Submits a food stamp credit transaction, returning funds to an EBT card.
[VB.NET] Public Sub Credit()
[C#] public void Credit();
EBT credit (return) transactions are similar to debit credits in that they are real-time -- Funds are immediately added back to the customer's food stamp account, instead of the funds transfer taking place several days after settlement. EBT credits may use track2 data read from the card's magnetic stripe, or be manually keyed. Track1 data is not acceptable. The customer is required to enter enter his PIN number into a certified PIN Pad device, and both an EncryptedPIN and KSN (Key Sequence Number) are returned from the pad to the merchant, and must be submitted in the Credit/Return transaction.
Even though debit transactions are real-time, FDMS requires they be settled at the end of the day just like credit card transactions.
Important Note: You must ping your list of service provider URLs and update the URL property to the service provider with the shortest response time every 100 transactions, as well as when your application initially starts. This is not a normal ICMP ping - to determine the fastest transaction URL you must use the special Ping method inside the FDMSRegister component. (You may update your list of service provider URLs with the FDMSRegister component's ServiceDiscovery method).
