retrieve card number

Is there a way to look up the card number's of past transactions through the api by providing the transaction id? I'm trying not to store card numbers in my database but i will need to be able to have the option to charge them after their first transaction. I'm coding for a bed & breakfast and they will need to charge them if they take towels, smoke in the room, etc.

Re: retrieve card number

This is not possible through any API. 


To accomplish what you want to do, charge users at a later date, use CIM. It allows you to create payment profiles which you can charge against at a future date. It's exactly what you need here.
