BalanceInquiry Method

Retrieves the balance remaining on a gift card.


public void BalanceInquiry();
Public Sub BalanceInquiry()


A BalanceInquiry transaction requests that the FDMS Closed Loop Gift Card system return the amount of funds remaining on the customer's Stored Value (Gift) Card. No charge is made to the customer's gift card. The Response PreviousBalance and NewBalance fields will contain the card's current balance.

The Response Code and Text fields indicate whether this transaction was successful.

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).
