Gift Card Fund

Overview

The StoredValueFund API is used to add money to a stored value balance. Typically, this API is called when a consumer returns an order and the seller supports refunding to the gift card. The Fund API is tender-specific, and is not enabled for all stored value tenders.

Like all other storedvalue APIs, Fund is a synchronous API, where the client is waiting for the response. In case of timeout, the webstore or Order Management System retries the transaction at a later time.
