Authorize.Net Automated Recurring Billing (ARB)
Automated Recurring Billing (ARB)ô is a convenient and easy-to-use tool for submitting and managing recurring, or subscription-based, transactions. You can take advantage of ARBís flexible features to enhance customer service and build customer loyalty, while reducing authorization declines and overall administrative costs. This is an additional feature that can be added to your Authorize.Net account for an additional monthly fee.
ARB provides multiple methods for creating subscriptions. Simply create a subscription in the Merchant Interface that includes the customerís 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). ARB does the rest, generating subsequent transactions based on the schedule provided.
- Improve Billing EfficiencyOnce a 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 SecurityEliminates the need to store sensitive data on computer systems, reducing the risk of compromised customer information.
- Enhance LoyaltyARB allows you to provide customers with a flexible, no-hassle billing plan using either a credit card or our exclusive electronic check service, eCheck.Net®.
