About the Merchant Account Additional Parameters Form

The Additional Parameters sub-type records list the additional parameters for this merchant account. This feature enables an organization to pass additional data (besides fraud mappings) to include in a merchant account transaction.

Additional parameters sent to a merchant account are listed on the Additional Parameters tab of the Merchant Accounts record.

Each record specifies one field in Aptify that maps to a parameter used by the merchant account. Then, while processing a payment, Aptify passes the value of the specified field to the processor.


Note: that the information stored on this tab is in addition to any fraud mappings. For example, with PayPal, only the following parameter names can be used on this tab:



Other items within the list of parameters that are available from the merchant account that are reserved for fraud detection scenarios must be included on the Fraud Mapping tab of the Merchant Accounts record.
