  • Purpose: for recording the information necessary to get paid by credit/debit cards
  • Fields:
    • if WhenInvalid is NOT NULL, then this number has been permanently destroyed/deactivated; any use of this number is therefore suspicious. Date is the earliest date it was known to be bad. Overrides isActive.
    • Address may be no longer necessary, except for handling legacy data
  • History:
    • 2009-07-09 moved to separate wiki page; no design changes
    • 2009-10-07
    • 2011-11-22 added WhenEnt and WhenUpd fields
      • removed CryptAddr, renamed CryptCard as Encrypted
      • added ID_Name
  • Future:
    • Address should go away, probably without any need to verify that ID_Addr agrees with it
    • Records with OwnerName need to have ID_Name set, and then the OwnerName field can be removed
    • isActive should eventually go away; probably the best thing is to wait until all isActive=FALSE cards have expired (end of Feb 2010), then set WhenInvalid to each card's expiry date.
