FTP File Format - Digital

Introduction

This document provides an overview of the FTP File Format used to submit eGift and Virtual Open Loop orders to Blackhawk Network’s Hawk Marketplace Platform.

  • Order File: This file contains the orders to be placed and is uploaded to Blackhawk Network’s FTP server.

  • Success File: This file is created by Blackhawk Network as a confirmation the order was processed successfully.

  • Exception File: This file is created by Blackhawk Network as a confirmation that the order contained invalid records. Invalid records must be corrected and the entire order file resent to Blackhawk Network for processing.

  • Bulk Return File: This file is created by Blackhawk Network and contains eGift URL’s that the client sends to their recipients. This file is only produced for bulk eGift orders and is not supported for Virtual Open Loop orders.

👍

Blackhawk Network recommends a maximum of 5,000 order line items per order file. If you have more than 5,000 line items you will need to break your order into multiple order files of 5,000 records each.
