This code shows how to pass in a swipe string from a Keyboard Emulation (KBE) swiper to the BluePay gateway in the SWIPE field in place of values for the card number and expiration date.

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 calls a routine from our Code Library.

// This code sample runs a $3.00 sales transaction using the payment information obtained from a credit card swipe.
// If using TEST mode, odd dollar amounts will return an approval and even dollar amounts will return a decline.//
