Soap API v1.4


Void a specific transaction.


This function will void a transaction that was previously authorized. Once a transaction has been voided, it will not show up on the customer's credit card statement. Customers who have online banking that allows them to see “Pending” transactions may see the voided transaction for a few days before it disappears.

You can only void a transaction that hasn't been settled yet. A transaction is settled when the batch that it is in has been closed. If the transaction has been settled, you must run a credit instead using the runCredit method. If you run a credit, both the credit and the initial charge will show up on the customer's credit card statement. (See the runCredit method for more details.)

The transaction to be voided must be retrieved using the reference number (RefNum) assigned to the transaction by the gateway. The RefNum is assigned by the gateway and returned when a transaction is processed. To find a missing RefNum, use the searchTransactions method.
