This section covers a new set of messages that allows a PMS to retrieve reservation payment transaction data. These payment transactions are payments taken against a reservation via SiteMinders Pay product.
Each payment transaction will contain discrete details of the Payment and it's associated reservation and they should be treated as a single transaction. There can be multiple payments for a reservation, taken at different times during the reservations life cycle.
Each successfully processed transaction can then be confirmed back to pmsXchange, marking them as delivered. This follows a similar pattern to the asynchronous pull model of the reservation delivery flow currently used in pmsXchange. You can read more details about the new message flow here.
