Recurring or subscription payments enable you to receive payments from your customers at specified intervals (days, weeks, months, etc) without them having to go online each time and input their card details and go through authentication.
How recurring payments work
Your customers subscribe to the payment plan by making a payment on your subscription payment page or website/app. This is the only time they will be asked to input their card information.
Subsequently, your customers will be charged according to the specified interval and number of times. You can unsubscribe customers from payment plans at any time.
How to create a subscription payment plan
You can create a payment plan in one of three ways.
Create a subscription payment page, through the dashboard, where customers can be directed to make payments.
Create a payment plans page. However, customers can only be subscribed to these payment plans from your website or app.
You can also use the payment plans API.
Subscribing to a payment plan
Once a customer pays the first time for your subscription, either through payment pages or in your website/app, they are then subscribed to that subscription plan and charged at the specified interval.
Unsubscribing from a payment plan
Before each charge, an email notification is sent to the customer informing them of the pending charge and giving them the option to unsubscribe from this plan. You also have the option of unsubscribing customers from your payment plan yourself, through the payment plans page on the dashboard.
