Charging a card

You can charge a card in 2 ways. Once you have generated a card token using simplify.js, you can charge the card using the token. Alternatively, you can also charge a card by passing the card details.

For more information on the simplify.js go to Payments Form

var Simplify = require("simplify-commerce"),
client = Simplify.getClient({
