The fetchByTransaction method returns one or more Refund objects associated with the Transaction object specified in the input.

With Vindicia Subscribe, you can issue multiple partial refunds against a Transaction as long as the amount of each refund is less than the Transaction amount, and the sum of all refunds does not exceed the Transaction amount.

If you are reporting refunds to Vindicia for chargeback processing only, multiple partial refunds may have been issued, and reported, against a single Transaction. Use this method to return all refunds listed against a specific Transaction.


srd: sparse response description, a SOAP string (which must be a JSON object), in which you specify the elements you want returned.This parameter enables the calling system to constrain a method call to return only components you specify. This gives you greater control over returned content, and improves response time within the Vindicia platform by reducing the processing needed for the call.

Some fields are required, either practically or in the WSDL, and will be returned regardless of the srd. A null srd returns the complete response.

transaction: the Transaction object that serves as the search criterion. Identify this object with either its VID or your transaction ID (merchantTransactionId).


return: an object of type Return that indicates the success or failure of the call.

refunds: an array of one or more Refund objects associated with the Transaction object specified in the input.


In addition to those listed in Standard Return Codes, this call returns:

Return Code

Return String


No transaction specified to load by!


Unable to load refund: No match for transaction.


$txn = new Transaction();

$refund = new Refund();
$response = $refund->fetchByTransaction($txn);

if($response['returnCode'] == 200) {

$fetchedRefunds = $response['data']->refunds;

// process fetched refunds here

if ($fetchedRefunds != null) {

foreach ($fetchedRefunds as $fetchedRef) {

// process a fetched refund here

print "Refund VID " . $fetchedRef->getVID();
print "Refund amount ". $fetchedRef->getAmount();
print "Refund timestamp ". $fetchedRef->getTimestamp();
