IPN Callback Parameters

If the IPN Callback URL is set in the Merchant settings, upon receiving funds in any of the wallet addresses generated by the getpaymentwallet endpoint or invoices created by the createinvoice endpoint, an HTTPS POST will be made to the Callback URL with the following parameters in urlencoded format.

Parameters:

Name Type Description
ref string reference tag to this payment wallet
invoice string receiving invoice_id if this an invoive payment, null if it is not an invoice payment.
wallet string receiving wallet address.
amount number amount of the incoming payment
fee number merchant API processing fee + the exhange fee if the auto-exchange to USDZ has been enabled.
currency string any of the supported currencies (USDZ, EURZ, LTC, BTC, ETH or USDT)
exchange* binary 0: if auto-echange to USDZ has NOT been done.
1: if auto-exchange to USDZ has been done.
xamount* number actual incoming payment amount if auto-exchange to USDZ has been done, null otherwise.
xcurrency* string actual incoming currency if auto-exchange to USDZ has been done, null otherwise.
xrate* number applied exchange rate if auto-exchange to USDZ has been done, null otherwise.
txid string blockchain txid/hash
zxid string ZixiPay transaction id
time number Transaction time (Unix time)
sig string HMAC-SHA256 signature (will be null if IPN callback hash key has not been set in the Merchant Settings)

* exchange, xamount, xcurrency and xrate are used when Automatic exchange to USDZ is activated in the Merchant Settings or this was an invoice payment with enabled multicurrency.

VERY IMPORTANT: If there was an error/technical problem during IPN callback, our system would try up to 5 times until it is done successfully and nevertheless there is a tiny chance your system receives more than one IPN callback for the same transaction. Your IPN callback handler must always watch for duplicate callbacks by checking zxid (ZixiPay transaction id) or a method of your choice to avoid double deposit/credit on your side.

IMPORTANT 1: If the receiving end is behind a firewall, ZixiPay’s IP addresses and TCP port 443 needs to be permitted to pass through.

IMPORTANT 2: Callback is HTTPS only, so SSL needs to be enabled and valid on the receiving end.
