7.6  Creating Cancel Reason Codes

When you stop (cancel) an AutoBill, you can indicate the reason for the cancellation by applying one of the Predefined Merchant Codes. If none of the predefined cancel reasons meets your needs, you can create your own Custom-Defined Merchant Codes.

CashBox supports three kinds of cancel reasons:

CashBox Reserved Codes—codes (0 through 99—currently only 0 through 5 are used) predefined by Vindicia and used by CashBox to cancel or terminate a subscription

Predefined Merchant Codes—commonly used codes (100 through 999—currently only 100 through 106 are used) predefined by Vindicia that you can apply to AutoBills you cancel

Custom-Defined Merchant Codes—codes (1000 and above) that you can define and submit in advance, and use when you cancel AutoBills. Custom cancel reason codes you define can be an alphanumeric string of up to 16 characters—for example: 1001 or N500 or End_Refund.The description can be a string of up to 255 characters

To create a Custom-Defined Merchant Cancel Reason, click the Manage tab and select Cancel Reasons.

The Manage Cancel Reasons page lists CashBox system-generated and predefined cancel reasons, and any custom cancel reasons you create.
