The on-line Credit Card
Charging Add-on provides the
technology to let you validate and charge a customer's credit cards from your PC.
In order to use this
add-on, you will need to have the following:
- A copy of
- A merchant number for your company to process credit cards
- A processing bank that processes your charges for you (be
sure the bank you use supports PC-Charge)
- The Credit Card Charging
The card processing module works with the PC-Charge
server application by capturing the credit card information in the payment section of an
invoice and sending it to the PC-Charge server to be processed. The PC-Charge server then
sends the credit card and sale information to your card processing company's server to be
authorized. Your card processing company's server sends back the proper authorization
to the PC-Charge server which returns the authorization to the PC-Charge client who
requested the transaction and updates the authorization field of the invoice payment
section, as shown below.
Configuring the System
An easy to use configuration form is used to
enter bank and merchant information for charging. You can also set security options to
prompt for a password when a user selects to process a credit or void transaction.

Processing a Charge
The Charge Credit Card form is a user friendly
form that allows users to process various types of transactions including sales, voids,
credits, post- and pre- authorizations.
Information about the cardholder and credit

invoice. When the OK button is pressed, the system passes the information to PC-Charge
which dials your processing bank to process the transaction and return an authorization
Viewing the Transaction History
You can view all transactions made through the
charging system. Information about each transaction including the transaction type,
status, user who performed the transaction and other pertinent information are displayed.
A search dialog is included to help you locate a specific transaction. You can also select
to print a selected transaction or all transactions.
The Credit Card Charging module includes
reports that are added to your Business! Reports list. These reports
print information about the transactions processed through the charging system. Since PC-Charge stores all the transactions in an Access database, you can modify the existing
