Setting up notifications of the final outcome of a deferred payment

It allows for the merchant website to be notified of an authorization request.

Example:

For a deferred payment with a capture delay of 60 days, the authorization request is not made at the moment of the payment. The merchant website will be contacted at the moment of the authorization request via the Instant Payment Notification URL upon batch authorization rule.

This rule is disabled by default.

  1. Right-click on Instant Payment Notification URL upon batch authorization.
  2. Select Manage the rule.
  3. Enter the URL of your page into the fields URL to notify in TEST mode and URL to notify in PRODUCTION mode.
