PayTabs Node.js Package makes integration with the PayTabs payment gateway very easy by providing a ready-made payment class that handles the card entry and, billing & shipping information and completes the missing details.

To void a transaction means that the previously authorized/held amount from a previous auth transaction will be released back to the cardholder's bank account from his own bank side, as it was kept on hold there. In this article, we walk you through how to use and manage the below function:


let transactionCreated = function ($results){
console.log($results);
}

paytabs.queryTransaction(
transactionDetails,
cartDetails,
transactionCreated
);


Void requests are available for ONLY authenticated "Auth" transactions that are NOT fully captured yet.


Through out the article we will use the transaction types clarified in our What is "tran_type"? solution article.

Sample Response Payload


To process a capture request, you have to pass a tran_type that MUST be void” and the transaction reference of the original authenticated "Auth" transaction that you want to void, as shown in the below sample:


let transaction = {
ref: 'TST2229801363947', // the previous auth transaction ref
typ: 'release', // release: partial | void: full
cls: 'ecom'
};

let cart = {
id: 'VOID100001',
currency: 'EGP',
amount: 100, // the amount to release
description: 'partial void test'
};

let transactionDetails = [
transaction.ref,
transaction.typ,
transaction.cls
];

let cartDetails = [
cart.id,
cart.currency,
cart.amount,
cart.description
];

let transactionCreated = function ($results){
console.log($results);
}

paytabs.queryTransaction(
transactionDetails,
cartDetails,
transactionCreated
);


Void requests are available for ONLY authenticated "Auth" transactions that are NOT fully captured yet.
