Charging a Credit Card

Step 1. Tokenize the Card

Post properly contstucted JSON (see sample below) to one of theses URLs. 

If you are using an API Key you got for a Sandbox account make sure you use the Sandbox URL. Even though you won't need your API Key for this request.

Sample JSON
	"card": {
		"expYear": "2020",
		"expMonth": "02",
		"address": {
			"region": "CA",
			"postalCode": "94086",
			"streetAddress": "1130 Kifer Rd",
			"country": "US",
			"city": "Sunnyvale"
		"name": "emulate=0",
		"cvc": "123",
		"number": "4111111111111111"

You should get back a bit of JSON like this

  "value": "c6901930-7047-47d3-a80d-5885aad48b6b"

your token is in the value property.


You can find Intuit's docs on this process here -

Intuit also has a bunch of test card numbers, and ways of simulating errors you can use here. -

Step 2. Charge the Card Using the Token

Post properly constructed JSON (see below) to this URL

Make sure you use your API Key as the user name with Basic Authentication.

  "cardToken": "ea8d19f2-094a-415f-a30d-1a5adfb65f2e",
  "amount" : "80.02"


  • Content-Type : 'application/json'
  • Accept : 'application/json'


the response should look like this. If the "status" is "CAPTURED". then the charge went through.

  "created": "2016-11-05T19:45:52Z",
  "status": "CAPTURED",
  "amount": "80.02",
  "currency": "USD",
  "token": "07084b07-9985-4035-a039-f6d02199067a",
  "description": "",
  "avsStreet": "Pass",
  "avsZip": "Pass",
  "cardSecurityCodeMatch": "NotAvailable",
  "id": "EE3G4LDE6O4Z",
  "context": {
    "recurring": false,
    "mobile": false,
    "deviceInfo": {}
  "authCode": "306329"
