ARB Status Question

Hello All,

 

I have successfully setup a subscription website were visitor can subscribe to a service and be billed monthly for it. However, is there a way that I can automate the process from that point on. For example I wrote a script to check the status of a subscription and it came back Successful I00001 but the subscription I checked was Suspended!! So why would that come back as successfull when it wasn't. So is there a way that I can create a script that could go out every night and check all the members to see if any have been declined? If so do you have a sample XML snippet I could use?

 

Thanks,

 

Frank G.

Re: ARB Status Question

I could really use some help here.... Can anyone help guide me were to go please?

 

In a nut shell what I am looking to do it this...

 

I already have a script in Classic ASP creating successfull ARB subscriptions. However when I use the ARB Sample script to check the status of a subscription it comes back Successfull but the subscription has been suspended for a couple days. Why is it coming back successful? And how do I tell if the subscription is Suspended?

 

Please help!!

 

Thanks,

Frank

Re: ARB Status Question

As stated in the pdf at http://developer.authorize.net/api/arb/

The Successful just indicate the request process successfully.

The field you should be looking for in "Status" and not the "code" and "text".
