Always The sum of credits against the referenced transaction would exceed original debit amount.

hi Team,

I am using sandbox account  and i tried to do refund Call for Settled Transaction. but evenry time i am getting error code 51 with error text The sum of credits against the referenced transaction would exceed original debit amount.

 

I am sending all correct values (Tran ID, Credit Card Num,Expiry date and Amount).Below is my code sample.

 

ApiOperationBase<ANetApiRequest, ANetApiResponse>.MerchantAuthentication = new merchantAuthenticationType()
{
name = objAPICred.APIUserName, //ApiLoginID,

Item = objAPICred.APISignature,// ApiTransactionKey
ItemElementName = ItemChoiceType.transactionKey,

};

var creditCard = new creditCardType
{
cardNumber = strCardNum,
expirationDate = "XXXX", 
};

 

 var paymentType = new paymentType { Item = creditCard };

 

 var paymentType = new paymentType { Item = creditCard }; var transactionRequest = new transactionRequestType
{
transactionType = transactionTypeEnum.refundTransaction.ToString(), // refund type
payment = paymentType,
amount = Convert.ToDecimal("1.00"), 
refTransId = "40020244370" 
};

   var request = new createTransactionRequest { transactionRequest = transactionRequest };

var controller = new createTransactionController(request);
controller.Execute();

Re: Always The sum of credits against the referenced transaction would exceed original debit amount.

Hi @Instancy2018, the errors 51 and 55 occur when you are trying to refund more money than the original transaction or what's left of it.

 

Let's say the original transaction was for $100. You can refund as many times as you want as long as the sum of all refunds is less than or equal to $100.

 

As soon as you cross $100, you will start seeing errors. That's because you're trying to give away money which is not part of the original transaction.

 

Hope this helps,

Gabriel

Re: Always The sum of credits against the referenced transaction would exceed original debit amount.

So, would you know the best solution for this situation:

  • Customer places order for several items for $100 total. We do AUTH_ONLY at that time and save authorization ID.
  • We use CIM to charge customer CC at the time that items are shipped. So there are multiple transactions, which total up to $100. (using the Authorization ID would only apply to first transaction, so we use CIM to ensure all transactions go thru)
  • We need to refund entire order of $100. But there is no single transaction where the amount = $100.00
  • Do we need to use ECC, and supply the CustomerProfileID and CustomerPaymentID, instead of a "refTransID" in order for the refund to work?
