Auto Recurring Billing with SIM

is it possible to use ARB with the Server Integration Method. If so, how would I go about doing that. I already have a set up using SIM for regular billing.

Re: Auto Recurring Billing with SIM

Authorize.Net does not currently offer a hosted ARB form. You must host your own form if you wish to collect customer payment information for the purpose of creating an ARB subscription within your account using ARB API.

 

ARB (Automated Recurring Billing) is a recurring payments service that allows merchants to schedule and manage recurring payments (subscriptions) without needing to store secure payment data on their server and prevents the requirement of running a recurring billing software/application on their server. ARB subscriptions can be created and managed via API or via the Merchant Interface. An SSL certified server is required to submit ARB API.

More information about these connection methods can be found at our Integration Center at http://developer.authorize.net/ where you can find resources such as:

- Sample Code
- FAQ's

Are there any plans by Authorize.net to provide a hosted ARB solution for SIM integration?

Re: Auto Recurring Billing with SIM

We too need a hosted ARB.  We are using SIM precisely because it addresses most of our PCI concerns.  I don't know why we would then use ARB because it would put us back in the position of requiring a full PCI audit and remediation.  Would there a way to rebill the credit card/bank account on a monthly basis after a successful SIM transaction?  Without it, our users need to logon every month to perform the exact same transaction.

Re: Auto Recurring Billing with SIM

You can create an ARB subscription from a SIM through the control panel. But as of right now there is no way to do it with an API.

Re: Auto Recurring Billing with SIM

Will Auth.Net execute a silent post (relay response) each month upon a successful recurring payment?

Re: Auto Recurring Billing with SIM

They will issue a Silent Post. Relay Response only happens when a successful payment is made via SIM.

Re: Auto Recurring Billing with SIM

And just FYI to all, we have told the development teams of the need for SIM and ARB to work together. No timeframes I can quote of course, but we've let them know there is definitely a need for it.

 

Thanks,

Re: Auto Recurring Billing with SIM

Is there a way to have the user update their credit card information after they do a SIM and we update the SIM to be recurring?  If not, what happens when the user's credit card expires?
