Use case

Use Case 1 Credit card payment involving commission.

The customer has selected a preferred Offer and the Seller is now requesting creation of an Order. The customer is paying with credit card. The Seller is expecting a commission of 10%. The amount to be paid is €150 and the commission to the Seller is €15. Since the payment is with credit card there will be two data sets of PaymentInfo – one for the credit card receivables and one for the cash settlement of the commission. The PaymentInfo related to the Credit Card dataset will have receivables of €150 and payable of €0. The PaymentInfo related to the Cash dataset will have receivables of €0 and payable of €15 resulting in Net Clearance Amount (negative)–€15. The Carrier will then send request for clearance related to the cash payment method type so that the commission obligation is settled via the settlement process.

Use Case 2 Cash payment involving commission

The customer has selected a preferred Offer and the Seller is now requesting creation of an Order. The customer is paying cash. The Seller is expecting a commission of 10%. The amount to be paid is €150 and the commission to the Seller is €15. Since the payment method type is cash there will be one PaymentInfo data set and it will indicate receivable of €150 and payable of €15, resulting in Net Clearance Amount of €135. The Carrier will then send request for clearance for €135 to settle via the settlement process. The remittance date is provided in the PaymentInfo and as such agreed to be 9 April 2019.

Use Case 3 Payment with EasyPay involving a commission

The customer has selected a preferred Offer and the Seller is now requesting creation of an Order. The customer is paying cash, but the Seller is committing the sale with payment method type EasyPay. The Seller is expecting a commission of 10%. In the OrderCreateRQ the Seller outlines receivables for the Carrier of €150 and payable to the Seller €15 with Net Clearance Amount of €135. The Carrier then asks the EasyPay platform for authorization for €135 not €150. The EasyPay platform provides the authorization ID for the transaction guaranteeing €135 to the Carrier. The carrier sends the Order View RS to confirm the sale and requests clearance for €135 including the authorization ID from the EasyPay platform. The settlement manager immediately requests the transfer of €135 from the EasyPay platform and transfers the funds to the Carrier.

NetClearanceAmount is not applicable when transactions are reported for settlement using DISH reporting format, such as NDCLink. In such cases the carrier reports the “Amount” from the Payment Processing Summary and any other related amounts such as commissions are reported separately.
