Authorize Method

Sends a Gift Card transaction.


public void Authorize();
Public Sub Authorize()


This method sends a Gift Card authorization request to the Vital/TSYS host. The type of transaction sent is based upon the value of the TransactionType property. If the request was successful, the Code property will contain "00".

Note that only ttPrepaidCardPurchase transactions are settled with the TSYSSettle component. All other transactions (including ttGiftCardPurchase) take place in real time. Instead of using this component to authorize Prepaid Card purchases, you may opt to use the TSYSRetail component instead. However, this component allows you to support PartialRedemption, and will also return the prepaid card's available balance in the Balance property.

.NET Standard Notes

To call this method in an asynchronous manner call AuthorizeAsync instead. When the method completes (or an error is encountered) the AuthorizeCompleted event will fire.
