Recurring payments is a useful feature with multiple applications: memberships that require dues, subscriptions that need to be renewed and utility payments, to name just a few. Any merchant or business that would like to charge the same amount to the same payment card on a regular basis can do so with automated recurring billing.
1st US Merchant Services® offers a wide array of recurring payment tools through our web-based electronic payment gateway, Transaction Express™. Merchants can store payment information for future use in a “customer wallet” that can be associated with a customizable recurring profile.
The profile contains specific payment terms agreed upon between the merchant and customer, facilitating payment plans and automated payment processing. Recurring payments can be fully automated for the convenience of merchants and customers.
To set up a recurring payment, the merchant simply enters the specified charge once, chooses the frequency of payment (weekly, monthly, annually) and Transaction Express does the rest. The customer’s card is billed and a receipt is automatically emailed directly to them.
Automated recurring billing through 1st US Merchant Services’s Transaction Express is an efficient, convenient and hassle-free service that can help merchants build and manage their business growth.
