Print REST API: Payment Receipt print issue

we're able to print only the order receipt using the Rest API, but not able to print the payment receipt. Would it be possible to utilize the REST Pay Display API to generate a receipt image or we can use Rest API to print payment receipt? This would greatly assist us in including price details for each order.

Here’s how you can approach this:

Using the REST Pay Display API

  1. Generate the Receipt Data:

    • Ensure that the data for the payment receipt is available and formatted correctly.
    • This includes itemized pricing details, total amount, tax information, and any other necessary details.
  2. Utilize the API to Create the Receipt:

    • Check the documentation for the REST Pay Display API to understand the endpoints and methods available for generating a receipt image.
    • Typically, this involves sending a POST request with the receipt data to an endpoint that returns an image or printable version of the receipt.

Example Approach:

Here is a generic example of how you might achieve this:

  1. Prepare the API Request:

                       
    json
    Copy code
    { "orderId": "12345", "items": [ { "name": "Product 1", "price": 10.00 }, { "name": "Product 2", "price": 15.00 } ], "total": 25.00, "paymentMethod": "Credit Card", "transactionId": "abcde12345" }
  2. Send the Request to the API:

                       
    bash
    Copy code
    curl -X POST https://api.yourpaymentprovider.com/v1/generate-receipt \ -H "Authorization: Bearer your_api_key" \ -H "Content-Type: application/json" \ -d '{ "orderId": "12345", "items": [ { "name": "Product 1", "price": 10.00 }, { "name": "Product 2", "price": 15.00 } ], "total": 25.00, "paymentMethod": "Credit Card", "transactionId": "abcde12345" }'
  3. Handle the Response:

    • The API should return a URL to the receipt image or a PDF file that you can then print or display.
    • json
      Copy code
      {
      "receiptUrl": "https://yourpaymentprovider.com/receipts/12345"
      }

Alternative Approach: Using REST API Directly for Printing Payment Receipt

If your payment processor's REST API supports generating and printing receipts directly, follow these steps:

  1. Check API Documentation:

    • Review the API documentation for endpoints related to generating and printing receipts.
  2. Send Request with Required Parameters:

    • Make sure to include necessary parameters like orderId, transactionId, and any other required information.
  3. Retrieve and Print Receipt:

    • The API response should include the receipt details or a link to download the receipt.
    • Use this response to print the receipt directly from your application.
