Retrieves the balance remaining on an EBT card.
[VB.NET] Public Sub BalanceInquiry()
[C#] public void BalanceInquiry();
A BalanceInquiry transaction requests that the host return the quantity of funds remaining in the customer's EBT Card. This transaction is not added to the batch and cannot be settled by the PTechHostSettle component. No charge is made to the customer's EBT card.
The EBT card is specified by the Card property. Both swiped and manual-entry are supported.
The AvailableBalance and/or LedgerBalance, fields will contain the card's current balance. Additional balance information may be returned in the BeginningBalance. If the BenefitType is "Cash Benefits" the CashAvailableBalance, CashBeginningBalance, and CashLedgerBalance may also contain information (these fields are not filled for the "Food Stamp" BenefitType).
