    brd_arrow.gifbrd_arrow.gif transaction_type string 2

If you use Chase Paymentech or Vantiv, this field allows you to tell that payment gateway which transaction type is involved (examples: single or recurring transaction) when you process a customer's  payment information.

This field applies to credit cards and tokenized credit cards. If you don't pass a value into this field, it will default to -1 (use client configuration settings).

    • Configuration > Payments > Payment Gateways > Chase Paymentech > Gateway Options; and
    • Configuration > Payments > Collection Groups > Chase Paymentech > Collection Group Options.
  • Currently, only Chase Paymentech supports this field. Other payment gateways might not honor all of the allowable values for this field. You will need to check your payment gateway documentation for confirmation.
