Step 2: If your API call is executed successfully, you will see an XML response with Tokenid, ReturnURL and RedirectURL (as shown in the example response given below).

A Tokenid is a unique alphanumeric value. The Tokenid can be used to find out if funds were added successfully or if there was an error adding funds. The RedirectURL should be used to submit credit card details.
