Authorize Sauce

The secret sauce for accessing the API. The Authorize APIs for transactions, recurring payments, and saved payments are all different and awkward to use directly. Instead, you can use Authorize Sauce, which unifies all three APIs into one coherent Pythonic interface. Charge credit cards, easily!

>>> # Init the authorize client and a credit card
>>> from authorize import AuthorizeClient, CreditCard
>>> client = AuthorizeClient('285tUPuS', '58JKJ4T95uee75wd')
>>> cc = CreditCard('4111111111111111', '2018', '01', '911', 'Joe', 'Blow')
>>> card = client.card(cc)

>>> # Charge a card
>>> card.capture(100)
<AuthorizeTransaction 2171829470>

>>> # Save the card on Authorize servers for later
>>> saved_card =
>>> saved_card.uid

>>> # Use a saved card to auth a transaction, and settle later
>>> saved_card = client.saved_card('7713982|6743206')
>>> transaction = saved_card.auth(200)
>>> transaction.settle()
