Response Variables

This documentation is for the legacy Helcim Gateway. New merchants should refer to the Helcim Commerce API documentation.

Each response variable is returned as a value pair (i.e.: response=1). Each value pair is separated by a carriage-return and line feed. If the responseMessage or noticeMessage variables contain more than one error, each error is further separated by a line feed.
