Handling Silent Post Response

Keep in mind that the PayTrace API Secure Checkout will send the silent post transaction responses to the URL that is specified in the “Manage API Checkout” section of your PayTrace account or the Return URL that is provided when the order is validated. The Return URL should be pointed to a page that has the code from the below example. Silent Posts come back as POST and each Silent Post is logged in the PayTrace account under the Integration menu and API Logs. You can select Silent Post from the drop down and search for silent posts made for any completed Secure Checkout items.

This is an example of a silent post back on a sale completed through the Secure Checkout.

  • Please note that Requests where TRANXTYPE is set to “CreateCustomer” or “UpdateCustomer” will only return the OrderID and CustomerID. If the customer profile was created, the CustomerID value will be the same as OrderID. However, updated customer profiles will return the existing CustomerID as the CustomerID.
