Recurring Billing

recurring billingRecurring billing is great for all sorts of business types who want to provide easy and secure ongoing payments for their customers on a periodic basis. This is a perfect solution for customers who want to automate their monthly payments and great for small business owners who will never have to worry about late payments. Examples include gym memberships, cable bills, electric bills, subscription-based services, and more.

How Recurring Billing Works

To set this up, a merchant is required to get their customer’s permission upfront to run their card one time, store their information, and then continue to withdraw a specified payment on an on-going schedule. If you have a customer that purchases something for your business on a frequent basis, offering recurring billing might be a great solution for them.

How does recurring billing simplify credit card processing?

By automating payments, recurring billing simplifies credit card processing and steadies cash flow. Also, if a credit card number were to expire or a CVV code changes, customers have the ability to update their payment methods and amounts based on their budgeting needs. Business owners also get payments faster and on time make the process more efficient.

How does recurring billing work for non profits?

Much like recurring billing for gym memberships or cable bills, customers often want to make on-going donations to their favorite non profit organization. A non profit can set this up through a hosted payments form in order to streamline the donation process. For more information on accepting payments for non profits, click here.
