Continuous Authority transactions are processed through our system as “Repeat” payments.
If your business uses repeat billing, subscriptions, or you have customers who regularly buy from your business Continuous Authority allows you to take another payment without having to re-capture the details.
In order to use Continuous Authority you must first take a standard Payment from your shopper. This will include the capture of the card security code (CV2) and the expiry date.
Once this payment has been processed successfully you are able to perform a Repeat against the transaction.
The amount of the original Payment does not matter when you are performing a Repeat. You are able to repeat the transaction for any amount below or above the previous Payment or Repeat.
