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.
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.

Supported Post-Processing Operations
iDEAL supports the post-processing operation Credit Memo via SEPA Credit Transfer. For more details on how to enable and configure refunds for iDEAL, please see the SEPA Credit Transfer page.
Credit Memo triggers transaction type sepacredit. The payment/invoice will be refunded, and the corresponding order in Magento order management will be updated to status Closed.
You also have the option of partial Credit Memo. Partial Credit Memo is possible until the payment has been refunded in full.
For a step-by-step guide to canceling, invoicing and refunding payments, go to our Post-Processing Operations Workflow page.
Please be aware that stock management is not included in the post-processing operations triggered in the Wirecard extension but only in Magento order management.
