, are reported within the extraData field of the notification payload:

  • extraData.networkTokenStatus (string enum): Current status of the token. Possible values are:

    • active: Token is active and can be used.
    • inactive: The token is not yet active.
    • suspended: The token has been suspended and cannot be used at the moment.
    • deactivated: The token is disabled and cannot be used anymore.
    • pending: Tokenization is in progress.
    • error: Error occurred during tokenization.
  • extraData.networkTokenMetadata (array, optional): Array of card metadata objects, if available. Each object includes:

    • mimeType (string): MIME type.
    • data (string): Image data. If the mimeType indicates a binary format, the data field will be base64 encoded. If a plaintext format is indicated, for example image/svg+xml, the data will be in plaintext.
    • width (number, optional): Width of the image.
    • height (number, optional): Height of the image.
  • extraData.lastNetworkTokenUpdateDate (string, optional): Date of the most recent update notification.

  • extraData.lastNetworkTokenUpdateResult (string enum, optional): In the case of a token update, this field indicates the result. Possible values include:

    • pan_changed: PAN has changed.
    • pan_expiry_changed: PAN expiry has changed.
    • token_expiry_changed: Token expiry has changed.
    • active: Token is active and can be used.
    • inactive: The token is not yet active.
    • suspended: The token has been suspended and cannot be used at the moment.
    • deactivated: The token is disabled and cannot be used anymore.
    • error: Error occurred during tokenization.

Here are examples of network notifications:
