Diagnose Interface

The Diagnose interface allows you to make a request to the Payment Gateway which will verify the status of the transaction. If the requested transaction has a capture or chargeback, the status of this will be sent back.
If the Diagnose requests are sent correctly to the system, the Diagnose interface will send back the transactions via XML Response.

When you use the diagnose interface you can specify what type or status of transaction you need.

Request with transaction type

To initiate a diagnose interface for the specific transaction type you need to send a request to

POST https://sandbox.powercash21.com/pay/backoffice/tx_diagnose

In your request, include:

  • merchantid: The merchant identification number is issued during account creation.
  • type: The type of transaction like capture, chb (chargebacks), refund, retrieval_request, cft
  • start_date: Start time frame, from what date you want to request transactions.
  • end_date: The end time frame.
  • signature: The signature field contains a 40-figure hexadecimal value. This signature value is a checksum designed to protect the merchant account from unauthorized access.

📘

The end_date is inclusive, e.g. if you want to get a list of all transactions imported into the payment gateway on the 1st of May 2015 for example, your start_date and end_date would both be <01.05.2015>.

Request example

merchantid=api_test&type=capture&start_date=01.01.2012&end_date=13.02.2012&signature=b46676315eefecf32df9831e31398565f7e1d4eb
