eChecks and SIM PHP code example



Can anyone provide an example of code to use - for SIM and eCheck.  I have a snippet below that only results in this error:

The following errors have occurred.
(99) This transaction cannot be accepted.


We are using SIM with a hosted form for CC payments and that works fine. We are approved for Echeck. I'd like to use SIM, not AIM.  I took this snippet from the working CC code and changed the X_Method field to "ECHECK".  That's as far as I got. I was hoping to see the hosted form change to one in which bank info is entered instead of credit card info. When in the authorize account, I don't see anything to set on the hosted form about this, so was hoping it just sensed what to do by changing the X_method, but that is not working.  Help!?  Thanks!



<form id="f" name="f" class="form-horizontal" method="post" action="">
<input type='hidden' name="x_login" value="<?php echo $api_login_id; ?>" />
<input type='hidden' name="x_fp_hash" value="<?php echo $fingerprint; ?>" />
<input type='hidden' name="x_amount" value="<?php echo $amount; ?>" />
<input type='hidden' name="x_fp_timestamp" value="<?php echo $fp_timestamp; ?>" />
<input type='hidden' name="x_fp_sequence" value="<?php echo $fp_sequence; ?>" />
<input type='hidden' name="x_description" value="<?php echo $description; ?>" />
<input type='hidden' name="x_line_item1" value="item1<|><|>Membership Registration<|>1<|><?php echo number_format($amount,2); ?><|>N" />
<input type='hidden' name="x_invoice_num" value="<?php echo $formid; ?>" />
<input type='hidden' name="x_po_num" value="<?php echo $formtype; ?>" />

<input type='hidden' name="x_method" value="ECHECK">
<button type="submit" class="btn btn-success" >Checkout to Pay</button>

Re: eChecks and SIM PHP code example

Thanks!  The link brought to another page which gave me a clue to what was wrong.  And that was....


The fingerprint requires the amount to generate correct.  I was putting the amount in the code after the fingerprint. I moved the amount variable ahead of the fingerprint and now it works!  I am getting a different error now - but I think its just because I am testing with a made up bank account number.
