Code samples

Note: Gateway API transactions are done with a different library than payment-page API. See the code sample comments for more info:

    *   Transaction name is 'Credit', once you create a new transaction passing this as parameter, 
    *   you need to set the mandatory data using the following methods:
    *   setTransactionInformation()
    *   setCardInformation()
    *   setShopperInformation

    $client = new GatewayClient();

    $transaction = $client->newTransaction('Credit', 'testMerchant', 'testPassword');
    $transaction->setTransactionInformation(2000, 'USD', 'order1456', '');
    $transaction->setCardInformation('4111111111111111', null, 'John Smith', '10', '2014');
    $transaction->setShopperInformation('Jane Smith', '334 Some Drive', '90001', 'Los Angeles', 'CA', 'US', '+1 213-XXX-XXXX', '');

    $response = $transaction->send();

    if ('000' === $response->errorCode) {
        $creditTransactionID  = $response->transactionID;
    } else {
        echo "Error {$response->errorCode} with message {$response->errorMessage}";

    PaymentGatewayConnector connector = new PaymentGatewayConnector(API_URL, ORIGINATOR, PASSWORD);

    CreditResponse response = null;
    CreditRequest request = new CreditRequest();
    request.setShopperName("Jane Smith").setShopperAddress("334 Some Drive");
    request.setShopperZipcode("90001").setShopperCity("Los Angeles").setShopperState("CA").setShopperCountryCode("US");
    request.setShopperPhone("+1 213-XXX-XXXX");

    request.setCardHolderName("John Smith");

    try {
        response = connector.doCreditTransaction(request);
    } catch (Exception e) {

    if (response != null) {
        if (TransactionResultCode.TRANSACTION_SUCCESSFULLY.equals(response.getErrorCode()) {
        System.out.println("Success: " + response.getErrorMessage());
        } else {
        System.out.println("Failure: " + response.getErrorMessage());

   const gateway = require("payxpert")("123456", "GreatP4ssw0rd").gateway;

                    const body = {
                        customerIP: "",

                        // Success
    var client = new GatewayClient(OriginatorConfig.ORIGINATOR_ID, OriginatorConfig.ORIGINATOR_PASSWORD);
    var transaction = client.NewCreditFundsTransferTransaction();

    var amount = 5000;

    transaction.SetTransactionInformation(amount, "EUR", "50", customerIP);
    transaction.SetCardInformation("4111111111111111", "", "CSHARP SDK", "10", "2024");
    transaction.SetShopperInformation("CSHARP SDK", "MICROSOFT ENV", "666", "REDMOND", "WA", "US", "12445", "x@x.rr");

    var response = transaction.Send().Result;

    if (response.IsSuccessfull())
        Console.WriteLine("Credit is ok. New transaction ID: " + response.transactionID);
        Console.WriteLine("Error performing credit: " + response.errorMessage);
