[Emerald] Credit Card system

I am a little confused about the whole credit card processing thing. I know that
emerald batches out reports and then a program(IC Verify) does something with
that, and then a processor and then a bank. As you can tell, I have little to no
information on how to actually go about processing the cards and if someone could
fill me in on what needs to be done. I know that people are doing this and I
have a few questions:
1) If the account is made inactive due to the credit card not being approved, is
there any notification to this fact to anyone? Say the user, the account
2) How often do you have to batch the reports?
3) Is there any chance that this could be a real time solution? For example,
Emerald has made an account inactive due to bad credit card, user calls up and
wants to give a new credit card, is there any way to instantly batch this card
and get it approved and billed?
