Parameters for creating a receipt

Attention. This is an old version of the API. Switch to the Yandex.Checkout API.

The parameters for transmitting fiscal data are added to a usual payment form. Their transmission is required if you set up interaction with your online sales register via Yandex.Checkout (start using an online sales register from one of our partners and configure it accordingly in the dashboard, see Changes in the protocol for working under Federal Law No.54 (54-FZ)).

One additional parameter, ym_merchant_receipt, is added to the form and contains all required data.

Transition to PFD 1.05

A new fiscal data format (FFD 1.05) will be adopted on 1 January 2019. It requires the inclusion of additional parameters:
  • payment subject attribute (paymentSubjectType);
  • payment method attribute (paymentMethodType).

These parameters are optional in the protocol. In 2019, they become mandatory for the Tax Service, but right now the processing methods vary between online sales registers.

ATOL Online

To send new parameters, change the settings on the ATOL's side. How to do it:

  1. First, configure the process of sending additional parameters using our protocol.
  2. Then log in to your ATOL dashboard and switch to the new fiscal data format.

Correct order is crucial: if you switch to the new format on ATOL's side before you start sending the new data, the payments or receipts will not be properly processed.

Orange Data

You can start sending the new data. If you won't send them, Orange Data will add default values on its side.

ModulKassa and Online Receipts

You can start sending the new data. Your online sales register can't process it yet but there won't be any issues with payments or receipts.
