Payment Methods For Recurring Plan

Paddle Payment Gateway

ARMember provides two different payment methods for paid subscription/recurring type of plans.

  1. Auto Debit Method
  2. Semi Automatic (Manual) Method

In the Back-end administrator user will be able to decide which method will be allowed by each payment gateway while configuration of at Configure Plan + Sign up Page.

Select Payment Method

If the administrator user wants to allow the members to choose the payment type then the admin can select the option “Both”, if this option is selected then at the setup form the member will be able to select the payment type as per their requirements.

ARMember Payment Mode

Let’s understand how both payment method works:

Auto Debit Method

If the user has selected “Auto-debit Method” while purchasing the plan, or if at the back-end only auto-debit method is allowed then, the user doesn’t need to worry about payment of every recurrence (billing cycle). Payment will be taken by selected gateway automatically at start of every recurrence. If payment fails at any occurrence, then “Failed Payment Action” will be taken place as set at while creating a plan.

Semi Automatic (Manual) Method

If the user has selected “Semi Automatic Method” while purchasing the plan, then the user has to pay manually from your system whenever it is the end of the Billing Cycle. User has to come to your system and repurchase same plan until all recurrence of that plan complete. If somehow for any reason, user will not repurchase before next recurrence date, then “Failed Payment Action” will occur as set at the Configure Plan + Sign Page. ARMember also provides email notification named “Semi Automatic Subscription Payment Reminder” for sending reminder to all users before their next recurrence date is reached.
