Dispute: Add File Evidence
You can submit an evidence file for a dispute through this method. You can only submit evidence for disputes that have a status of
result = gateway.dispute.add_file_evidence( "a_dispute_id", document.id, # see the example below for more details )
If the evidence is successfully added to the dispute, the result will be successful and will include the evidence object. Otherwise, check for validation errors.
if result.success? # evidence file added successfully result.evidence else p result.errors end
The unique identifier for a
Document Upload object. The document must have a kind of EVIDENCE_DOCUMENT.
If a dispute requires compelling evidence, use the following category codes to indicate what type of evidence you're submitting. Depending on the dispute reason code, additional validations may apply.
|Evidence of spending across multiple payment types for the same merchandise.|
|Evidence of merchant website or app access.|
|Evidence of a profile setup or app access.|
|Evidence the transaction was completed by an authorized signer that the cardholder knows.|
|Proof of delivery to the cardholder's company address.|
