Sending data for receipts

Federal Law No.54 (54-FZ) prescribes to transmit information about payments to the tax service via special online sales registers. You can set up interaction with an online sales register in our service. This requires the following:

  • adopt an online sales register of one of our partners (additionally enter into contract with the Fiscal Data Operator and place this online sales register on record to the tax service)
  • specify under your personal dashboard that you will send data for the receipts via Yandex.Checkout
  • transmit the data for creating the receipts (under this protocol) to Yandex.Checkout.

In this case, additional steps for sending data for the receipts will be added to the general payment scenario. Process of paying varies depending on the moment when the data for the receipt are sent: before notifying about successful payment (paymentAviso) or simultaneously with it (you can select it under your personal dashboard).


We do not send electronic receipt to buyer: even if the buyer receives an email message about the payment, this is not a legitimate receipt. You can only send receipts to buyers via the Fiscal Data Operator.

Data for receipt before paymentAviso

In this case, we send data for the receipts to your online sales register and wait for the notice that they were delivered:

  • if the data are delivered, you will get a notification about successful payment
  • if the data are not delivered, the payment is cancelled.

Therefore the tax service always receives information about payment if it is successful.

Differences from the main scenario are in bold.

  1. User selects payment method and pushes Pay.
  2. The information that the user enters in the store's interface is transmitted to Yandex.Checkout. The data for the receipts is transmitted together with this information. See Transmitting details for the receipts in payment forms
  3. The user sees Yandex.Checkout's page for entering payment details with the payment method selected and the payment parameters specified.
  4. The user enters additional information (for example, bank card details).
  5. Yandex.Checkout sends a request for checking the order to the store (checkOrder).
  6. The merchant confirms the order's validity or refuses to process the payment.
  7. Yandex.Checkout sends the user a payment confirmation request. For bank card payments the user is sent to a 3-D Secure authentication page (if the issuing bank supports it).
  8. The user confirms payment (passes the 3-D Secure authentication process).
  9. If the merchant responds positively to the order verification request (checkOrder), the money is debited.
  10. The user sees the result — a page with a message about successful payment, or a page with an error message.
  11. The results page displays a Back to store link. The user can click it to go to the page that you specified the address for in the settings.
  12. We transmit details for the receipt to your store's online sales register.
  13. In response, online sales register transmits fiscalization details.
  14. If the details are received and the receipt is fiscalized, the store gets notification about transfer upon successful payment (paymentAviso).If online sales register does not respond within 5 minutes or returns error:
    • payment is cancelled and money is returned to the user
    • the store receives email: the payment is cancelled due to issues with the receipt transmitting.
  15. If the merchant responds positively to the notification about payment, the payment is considered successful.

Data for receipt together with paymentAviso

In this case, Yandex.Checkout sends everything simultaneously: notification on transfer to you and data for the receipt to your online sales register. If a problem occurs when transmitting the details, the tax service may fail to accept information about this payment.

Note. This scheme is automatically activated for stores selling digital products, the ones where customers get what they bought at the moment of payment.

Steps 1—11 are the same as when sending details before paymentAviso.

Then Yandex.Checkout transmits the following:

  • payment notification (paymentAviso) to the store
  • data for the receipt to the online sales register.

Further actions may vary.

Both notification and details for the receipt are delivered

This is the main success scenario; it is presented on the scheme.

12. Yandex.Checkout sends notification about payment to the store.

13. The store transmits positive reply.

14. We transmit details for the receipt to your store's online sales register.

15. Online sales register returns success of the receipt fiscalization.

The notification is delivered, the details for the receipt are not delivered

Payment made.

If your online sales register is not responding or returns error, we repeat attempts to transmit the details for the receipt for 7 days. After that, we message you the details were not delivered.

Both notification and details for the receipt are not delivered

Payment failed.

The tax service will get the payment receipt, so a receipt for return of this payment need to be created. In this case, we send details for creating the refund receipt to your online sales register.
