Verify Credit Card Before ARB

Newbie question. So I'm looking to start a subscription-based service by using ARB. Before I sign the user up for a subscription, I would like to verify the credit card is good. This is my approach, please tell me whether or not this is correct. If not, Please let me know if there is another way.


  1. User enters credit card
  2. I send credit card over and put it into AIM (in case I need to bill the user later)
  3. I do a "charge card" but do a "authOnlyTransaction" (I think that's authorize but do not bill)
  4. Upon success, I enroll them in ARB


Is this correct or is there a better way to do this?
