The Process Batch feature will allow you to upload a formatted text file containing records of transactions to be processed. This file can be either comma or tab delimited with each record on a new line. The file can contain records of a different type but each column must contain the same field for each record.
Once the file has been uploaded you will be able to reformat your columns to match the fields required by the processor. Below are links to some preformatted templates that can be used for this purpose.
How It Works
Interactions between you and your customer browser are not shown in Figure 1, because this process assumes the interactions to have accumulated into the transaction requests comprising the batch file.
The batch transaction request file is an ANSI-format text file with one transaction per line and a single TAB (ANSI 9) character separating each field. If a required field is not applicable to your needs (such as the Sub ID field for merchants with multiple sites), the required field must still be included in the record but should be left blank. None of the optional fields or their delimiters that follow the last required field needs to be supplied.
Each transaction record starts with a Transaction ID and a Record Type. The Transaction ID is supplied by you, the Merchant, and is used to link the batch file record to your database for later reconciliation of the transaction results. For example, you could pass a Customer ID or Account Number from your own software system as the Transaction ID. The Record Type tells Online Commerce Suite what to do with the remaining fields on the line; the meaning of each field depends on the Record Type.
See the Supported Record Types table below for details.
Because the data for each transaction includes a Record Type, you may submit different types of transactions in a single file. For example, you could submit a single file containing both credit card and check sales, and update the recurring database with new members.
If you have no programming expertise, the easiest way to create a file in the required format is to place each input field into separate columns in Microsoft Excel, with one record per row. Column A should contain the Transaction ID, and column B should contain the Record Type. Subsequent columns need to be filled in with the additional fields of the record format you wish to process. Save the file to disk using the Save Ascommand; when prompted for the name of the file, be sure to change the type from Microsoft Excel Workbook (*.xls) to Text (Tab Delimited).
