How to Use a Token
This code steps you through the process of using a token to validate a customer's credit card information and capture authorization information for a charge against the card. Tokens can be used to process many types of future transactions such as payments, sales, refunds, and cancellations. Other returned information includes the status, a message, an address verification (AVS) result, and card verification data (CVV2) result.
The token that this code returns is an assigned Transaction ID. Depending on the interface you're using, this Transaction ID is either "Master ID" or "RRNO."
You can test for both outcomes:
Approved: When you pass odd dollar amounts, payment authorizations are returned with an 'Approved' status and authorization information is also captured.
Declined: When you pass even dollar amounts, payment authorizations are returned with a 'Declined' status and no authorization information is passed.
The following sample code makes method calls utilizing our ruby gem.

# BluePay Ruby Sample code.
# This code sample uses a token from a previously run transaction
# to charge the same customer $3.00.
# If using TEST mode, odd dollar amounts will return
# an approval and even dollar amounts will return a decline.
$ACCOUNT_ID = "MERCHANT'S ACCOUNT ID HERE"
$SECRET_KEY = "MERCHANT'S SECRET KEY HERE"
$MODE = "TEST"
$TOKEN = "TRANSACTION ID HERE"
# Merchant's Account ID
# Merchant's Secret Key
# Transaction Mode: TEST (can also be LIVE)
payment = BluePay.new(
# Sale Amount: $3.00
response = payment.process()
# If transaction was approved..
if (payment.get_status() == "APPROVED") then
# Read response from BluePay
