Can I create a recurring subscription from Apple Pay?

[ Edited ]

Can I create a recurring subscription from Apple Pay? The API docs say the dataDescriptor value must be COMMON.ACCEPT.INAPP.PAYMENT. But Apple Pay uses a different dataDescriptor value. Does that mean that I can't create a subscription from Apple Pay? If not, how can I do it? Please show code examples in php.

 

Thanks,

Today it's not possible to create a recurring payment with an Apple Pay Blob, through Authorize.Net but it's certainly on our roadmap feature list.

Are we likely to see this any time soon?

 

Is it a feature provided by Braintree / PayPal for ApplePay payments on their platform.

Apple themselves 'allows' for a subscription / billing profile.

I can't comment on any specific dates but I can tell you this is currently in development and should be available in early 2018 (we have the standard industry freeze period between now and the end of the year).
