What are the minimum required fields I have to use in the PHP Web Console to make a Direct Payment API call?

These are the minimum required fields:
  • Provide a MerchantSessionID.
  • On the Card Owner page, check the box for an address.
  • On the Card Owner page, specify the Payer Country (United States) and Payer (must be a properly formatted email address). 
  • On the Address page, pass the Postal Code, Phone, Country Name, Country, State, CityName, and Street1.
  • On the PayerName page, pass the LastName and FirstName.

Note: If you use the Run Again button several times, you may get a script error. If this occurs, go back a page and try again.
