totalValueGross

  • must be > 0.00
  • must be equal to the amount provided in the authorize and charges calls
  • is calculated as follows:
    • totalValueGross = basketItems.sum(( item.amountPerUnitGross - item.amountDiscountPerUnitGross)* item.quantity )

amountDiscountPerUnitGross

  • must be > 0.00 (when provided)
  • can be maximum as high as the item.amountPerUnitGross of the respective basket item

amountDiscountPerUnitGross when providing a voucher

  • must be > 0.00 (when provided)
