Custom Program
Returns a recordset of payment (credits) history to a customer account.
Recordset Paging
Large data sets can be retrieved using recordset paging. A maximum date range of three years (1095 days) is allowed. When retrieving a large data set, pass the number of records desired (500 per page maximum) as the 'recordCnt' parameter value. Each response will include the total number of records found related to the date range as 'total_record_count'. The number of pages available will be returned as 'number_of_pages'. The current page being returned is communicated simply as 'page'. The API consumer can request the different pages of the recordset by passing the desired 'page' number as the page parameter.
