Simulating settlement

How can you simulate the settlement of a transaction in the sandbox.

Overview

You can simulate the settlement of a transaction (or part of a transaction) by using the Simulate settlement.

Simulating a transaction settlement

To simulate the settlement of a transaction, use the POST /simulate/settle operation and provide the parameters as shown in the table below.

Parameter

Type

Description

transaction_id
required

string

The ID of the transaction to settle, for example 002e0f0e-e39d-4351-876c-afcad30d9c37.

amount

string

Transaction amount as a decimal string with two digits of precision, for example 45.50.

You can query this transaction using Retrieving transactions and Retrieving account balances.

An example of a request to settle a transaction is shown below.

curl --request POST \
