Gateway Transaction Tag Value Upgrade
The Gateway continues to grow, in order to accommodate for this; the Transactions Tag Value will be upgraded from 2.14 billion to 4.3 billion. Merchants need to ensure that they are saving the Transaction Tag value as a String, and not an Integer.
The upgrade will take place on the following environments and dates listed:
- Demo – February 2020
- Production – May 2020
Payeezy Gateway clients coming through the Web-Service API or Hosted Checkout (HCO) need to ensure that their API integrations and databases can handle transaction tag values exceeding 2,140,000,000. Otherwise, merchants may experience a disruption in processing transactions. Clients processing through the Real-time Payment Manager (RPM) should not see any impact.
