Automated Recurring Billing (ARB) http://www.authorize.net/arb An Authorize.Net value-add solution that allows merchants to create a recurring billing schedule or "subscription" for the purchase of goods or services. The merchant enters transaction and customer billing information, specifies a billing amount and billing interval and ARB does the rest, automatically generating subsequent transactions for the duration of the subscription. For more information about ARB, please see .
Once you have created a Automated Recurring Billing ™ ( ARB ) subscription you may edit the subscription properties, such as renewing a subscription by changing the end date or number of occurrences. You may also edit customer billing information, such as billing address or payment information.
Unlike standard transactions, Automated Recurring Billing ( ARB ) transactions are not authorized immediately. Once each scheduled transaction in a subscription has been submitted, which is usually at 08:30 GMT/12:30 AM PST for ARB transactions, the merchant will receive an email from the payment gateway indicating the transaction status. They will settle on the following transaction cut-off time set in the Merchant Interface. If the subscription start date is set to the current day, the first transaction in that subscription is processed the following day.
Authorize.Net Card Present accounts do not have the option for Automated Recurring Billing ( ARB ) or rebilling within the Merchant Interface. CP transactions require the swipe data for each transaction to be processed individually.
