Taking regular payments from users
You can use the Bango Platform to process recurring charges. For example, you might want to charge a user a small amount monthly or annually to maintain a subscription to a service you provide. The Bango Platform does not include subscription functionality: you must make the appropriate Bango Payment API requests at the appropriate times. However, you should let the Bango Platform know that a charge is related to a subscription: Bango supplies this information to payment providers for compliance checking, customer bills, and so on.
With recurring payments:
The Bango Platform records and reports on all transactions as normal. Bango supplies payment providers with information about your transactions to help confirm you are in compliance with their requirements.
Payment providers usually require that you distinguish charges made automatically (such as recurring payments for a subscription) from charges the user initiated (for example, "click to buy").
To identify a charge as a recurring charge made automatically: when you make the API request to authorize payment, include the property
subscriptionFrequency in the
extensionData of the request's body parameters. The value should be a string describing the frequency, for example
monthly. See Bango Payment / Merchant API reference / API reference overview.
