AuthorisationReferral request

When you process MOTO transactions, you may need to handle transactions with a resulting Declined status and a corresponding Referral reason.

If the shopper contacted their issuing bank and you have the authorisation code for the transaction, you can submit it in a batch file to update the transaction in the Adyen payments platform.

When we receive and process the batch file, we book a new Authorised journal entry for the transaction and then proceed with the standard workflow.

Mandatory sub-lines

The PaymentDetails and AuthoriseReferral sub-lines described below are mandatory when submitting a bank transfer authorisation request.

PaymentDetails

This sub-line specifies transaction amount and customer details.

Optional fields: if you do not populate one or more non-mandatory fields and leave them blank, you need in any case to insert delimiting commas because the Adyen payments platform expects a preset, fixed number of fields per line/sub-line.
