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 .
Automated Recurring Billing ™ ( ARB ) is a powerful tool that enables you to provide a scheduled recurring billing service to your customers. ARB is completely automated—there’s no manual entry of transactions required at each billing. The process is simple.
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.
