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

their debit or credit card.

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

Due to the different banks that we use, each account we
offer has a slightly different repeat billing method depending
on your preference. Therefore please make sure to read the
relevant information that is supplied once the account is
set-up. However, here
you will find an initial guide.
Please note that we can provide processing for businesses wanting
to provide memberships, vouchers and collective buying
schemes. However certain rules apply due to Visa
and MasterCard terms and conditions
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.
