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

try { 
  // CustNum for Customer to Copy  
  // $toMerchToken is setup with sourcekey
  // for merchant being copied to
  $NewCustNum=$client->copyCustomer($token, $CustNum,$toMerchToken);
} catch(Exception $e)  { 
  echo 'Error: ' . $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 {
  //CusNum From Customer to copy
  BigInteger CustNum = BigInteger("12345678");
  // toMerchToken is the token setup with a source key
  // for the merchant being copied to.
  BigInteger NewCustNum = client.copyCustomer(token, CustNum, toMerchToken);
} catch (Exception e) {
  System.out.println("Soap Exception: " + e.getMessage());

For directions on how to set up the WSDL link and create the “token” and “client” variables, go to the C Sharp .Net Soap How-to.

usaepay.ueSecurityToken totoken = new usaepay.ueSecurityToken();
            usaepay.ueHash hash = new usaepay.ueHash();
            string sourcekey = "NEW SOURCE KEY";
            string pin = "new pin";
            totoken.SourceKey = sourcekey;
            hash.Type = "md5"; 
            hash.Seed = Guid.NewGuid().ToString();
            string prehashvalue = string.Concat(token.SourceKey, hash.Seed, pin);
            hash.HashValue = GenerateHash(prehashvalue);
            totoken.PinHash = hash;
            string CustNum = "89147";
            string NewCust;
                NewCust = client.copyCustomer(token, CustNum, totoken);
