Retrieve

Retrieve is a request that gets details about a past transaction, such as the transaction type, amount, cardholder or vaulted shopper, credit card, processing info, and so on.

Note: If you are using the API + Hosted Page Hybrid solution, this can also return transactions created in Hosted Payment Pages.

Tip

You can test out a request that hits our sandbox in real-time. Follow the instructions here to use the "Try It!" feature on the right side.

Request Content

No content is required in the request body. Enter the relevant IDs in the request URL, as follows:

Retrieve based on Transaction ID

Enter the transaction-id into the web service URL, in the format: services/2/transactions/{transaction-id}

For example: services/2/transactions/1011582369

Retrieve based on Merchant Transaction ID and Merchant ID

Enter the merchant-transaction-id and merchant-id into the web service URL, in the format: services/2/transactions/{merchant-transaction-id},{merchant-id}

For example: services/2/transactions/3,456

Response Details

If successful, the response HTTP status code is 200 OK. The response contains the retrieved card-transaction resource (see card-transaction). If you passed metadata in the original transaction request, this metadata will also be retrieved.

Note: Non-reusable cards will not be returned as a payment method.
