What is a Recurring Transaction?

re - cur - ring trans - ac - tion
noun
A charge applied to a cardholder in predetermined intervals for services or goods of an ongoing nature (memberships, subscriptions).
How Does a Recurring Transaction Work?

In a recurring transaction a cardholder will purchase a service or good. Instead of charging one price, the merchant will establish a set interval of time (usually a month) in which the consumer will be charged an agreed-upon sum. This payment will continue until the buyer either cancels the service or, if the charge applies to one lump amount (such as a car or house), that amount is paid off.
