Charge a Customer

This code steps you through the process of charging a customer's credit card.

There are three outcomes when processing credit card transactions:

  1. Approved
  2. Declined
  3. Error

'Approved' transactions can be charged against customers' credit cards. 'Declined' transactions can't be charged. As a result, in order to test the process of charging a customer's credit card, you must first pass an odd dollar amount. This returns the transaction with an 'Approved' status. You can then charge the credit card to complete the transaction.

An error could result from a variety of conditions such as missing data, invalid card numbers, and expiration dates provided in invalid formats.

The following sample code makes use of various headers and source files.
