Gateway specific fields

When interacting with a Bambora (formerly Beanstream) gateway to run transactions, you can add ref1 as a gateway specific field. This can be used to pass in a dynamic descriptor for the transaction. Your account needs to be setup for Dynamic DBA for this to work correctly. Contact Bambora (formerly Beanstream) gateway technical support to set it up. Make sure ref1 is part of the DBA Suffix.

If you would like to make a recurring charge, you will need to send the recurring field with a value of true. This will skip CVV validation in your request.

shipping_email may also be specified.
