Get a Recurring Payment Status

This code steps you through the process of establishing a rebilling transaction for the purpose of assigning a Transaction ID. You can then use this Transaction ID to check the status of rebilling in the future.

This code uses BluePay's Rebilling Administration Interface.
For documentation on usage of this interface Go to: Library documentation

You can test for both outcomes:

Approved: When you pass odd dollar amounts, this returns an 'Approved' status.
Declined: When you pass even dollar amounts, this returns a 'Declined' status.

The following sample code calls a routine from our Code Library.

# BluePay Python Sample code.
# This code sample runs a $0.00 Credit Card Auth transaction
# against a customer using test payment information.
# Once the rebilling cycle is created, this sample shows how to
# get information back on this rebilling cycle.
# See comments below on the details of the initial setup of the
# rebilling cycle.
