Sends an authorization request.
[VB.NET] Public Sub Authorize()
[C#] public void Authorize();
This method sends an authorization request to the Vital/TSYS transaction server. If the authorization request was successful, the Code property will contain "00" or "85".
An authorization blocks funds on the customer's credit card, but does not actually transfer funds. In order for funds to be transferred and the transaction completed, you must settle the transaction. To do this, you must pass an XML aggregate containing the results of the transaction to the Settlement component. For example:
TSYSECommerce.Authorize(); TSYSSettle.DetailRecords.Add(new TSYSRecordType(TSYSECommerce.GetDetailAggregate()));
