Authorize.Net to Offer Recurring Billing API

Authorize.Net will begin beta testing a new API for their recurring billing service. Currently users of this feature had to either manually configure recurring billing accounts or upload a file containing multiple accounts.

This API is slated to go live by the end of the month. We have been asked to be beta testers of this new feature. Expect a review and an article with code to follow.

    Any update on this, how do you sign up to for beta testing?

    The beta testing should start within the next 7 - 10 days.

    I don’t believe you can sign up to be a beta tester. We were chosen because we are certified Authorize.Net developers. Coincidentally we had just had a discussion with the developer team about their recurring billing API, actually their lack there of, so I am guessing it put us in the forefront of their minds.

    Hi Jim, that’s great news. I arrived to your site after you replied to my post at Sitepoint.

    I’m sure once Authorize.net API supports recurring billing many developers dealing with subscription based websites will be quite happy.

    I hope the ETA you mention is correct, I’ve asked Authorize.net many times about a recurring billing API and they always, quite politely, remind me just do it manually and to assure my customers their payments are secure with Authorize.net.

    I’m subscribing to your feed, keep us posted :)
