Visa Checkout Purchase Correction

A Visa Checkout Purchase Correction is a call to Moneris to restore the full amount of the Visa Checkout Purchase transaction to the cardholder’s card. It also updates the customer’s Visa Checkout transaction history.

This transaction is sometimes referred to as "void" or "correction".

This transaction can be used against a Visa Checkout Purchase or Visa Checkout Pre-Authorization Completion transaction that occurred on the same day provided that the batch containing the original transaction remains open. When using the automated closing feature, Batch Close occurs daily between 10 and 11pm Eastern Time.

If the batch has already closed, please refer to Visa Checkout Refund.

Visa Checkout Purchase Correction mandatory values

Value Type Limits Set method Description
Order ID String 50-character alphanumeric vDotMePurchaseCorrection.setOrderId(order_id); Merchant-defined transaction identifier that must be unique for every Purchase, Pre-Authorization and Independent Refund transaction. No two transactions of these types may have the same order ID.

For Refund, Completion and Purchase Correction transactions, the order ID must be the same as that of the original transaction.

The last 10 characters of the order ID are displayed in the “Invoice Number” field on the Merchant Direct Reports. However only letters, numbers and spaces are sent to Merchant Direct.

A minimum of 3 and a maximum of 10 valid characters are sent to Merchant Direct. Only the last characters beginning after any invalid characters are sent. For example, if the order ID is 1234-567890, only 567890 is sent to Merchant Direct.

If the order ID has fewer than 3 characters, it may display a blank or 0000000000 in the Invoice Number field.
Transaction Number String 20-character alphanumeric vDotMePurchaseCorrection.setTxnNumber(txn_number);
Used when performing follow-on transactions. (That is, Completion, Purchase Correction or Refund.) This must be the value that was returned as the transaction number in the response of the original transaction.

When performing a Completion, this value must reference the Pre-Authorization. When performing a Refund or a Purchase Correction, this value must reference the Completion or the Purchase.

Visa Checkout Purchase Correction optional values

Value Type Limits Set method Description
Customer ID String 50-character alphanumeric vDotMePurchaseCorrection.setCustId(custid); This can be used for policy number, membership number, student ID, invoice number. This field is searchable from the Moneris Merchant Resource Centre.
Status Check Boolean true/false mpgReq.setStatusCheck (status_check); Status Check is a connection object value that allows merchants to verify whether a previously sent transaction was processed successfully. To submit a Status Check request, resend the original transaction with all the same parameter values, but set the status check value to either true or false. Once set to “true”, the gateway will check the status of a transaction that has an order_id that matches the one passed.
  • If the transaction is found, the gateway will respond with the specifics of that transaction.
  • If the transaction is not found, the gateway will respond with a not found message.
  • Once it is set to “false”, the transaction will process as a new transaction.
Things to consider:
  • The Status Check request should only be used once and immediately (within 2 minutes) after the last transaction that had failed.
  • Do not resend the Status Check request if it has timed out. Additional investigation is required.
