In September we added Real-Time Funding guides, added new simulated auth parameters, indicated how to skip U.S. address validation, added a new field for ACRT, explained how to subsidize transactions, added support for international characters, removed a table, added info on subsidizing transactions, added a new guide on account holder refunds and clarified the use of the
id parameter. Click September 2022 to see the details.
Galileo offers a new product, Real-Time Funding (RTF), which is a simple way to set up a central account that supplies funds to cards at the time of authorization.

The Create Simulated Card Authorization endpoint has new input parameters to help you simulate a variety of card transactions such as preauths, completions and reversals. You will need to contact Galileo for setup before you can use these new parameters.
When using an enrollment endpoint to enroll a user with a non-U.S. address, you can prevent U.S. address validation by passing a non
_US value such as
ACRT: ach_return event message you can now add
ach_trans_id to help tie the event back to the original ACH transaction.
To the Authorization Controller API guide we added a note about one use case for real-time transfers: subsidized transactions.
We now support the Latin-9 ISO-8859-15 character set in name and address input parameters for the Program API. See International characters in Special Characters for details.
From the Disputes at Galileo guide we removed the table of product parameters at the end of the guide because those parameters are used only for legacy setups.
In the Authorization Controller API guide we added a note about using real-time transfers to subsidize (partially pay) authorization amounts from selected merchants.
We’ve published a guide about Galileo’s Account Holder Refund product which explains how to automatically issue a paper check to return remaining funds to an account holder once the account is canceled.
In the Customer ID Verification (KYC/CIP) guide, we clarified that when using Galileo's integrated ID verification process, the SSN or SIN must be passed in the
id parameter instead of the
id2 parameter. Galileo does not check for duplicates in the
id2 parameter, and
id2 values are not masked in the RDFs. We have also deprecated the SSNLV product parameter: VLDLV should be set instead.
