An Adjust request allows for adjusting transaction amounts to any amount that is less than or equal to the original transaction amount and greater than zero. A transaction cannot be adjusted to more than 30% above its authorized amount.
Amounts may be adjusted for the following transaction conditions:
- Approved Sale that is not yet settled
- Forced Sale that is not yet settled
- Authorization that is approved and not yet settled
- Refund that is not yet settled
Please note that amounts for cash advance transaction may also not be adjusted.

Example of Parsing an Adjust Amount Request Response
‘declare tools to loop through the response and store the current name / value pair Dim arrResponse() as String Dim arrPair() as String Dim Counter as Integer ‘declare the tools to store the values of the appropriate responses Dim strError As String Dim strResponseMessage As String ‘check to make sure the response was not empty/invalid if strResponse <> “” and inStr(strResponse,”|”) > 0 and inStr(strResponse,”~”) > 0 then arrResponse = split(strResponse, “|”) ‘split the response into an array of name/value pairs for Counter = 0 to uBound(arrResponse)-1 arrPair = split(arrResponse(Counter), “~”) If UCase(arrPair(0)) = "ERROR" Then StrError = strError & arrPair(1) ElseIf UCase(arrPair(0)) = "RESPONSE" Then strResponseMessage = arrPair(1) End If next Else StrError = StrError & “The response from the PayTrace API was invalid." End if If StrError <> “” then MsgBox “Amount adjustment was not successful per the following error: ” & StrError Else MsgBox “Amount adjustment was successful: ” & strResponseMessage End if
