ARB Invoice Number and Settled Transactions Report

Hi our client uses ARB with silent post to process recurring charges.   Each month, the ARB charges the card, then the silent post calls the AbleCommerce site and a new invoice is generated to represent that month's shipment.

 

The client wants the newly generated invoice number to show on the Settled Transactions report, not the current invoice number associated with the ARB.

 

We tried using an update-subscription routine that updates Order.InvoiceNumber on the original ARB after the silent post arrives. But this appears to be too late - the card transaction has already occured and the old invoice number was already associated with the transaction.  So the report would be fine next month, but this month they can't match invoicenumber -> invoicenumber.

 

Any suggestions on how this could be addressed?  Is there a way for ANet to notify the day before the transaction attempt is made?  I'm thinking that's what we really need here.

 

Regards,

Joe Payne

Invoice # in the transaction can not be updated once the transaction is created.

Nothing that wound do. You will need to keep track of when the schedule payment is on your end.
