Create a Recurring Payment

This code steps you through the process of storing a payment method for a customer and using it to set up recurring payments. When this recurring payment information is stored, a $0 authorization is used for the initial transaction. As a result, the customer is not charged until the rebilling cycle begins.

For sample code that charges customers at the same point of establishing rebilling Go to: Run a credit card transaction with recurring payments or ACH processing with recurring payments

The following sample code makes method calls utilizing our ruby gem.
