Used to clear (force) a food stamp voucher that was previously voice-authorized.
If any aspect of the EBT system is down, the merchant may call the issuing state's processor for a voice authorization for Food Stamp transactions only. The merchant must complete a Manual Voucher form (provided by FDMS or state EBT contractor) to obtain the authorization number, the voucher number and the client's signature. This puts a hold on the funds in the client's account for the amount of the voice authorization. To receive payment for the transaction, the merchant must process a Voucher Clear transaction within ten days of the voice authorization. To send a voucher clear, just send a normal Sale or Credit transaction with the VoucherAuthCode and VoucherNumber properties set.
Note that only food stamp transactions may be voice-authorized, attempting to send a VoucherAuthCode or VoucherNumber in a Sale transaction when the BenefitType is set to Cash Benefits will result in an error.
