Automated Recurring Billing (ARB) & Address Verification Services (AVS)

I have setup Authorize.net's Automated Recurring Billing in a system I have built, which works great.

The only downfall is when someone puts in bad billing information, AVS is not checked (and it returns successful). It only creates the account, and the payment will fail at the first time it is billed, which is often the next day.

How can I catch the bad billing information before we complete the transaction?

Thanks

You can run a auth_only AIM transaction with the CC info. Then just void after validation. Just remember there is a transaction fee for it.

Thanks for the quick reply. If the authoriation is submitted by $0, do you know if it still needs to be voided?

Thanks

Probably not. Although I'm not sure if all CC card allow, $0 auth_only or was that $.01 ??
