What are Recurring Payments?

Recurring payments are often referred to as autopay.  Your customers give you authorization to charge cards or debit bank accounts to pay for goods or services on a regular, recurring basis.  Payments continue until the end of the billing term or until the customer cancels the service. 

Recurring payments can be used to pay for any type of goods or services.  Most Americans regularly pay household bills, car loans, mortgage, rent, insurance and other monthly bills with autopay.  Recurring billing is a familiar and trusted payment method for US consumers. 

Companies in all types of businesses use recurring billing models.  Common examples of recurring billing include subscriptions and memberships, entertainment, repayment of loans, property management, and health clubs.  However, businesses selling any type of product or service can benefit from recurring payments, particularly if the amount of the payment is the same over a period of time.

Recurring billing is also great for installment payments to make it easier for customers to pay for a higher ticket item over a period of time.  An example of this is “3 easy monthly payments of  payments of $99.95”.  This is useful for all types of businesses.   In fact, even dentists and doctors commonly offer recurring payments for procedures that are not covered by insurance. 

Recurring billing ensures prompt payments, protects cash flow, and reduces billing and collection expenses by automating payment processing.  Recurring payments enhance customer satisfaction by making it convenient for customers to do business with you.


Recurring Billing Features / Benefits

  • Different initial and recurring amounts. Different amounts can be specified for the first billing and subsequent billings. Great for offering special rates or trial periods.  Or larger down payments on products followed by smaller payments for installment billing.

Tokens Keep Debit /Credit Card Recurring Payments Safe

Protect sensitive card information with tokenization.  When a card is processed, sensitive information is replaced with a randomly generated unique token.  The tokens associated with the payment are stored in the secure vault in the payment processing gateway.  Recurring payments use the encrypted tokens for processing.


Account Updater Service for Debit / Credit Card Recurring Payments

One in five US credit & debit cards are reissued each year. Cards are reissued for many reasons including lost / stolen cards, data breaches,  expired card dates, and bank mergers.  Regardless of the reason, updated card data needs to be obtained for a recurring card payment to be approved. 

Advanced payment processing technology now automates the process of updating card info.  When a card is declined, the updater service connects with the card issuing bank to obtain the new card data.  The recurring payment is then approved.

  • Save time, money & expense required for manual updates.
  • Stabilize cash flow. Recurring billing continues uninterrupted. 
  • Increases the lifetime value of customers.
  • Improves customer satisfaction.

Although account updater services are exceptionally helpful, the service will not be able automatically update some cards.  In these instances, you still may need to contact customers to obtain the updated card information.


Benefits of ACH / Electronic Checks to Accept Recurring Payments

Many companies that have recurring billing models discover that recurring electronic check payments provide more stability long term and protect cash flow better than card payments.  Recurring payments debited from bank accounts prevent revenue leakage because bank debits are more stable than card payments. The reason for this is easy to understand.

Bank accounts rarely change.  It’s simply too much hassle to change bank accounts.   Most Americans receive direct deposit of wages to bank accounts.  And pay recurring bills through debits from banks accounts. 

Since bank accounts remain stable over time, there is seldom a need to update payment information. Revenues streams continue to flow without interruption.

Therefore, it’s wise for all companies with recurring billing models to include the both card & electronic checks as payment methods.  Remember, the more ways customers can pay you, the more money you make.


Applying for Recurring Payments Merchant Accounts

Applying for an recurring payments merchant account is a straight-forward process.  You submit an application along with supporting documentation about your company. Application is always free with no obligation.  Accounts are approved in 1-3 days. 

Supporting documents include: Color copy of ID for signer on account, bank statements, processing history, voided check from depository account, and business formation documents.

It’s helpful if the signer on the recurring billing merchant account has good personal credit.  If credit is not good, adding a co-signer with good credit will help get the account approved. 

Once the application package is received, the underwriter team verifies the information on the application form.  Then, supporting documents are reviewed.
