Does an ARB Subscription Authorize the card?

In setting up an ARB subscription I did not think about authorizing the card to make sure it has the funds/is valid. In creating a subscription is there no automatic authorization? Should I run an authorize method as well? If the card is not charged right away would running an authorize be standard practice?

 

I'm working in C# MVC application in sandbox btw.

Hello @bobbydoogle 

 

A new recurring billing request does not currently validate the card data submitted.  Instead, you will need to do that within your application.
