FDMSRcECommerce Component

Properties   Methods   Events   Configuration Settings   Errors  

The FDMSRcECommerce component is an advanced tool used to authorize credit cards in both Mail Order (Direct Marketing) and eCommerce environments, where the customer is ordering products or services via the telephone or Internet. This component makes authorizing these types of transactions very easy.

Syntax

DPayments.DPaymentsSDK.Fdmsrcecommerce

Remarks

This component connects to the First Data Merchant Services (FDMS) processor, by way of the Datawire VXN transaction transport network. Transactions originating with these components go through Datawire, to the FDMS processor where the transaction is authorized. The result is then returned back through Datawire and received by the component. This component can be integrated into web pages or stand-alone Point Of Sale applications. Because all SSL communications are handled inside the component, any application or web page can be deployed without the need for expensive dedicated SSL servers.

The FDMSRcECommerce component makes authorizing Card-Not-Present Mail Order and E-Commerce transactions very easy by adding an additional layer of abstraction between the programmer and the protocol. There is no need to deal with raw sockets, TLS/SSL handshakes, or data packet formatting. The steps to setting up the component and authorizing a transaction are outlined below:

Datawire Setup

First, you must register and activate your account with Datawire. FDMS Rapid Connect will provide you with the following values:

The FDMSRegister component must be used to activate the merchant and receive a DatawireId. Once you acquire the DatawireId and receive your transaction URLs through ServiceDiscovery, you may begin to authorize transactions. For instance:


FDMSRegister.FDMSPlatform = FdmsregisterFDMSPlatforms.fpRapidConnect;
FDMSRegister.MerchantNumber = "000000999990";
FDMSRegister.MerchantTerminalNumber = "555555";
FDMSRegister.Config("GroupId=20001"); //Required for Rapid Connect

FDMSRegister.TransactionNumber = "1"; //any unique number will do.
FDMSRegister.URL = "https://stagingsupport.datawire.net/staging_expresso/SRS.do";
FDMSRegister.Register(); 
FDMSRegister.TransactionNumber = FDMSRegister.TransactionNumber + 1;
FDMSRegister.Activate();
FDMSRegister.ServiceDiscovery(FDMSRegister.PrimaryDiscoveryURL);
for (int i = 0; i < FDMSRegister.ServiceProviders.Length; i++) {
  FDMSRegister.Ping(FDMSRegister.ServiceProviders[i]);
  Console.WriteLine(FDMSRegister.ServiceProviders[i] + " = " + FDMSRegister.PingResponseTime);
}

To authorize a credit card set the MerchantId, MerchantTerminalNumber, and GroupId properties with the values supplied by FDMS Rapid Connect. Set the DatawireId property with the value retrieved by the FDMSRegister component after activating your merchant account. Set the URL property with one of the URLs you retrieved during ServiceDiscovery.

Transaction Processing

To being processing transactions first set the required merchant values. For instance:

fdmsrcecommerce.IndustryType = FdmsrcecommerceIndustryTypes.fitEcommerce;
fdmsrcecommerce.TPPID = "AAA000";
fdmsrcecommerce.MerchantTerminalNumber = "00000001";
fdmsrcecommerce.MerchantId = "1234";
fdmsrcecommerce.GroupId = "20001";
fdmsrcecommerce.DatawireId = "00011122233344455566";
fdmsrcecommerce.MerchantURL = "mywebsite"; //Required for ECommerce transactions
fdmsrcecommerce.ApplicationId = "RAPIDCONNECTVXN";
fdmsrcecommerce.URL = "https://stg.dw.us.fdcnet.biz/rc";

Next specify transaction specific information. These values uniquely identify the transaction to Datawire and FDMS.

fdmsrcecommerce.STAN = "112";
fdmsrcecommerce.TransactionNumber = "120013";
fdmsrcecommerce.OrderNumber = "12000503";
fdmsrcecommerce.ReferenceNumber = "123";
Then specify customer card and address information along with the transaction amount:
fdmsrcecommerce.Card.Number = "36185900055556";
fdmsrcecommerce.Card.ExpMonth = 4;
fdmsrcecommerce.Card.ExpYear = 2016;
fdmsrcecommerce.Card.CVVData = "123";

fdmsrcecommerce.CustomerAddress = "1307 Broad Hollow Road";
fdmsrcecommerce.CustomerZip = "11747";

fdmsrcecommerce.TransactionAmount = "1200"; //$12.00

Finally, submit the transaction by calling the Sale method.


fdmsrcecommerce.Sale();

The Code field indicates the result of the transaction. A code of 000 indicates success. For all other values please see the Response Codes section. Additional Response properties such as ApprovalCode, AuthorizedAmount, Text, AVSResult, CVVResult, and more, provide further details about the transaction response.

To perform subsequent operations on a transaction, such as calling Reverse to reverse a Sale, or calling Capture to capture a previous AuthOnly transaction the GetDetailAggregate method must be used to get details about the original transaction. This aggregate must be stored securely, it will contain cardholder information that is required for subsequent transactions. For instance:


fdmsrcecommerce.AuthOnly();

//Save the detail aggregate to use with Capture
string aggregate = fdmsrcecommerce.GetDetailAggregate();

//The aggregate must then be stored securely.
//At a later time the aggregate is retrieved in order to perform a capture.

//Capture
fdmsrcecommerce = new Fdmsrcecommerce();
...

//Specify the detail aggregate from the original transaction
fdmsrcecommerce.SetDetailAggregate(aggregate);

fdmsrcecommerce.Capture();

Transaction Types

In addition to a basic sale transaction, additional transaction types exist for other common operations. Not all transaction types are applicable for all components. Check the method list for applicable transaction types.

AuthOnly An authorization that must be Captured later.
BalanceInquiry Inquire about available balance.
Capture Captures a previous AuthOnly transaction for settlement.
Credit Credits funds to the cardholder. This is not based on a previous transaction.
Reverse Reverse a previous transaction. This is also used for timeout reversals.
Sale A basic sale, no other steps are required to complete the payment.
VerifyCard Verifies that a card is valid.

Note: FDMS Rapid Connect is a host capture system. No explicit calls are needed to settle or otherwise manage the batch.

Level 2 Transactions

The values required for Level 2 transaction depend on the card type. The following tables indicate which properties are valid for what card type:

American Express

Visa MasterCard
