IBM Sterling Ideas

Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

IBM is transforming its request for enhancement (RFE) process. The purpose of the transformation is to provide a more consistent experience for you to submit requests and to enable IBM product owners to respond to your requests more quickly. For more information click here.

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,
1. Post an idea
2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you
3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notifications on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Ability to tie a payment refund request with the settlement and authorization transactions.

When processing payment refunds through the Adyen payment gateway, Adyen requires the refund request to be linked to the authorization id (PSP reference in Adyen terminology).

For processing refunds through Paypal, Paypal requires you to link the refund request with the Settlement request to successfully process refunds.

Currently, OMS does not link the refund request to either the settlement or authorization transactions recorded in the system.

How will this idea be used?

This enhancement will enable customers to integrate with payment gateway such as Adyen and Paypal without the need to customize their OMS implementation significantly. Without this enhancement, extensive customization are required in OMS to process refunds automatically.

    We have similar requirement for CREDIT CARD using BancaSella and PAYPAL.

    And we are doing all possible workarounds to address this issue.

    There are two different type of integrations from these Payment vendors.

    1) Creating an Order with Payment gateway and processing the payments within the boundary of the order i.e. multi tender in one request for authorization

    2) Creating authorization (one per card or multiple per card) and processing settlement and refunds.

    The behavior and user experience are both different for these integrations

    We had similar requirement for one of the US Based Luxury Fashion Brand, where we have implemented completely custom logic for refunding customer using respective Authorization ID / PSP Reference through their Payment Gateways (Adyen / PayPal), We would highly recommend this feature to be an OOB feature so that complex customization can be avoided.

    Below are high level points from our customization.

    1. We have created a Custom Table to store Collection Information like Order Information, Payment Key, Amount Collected and Authorization ID (PSP Reference No) etc.., These information are getting stored as soon as OMS settles the shipment invoice for an Order.

    2. During refund (return/appeasement) we call the extended API to get the required collection information from custom table for the Order, based on the refund amount, we select the Payment Method(s) and Authorization information against which refund request needs to be generated.

    3. Once respective Payment is selected for refund we update the Custom Table to reduce the Remaining Amount (Remaining Amount - Refunded Amount), initially Remaining Amount will be equal to the collected amount (Initial Amount)
