Transaction ID

A transaction ID is a unique string of numbers and letters attached to a particular transaction. Every transaction ID is unique. A bank can use the transaction ID to request further information about a specific purchase from a merchant, and the merchant can then use the ID to pull up the details of that purchase in their system. Transaction IDs also streamline the process of issuing a refund for a purchase.
