Payment Notification with Cost

Multiple payment notification methods

Apptus eSales RESTful API includes two different payment notification methods. The recommended notification method to use is Payment Notification with Cost.

Back-end operation only

The payment notification with cost can not be made as a front-end operation with the JavaScript library.

The payment notification with cost is to be sent when the visitor has placed an order of one or more products and completed payment. The parameter paymentToken must be submitted in the request to notify cost.

The paymentToken is created by stringifying the payment object, see the request examples, and signing it with the MessageAuthentication class. The parameter customerKey must be present in the payment object.
