The fetchByVid method returns a Chargeback object whose VID matches the input, that is, it enables you to retrieve a Chargeback object by its VID.

When Vindicia adds a Chargeback object to its database by downloading the information from your payment processor or through your calling update() to create a Chargeback object, Vindicia assigns the object a unique identifier called VID. That VID is in the Chargeback object returned to you when you make calls to fetch chargebacks.

This call is useful for retrieving a specific chargeback because a Chargeback object does not have any other unique identifiers. Since there can be multiple chargebacks against one transaction, you cannot uniquely identify a chargeback with its associated Transaction object’s ID, reference number, or case number.


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.

vid: the Chargeback object’s Vindicia identifier, which serves as the search criterion.


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

chargeback: the Chargeback object whose VID matches the input.


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

Return Code

Return String


One of the following:

  • Unable to load chargebacks by VID input-vid: No match.
  • Unable to load chargebacks by VID input-vid: error-description.
  • Must specify VID to load by!


$accountVid = 'MyVindiciaAccountVID';

// Create a SOAP caller object

$cb = new Chargeback();
$cbVID = "a209408014a33fec3dcd4a3339d78efc33603bfe";

// now load a chargeback object by VID

$response = $cb->fetchByVid($cbVid);
if($response['returnCode'] == 200) {

$fetchedCb = $response['data']->chargeback;


else {

// The call was unsuccessful
print "Return code: " . $response['returnCode'] . "\n";
print "Return string: " . $response['returnString'] . "\n";
