Pagination

You'll notice there are variables for limit and page. This is because, in theory, this query could return multiple results. You would use these variables to loop through the pages of returned results.

However, for a single card query for a balance check, in reality, you're only ever going to get back one card (or no cards, if no matching card is found), so you shouldn't need to worry about looping through results for this particular use-case.

If no cards are found

If no cards are found for your query, the API will respond with blank JSON for “Data”:

{
"data": {
"Cards": {
"data": [],
"total": 0,
"per_page": 1
}
}
}
