Recurring Payments  

The repeat billing facility, also known as continuous payment authority or recurring payments, is an internet-based equivalent of direct debit facilities. It enables your customers to pay for goods or services in installments - agreeing for you to take fixed or variable amounts from their debit or credit card.

What is the repeat billing facility?

The recurring billing tool allows you to create, update, and search for recurring billing records. Once you set up your recurring billing records, we do the rest, processing the recurring transactions for the amount, at the frequency, and over the time period that you specify. With all our payment processing accounts the recurring billing option is provided FREE.

Repeat payments can be set-up manually using the virtual terminal (high risk account) or online using the API or batch upload tools (all accounts) found within your customer management system (CMS).

MasterCard recently announced changes on how authorisations for Recurring and MOTO transactions have to be sent. MasterCard is no longer allowing pre-authorisations for Recurring and MOTO to be sent out for all MasterCard transactions. Instead, MasterCard now states that Recurring and MOTO transactions must be sent out as final authorisations.
