Lifecycle of a recurring payment

The recurring payment starts on its effective date.

The payment gateway starts creating payments following the schedule determined by the recurring payment rule sent in the form of recurring payment creation (vads_sub_desc field).

Upon each installment, if the Instant Payment Notification URL when creating recurring payments rule is enabled and correctly configured, the merchant website will receive the payment result in their notification URL (IPN).

In case of failure:

  • the merchant will not be notified by e-mail,
  • the payment will not be automatically presented once again.
