A sale is a transaction that is authorized and captured, or flagged for settlement.  A sale does NOT need to be captured, as it is automatically flagged for settlement.  A sale cannot be voided and must be refunded to reverse the transaction.

A sale can be entered by completing the following information:

Credit Card Number
The credit card number is the customers card number usually 15 or 16 characters in length.

Credit Card Expiration
The credit card expiration is the month and year of the expiration date that is displayed on the credit card. The expiration date must be entered in the format MMYY. For example, September 2019 should be entered as 0919.

The amount is the total amount the customer should be charged. The amount must be entered in the format XX.XX. For example, an amount of ten dollars must be entered 10.00.
