Payment In Advance

Karin Kraus edited this page Mar 21, 2019 · 3 revisions

With Payment In Advance, the consumer places an order and pays after receiving the merchant's payment details (IBAN/BIC, due date). When the transaction is completed the merchant delivers the goods or services. The purchase is balanced with the delivery.

Payment In Advance Configuration

  1. Select System/Configuration/Payment Methods.
  2. Click Wirecard Payment In Advance to open the Payment In Advance configuration page: Payment In Advance Configuration

Payment Action

Payment On Invoice transactions allow only payment action Authorization, which triggers the transaction type authorization for payment method Payment On Invoice.

Successful transactions (i.e. payments for orders) are not yet confirmed, but the consumer receives an invoice with a provider transaction reference ID and merchant bank account details. Once the consumer has successfully transferred the outstanding amount, the transaction will be captured.

Send Additional Information

If this field is set to Yes, additional data will be sent for the purpose of fraud protection. This additional data includes billing/shipping address, shopping basket, and descriptor.

Note: The additional information includes the descriptor even if the descriptor option is set to No.

Descriptor

The descriptor is the text representing an order on the consumer's bank statement issued by their bank. It provides information for the consumer, as it associates a specific debit on the consumer's account with the respective purchase in your shop.

  • If the descriptor is set to No, the consumer's bank generates a default entry for each purchase.

  • If the descriptor is set to Yes, the default descriptor text consists of up to 9 characters of the shop name and the full order number. The default maximum length is 20.
    To modify the descriptor, use the method getDescriptor in the file lib/WirecardEE/PaymentGateway/Service/PaymentHandler.php.

    • Allowed characters: umlaut, 0-9,a-z,A-Z, , +, ,, -, .
    • Max. length: 27 characters.

Set this feature to Yes to send the descriptor with each request/response.
