Soap API v1.2


Find a CustNum (assigned by the gateway) using a CustID (assigned by merchant).


This method allows you to use the CustID - a customer identification number assigned by the merchant at the time the customer account is created - to find the gateway assigned CustNum associated with the customer's stored data.

The CustNum is required for several customer data storage management methods, including addCustomerPaymentMethod, updateCustomer, and deleteCustomer.
