For directions on how to set up the WSDL link, create “$token” and “$client”, go to PHP Soap How-to.

try {         
  $res=$client->deleteCustomer($token, $custnum);     
catch(SoapFault $e) { 
  die("soap fault: " .$e->getMessage());  


This example uses the USAePay Java library. For directions on how to install the library and create the token/client objects, go to either the Java JAX-RPC Howto or the Java JAX-WS Howto.

try {
  //Set CustNum for Customer you want to delete
  BigInteger CustNum = BigInteger("12345678");
  //Delete Customer
  client.deleteCustomer(token, CustNum);
} catch (Exception e) {
    System.out.println("Soap Exception: " + e.getMessage());
