Automated Recurring Billing (ARB) is a very convenient and easy-to-use tool for submitting and managing recurring or subscription-based transactions. You are given the ability to take advantage of ARB's flexible features to enhance customer service and build customer loyalty, while at the same time reducing authorization declines and overall administrative costs.
The ARB service provides various methods for creating subscriptions. You can create a subscription in the Merchant Interface that includes the customer's payment information, a billing amount, and payment schedule. Or allow your online customers to choose installment payments from your custom payment form when you integrate your Web site directly to our ARB application programming interface (API). Then ARB will do the rest. It will generate subsequent transactions based on the schedule provided by you or your customer.
- Improve Billing Efficiency - With ARB, once the subscription begins, no additional labor is required through the life of the subscription. ARB also includes the ability to customize trial periods and pricing.
- Improve Security - ARB will eliminate the need to store sensitive data on computer systems, reducing the risk of compromised customer payment information.
- Enhance Loyalty - ARB will allow you to provide customers with a flexible, no-hassle billing plan using either a credit card or our electronic check service, eCheck.
- Reduce Costs - ARB eliminates many of the costs associated with manually billing customers, with no additional per-transaction costs. In addition, ARB will help you effectively manage your subscriptions with e-mail notifications of upcoming credit card and/or subscription expirations.
