How to setup alert for Online (swipeless) transactions only?

How would one add an alert preference for only transactions that occur online (not from a swipe)?   I was not able to figure it out from the available parmeters:

 

alertType

Required

string

The root cause for the alert generated, cuurently supported values are 'DECLINE_ALL','DECLINE_BREACHED_AMT','ALERT_BREACHED_AMT','DECLINE_BY_SPEND_LIMIT','ALERT_BREACHED_SPEND'

controlType

Required

string , Enum Values: * TCT_ATM_WITHDRAW , * TCT_AUTO_PAY , * TCT_BRICK_AND_MORTAR , * TCT_CROSS_BORDER , * TCT_E_COMMERCE , * TCT_FUNDS_TRANSFER , * TCT_CONTACTLESS , * MCT_ADULT_ENTERTAINMENT , * MCT_AIRFARE , * MCT_ALCOHOL , * MCT_APPAREL_AND_ACCESSORIES , * MCT_AUTOMOTIVE , * MCT_CAR_RENTAL , * MCT_ELECTRONICS , * MCT_ENTERTAINMENT_AND_SPORTINGEVENTS , * MCT_GAMBLING , * MCT_GAS_AND_PETROLEUM , * MCT_GROCERY , * MCT_HOTEL_AND_LODGING , * MCT_HOUSEHOLD , * MCT_PERSONAL_CARE , * MCT_RECREATION , * MCT_SMOKE_AND_TOBACCO ,

The valid transaction and merchant control types against which the alert needs to be configured, Transaction Controls valid values begin with: 'TCT_', for MerchantControls valid values begin with: 'MCT_'

Hey @phoenixj23,

 

Since your interested in alerts, I would recommend you to use Visa Transaction Controls. Please see its documentation here -
