Convert the Booking to a Purchase order#

Once the booking is committed, it will last according to the event characteristics. When you are ready to transform a booking into a purchase order, before making the payment in the next step, it is necessary call to purchaseBooking endpoint to convert the booking into a purchase, so the previously created order state changes from booking to purchase. Notice that "items" parameter indicates which items will be in the purchase.

  • order-code: the identifier of the booking you wish to convert into a purchase order
  • items: a list of the items you wish to include in the order.
curl --location -g --request POST '' \--header 'Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded' \--header 'Authorization: Bearer {{access_token}}' \--data-urlencode 'orderCode={{order-code}}' \--data-urlencode 'items=33730'--data-urlencode 'items=33731'--data-urlencode 'items=x'

Confirm the Created Order#

After you have the certainty that your customer has fulfilled the payment, you can finally close the order. The key elements are the order code and a list of payments (please notice that the list of payments are enclosed in an XML structure).

  • order-code: the identifier of the order you wish to confirm
  • payment-type: the type of payment this amount belongs to. Could be CASH, CREDIT_CARD or others, please check our glossary for more types.
  • paid-amount: the amount of this payment. There can be several payments, but the addition of all the amounts must match the order total amount.
curl --location --request POST '' \--header 'Accept: application/json' \--header 'Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded' \--header 'Authorization: Bearer {{access_token}}' \--data-urlencode 'orderCode={{order-code}}' \--data-urlencode 'payments=<payments xmlns=""><payment xmlns="" type="{{payment-type}}" value="{{paid-amount}}"/></payments>'

If you don't consume all the items in the booking you can create multiple purchase orders from one booking, as long as the items that you select for each order are not bought in a previous one.
