Create LBT Transaction

The Create Local Bank Transfer (LBT) Transaction request obtains account details for a transaction. The shopper must complete the transaction. Their account is not immediately debited. For more information on Local Bank Transfer, refer to the Local Bank Transfer guide.

Short payments

If the amount received from the shopper is less than the order total, this is considered a short payment. If a short payment requires your approval, send a Merchant Approve Transaction request with the transaction ID.
