8. The PayPal Web Services API > 93. Retrieve Transaction Details with the API

Retrieve Transaction Details with the API

Given only a transaction ID, use the GetTransactionDetail API call with the API wrapper DLL to retrieve the details of the transaction.

The GetTransactionDetail API call is a more detailed in terms of the data it returns than the RefundTransaction call [Hack #91] . The initiating call is made in the same fashion, but the response object holds many types that you need to access to get the transaction details. These types are designed to hold information pertaining to the myriad of PayPal transaction types, so if you use PayPal only to process sales from your Shopping Cart (as opposed to eBay auctions or digital subscriptions), you might not need all the information it returns.
