Recurring Billing Service

Recurring Billing Services

A standard payment gateway feature from Planetauthorize™

The Planetauthorize™ Recurring Billing feature enables merchants to manage and automate their customer subscription billing process. The Planetauthorize Recurring Billing Service allows merchants to accept all major credit cards and electronic checks.

Recurring Billing streamlines the process of billing customers on a recurring schedule and eliminates the need for merchants to incur the security risk inherent in storing credit card and ACH data at their location. The Recurring Billing service is included with the Planetauthorize payment gateway service at no additional cost.

Recurring Billing Service

The payment gateway has two distinct Recurring methodologies:

Subscription Based Recurring Model - Merchants set a unique billing schedule for each customer. For example, a merchant may establish a billing cycle for Customer A of $20 on the 15th of every month and Customer B of $50 on the 1st of every month.

Plan Based Recurring Model - Merchants establish pre-defined billing plans and link customer(s) to the specific plan. For example, a merchant may offer a variety of services at different price points. An important benefit to the Plan Based Model occurs when the merchant updates a plan - a single change affects many customers all at once, instead of updating each customer subscription individually.

Available Recurring Billing Cycles

Merchants can choose one of nine different payment schedules, including:

  • Recurring Billing Service Specific Day of the Month
  • Recurring Billing Service Daily
  • Recurring Billing Service Weekly
  • Recurring Billing Service Monthly
  • Recurring Billing Service Bi-Weekly
  • Recurring Billing Service Twice-Monthly
  • Recurring Billing Service Every Four Weeks
  • Recurring Billing Service Bi-monthly
  • Recurring Billing Service Quarterly
  • Recurring Billing Service Semi-Annually
  • Recurring Billing Service Annually

  • In addition, merchants can specify a recurring billing cycle and number of recurring payments . Once the payment schedule is established, Planetauthorize will automatically bill the customers’ credit card or checking account on the specified schedule. An optional email can be sent to the customer and/or merchant that contains the results of every recurring transaction (e.g. approved/declined).

  • Recurring Billing Service Identify upcoming credit card expiries
