The fetchDeltaSince method returns one or more Refund objects whose time stamp falls on or after the time stamp specified in the input. Limit the number of objects returned by specifying an upper limit on the time stamp as well, using the endTimestamp parameter.


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.

timestamp: the search criterion for selecting Refund objects to be returned. The time stamps of those selected objects are less than or equal to this value.

endTimestamp: the end-date and time stamp. Refunds with time stamps greater than this value will not be returned.

paymentMethod: an optional constraint that, if included, restricts the return to only those Refund objects whose original Transactions were conducted with this payment method. Specify this parameter with either the paymentMethod VID or merchantPaymentMethodId.


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

refunds: an array of one or more Refund objects whose time stamp falls on or after timestamp but before endTimestamp (if specified) in the input.


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