Re: "Webhook" VS "Silent Post" and custom fields

Hi Brian,

 

Thank you for your time and response.

 

I completely understand that clients don't like to redirect away from the portal. I agree it ruins the continuity of the experience and it also complicates the communication between systems. The only reason we went this route was due to PCI compliance. Incidentally we have developed several different credit card vendor integrations. In addition to Authorize.NET we have implemented PayFlowPro, PayFlowLink, FirstData, EPX, and a couple more. Some of them are straight API implementations, and some have the Hosted payment page. We made so many because many of our clients already had accounts with the various vendors and wanted to keep them. We also have some who require a PCI compliant solution, while others perfer the direct API implementations. Our Authorize.NET solution is one that needs to be PCI compliant.

 

You mention the "Accept" suite. I have only briefly looked it over, but so far it looks pretty good. I see it has PCI compliance across the various options. Unfortunately I don't think we have time to re-develop using this system. The sad state of things is the original Authorize.NET support representative I spoke with on the phone assured me I could simply copy the "Silent Post" URL and paste it into the "Webhooks" area and it should work without any extra effort. That is what I relayed to our CTO and Director of Development to convince them to go forward with the simple changes. Well, as you know it's not that simple, and it's been taking a while to try to get this working, so it looks like we are out of time.

 

Thanks for your suggestion though -- I will bring it up in our next meeting.

 

Regards,

Rob

Hi Anurag,

 

Thank you for your time and response.

 

I looked over your links and your proposed solution.  Unfortunately it looks like I would be using the API to charge the credit card, which I can't do because we need the Hosted Payment form to do the credit card transaction.  Mainly due to PCI compliance.

 

You can read my responses to Brian and Bhavana above to get some more details about our situation.

 

Best,

Rob

Hi Rob,

 

We're working on better support model for technical questions like this when they come through our phone support so I'm sorry you were misled on this issue.  If you do decide to move over to Accept please feel free to email developer@authorize.net and ask to be connected directly with Brian (they'll know who I am :-) and I'll be happy to correspond with you directly via email and help out with any aspects of the integration or any issues you may encounter.

Hi @Anurag,

Do you mean “refTransId”? That’s only there if the transaction that you’re getting details for is a linked credit, and it just lists the transId of the related transaction. 

 

Edit: Wait, I see "transRefId" there tacked on to the end. Is this new? I don't remember it being there before.

@Aaron_Actual  not sure how long back we added it but yes its returned if refId is passed in the createTransaction request . 

 

https://developer.authorize.net/api/reference/index.html#transaction-reporting-get-transaction-detai...

 

 

 

transrefId Merchant-assigned reference ID for the request.

If your request included refId, we will return the value in transrefId.

Well, just goes to show I've been away too long if I'm forgetting stuff like that :)

Re: "Webhook" VS "Silent Post" and custom fields

Could this be expanded so if you pass refId within "getHostedPaymentPageRequest", it will be returned in the related transaction details?
