The best way to set up customers for reoccuring payments

11 replies
I have a few customers that will be in a continuity program and will need to be set up to where their credit card is charged every month. What is the best way for me to set this up?

    If you're looking to bill a customer's credit card a specific amount each month than Paypal is the way to go.

    I'd just use Paypal if you're not already set up with a merchant account/payment processor. The nice thing is that it is pretty flexible, and you can set billing intervals to exactly what you need.

      My only concern with PAYPAL is that I have heard that they have a habit of freezing your account if anything happens. Thats the last thing I want. Is there any truth to that?

    Yes it happened to Us when we did a launch here in australia. Had a big list...and they shut our account down for 12 hours. I think they have a set limited that red flags you.

    But all was good, we called them and explained the situation, and then they took our halt off.

    They guy at the other end was quite helpful...and said next time we were doing a big lauch to call them first and let them know there could be lots of transactions coming through your account....he said all it takes is a quick phonecall.

        When they freeze your account, how does that work? Do they prevent you from withdrawing funds, or do they prevent you from just accepting funds?

      Do you forsee ever selling your site in the future?

      I've heard (this isn't first hand experience) that it may be easier to hand over a clickbank account rather than having to get your current subscribers to unsubscribe from you and move over to someone else.

      So I would say clickbank - they can take paypal too.
