AUTH Subscription

 

Padlock
This legacy solution employs 3-D Secure version 1, rather than version 2

 

If you are already processing e-commerce payments using the latest version of our JavaScript Library, your existing solution already utilises 3-D Secure version 2, and can be updated to also submit Subscription requests with minimal changes to the mark-up. Click here to learn more.

Warning
The following content assumes you have obtained the necessary PCI certification to process and submit sensitive cardholder data in the request to our Webservices API.

If you are unsure, please contact our Support team for assistance.

 

Process overview

This subscription process consists of three parts:

1
Submit combined AUTH SUBSCRIPTION request

This immediately processes the first payment and then schedules future payments in our subscription engine.

2
Subscription is active

All subsequent payments are processed automatically by our subscription engine.

3
Finishing the subscription

In the initial request, you can define a finite number of payments (using the subscriptionfinalnumber field), after which our subscription engine will discontinue automatic payments. Alternatively you can allow payments to continue indefinitely and manually disable the subscription when needed.

 


 

1. Submit combined AUTH SUBSCRIPTION request

In order to process the first payment immediately, and request that a series of subscription payments be scheduled in our subscription engine, your system will need to submit a request following the specifications outlined below.

 

Request example

When the AUTH SUBSCRIPTION request is submitted, our system will interpret this as two different requests:

 


AUTH SUBSCRIPTION request for cards enrolled in 3-D Secure

3-D Secure
3-D Secure is a protocol designed to reduce fraud and chargebacks during e-commerce transactions. It allows Mastercard and Visa card issuers to provide an extra level of protection, by authenticating the customer’s identity at the point of sale, sometimes by prompting for a previously-agreed PIN and/or password.

 

When processing Subscriptions using 3-D Secure, you will first need to process a THREEDQUERY request and handle the response. Click here for further information

 

If the customer’s card is enrolled in 3-D Secure, submit a combined AUTH SUBSCRIPTION request, including the md and pares field returned from the ACS:

AUTH SUBSCRIPTION request for cards NOT enrolled in 3-D Secure

3-D Secure
3-D Secure is a protocol designed to reduce fraud and chargebacks during e-commerce transactions.

Response example

In the response, in addition to following our best practices, you will need to check the fields returned contain the correct information in regards to subscription timing and amount, and in particular, that the transactionactive field contains the value you are expecting. The response is divided into two parts:

Info
If the AUTH response indicates the request was successful, funds for the first payment have been reserved on the customer’s account.

Field specification

Key

Field name Type Length Request Response Description
md Alphanumeric including symbols 65536 The unique 3-D Secure reference for this transaction. Supplied if enrolled is “Y”
pares Alphanumeric including symbols 1024 Must be the value returned in the pares field of the HTTPS POST from the card issuer’s ACS, otherwise this may forfeit the liability shift.
parenttransactionreference Alphanumeric including hyphens 25 Unique reference of the parent THREEDQUERY request.
expirydate Date MM/YYYY 7 The expiry date printed on the card.
pan Numeric 12-19 This is the long number printed on the front of the customer’s card.We return a masked version of this PAN in the response, in the field maskedpan. e.g. “411111######1111”
securitycode Numeric 3-4 This is the three digit security code printed on the back of the card.(For AMEX cards, this is a 4 digit code found on the front of the card)

This field is not strictly required field by Secure Trading, but it is highly recommended for the processing of security code checks.

Additionally, some banks may decline the payment if the security code is not present.

requesttypedescriptions Alpha 20  * You must submit “AUTH” and “SUBSCRIPTION”, as shown in the request example.

*In the response, the field ‘requesttypedescription’ is returned in both parts of the response e.g. “requesttypedescription”:”AUTH” and “requesttypedescription”: “SUBSCRIPTION”, respectively.

sitereference Alphanumeric including
underscore
50 The site reference relates to your individual account which you received on setup. If you do not know your site reference, please contact our Support team.
accounttypedescription Alpha 20 The source of the transaction.

  • In the request, this value needs to submitted as “ECOM” or “MOTO“. The value submitted will be returned in the AUTH section of the response.
  • Additionally, in the SUBSCRIPTION section of the response, the accounttypedescription value will be returned as “RECUR“.
currencyiso3a  Alpha 3 The currency assigned to each payment in the subscription sequence.

Click here for a full list of available currencies.

baseamount Numeric 13 The amount to be paid at regular intervals, in base units, with no commas or decimal points, so £10 is submitted as 1000. This value must be greater than zero. (Max length may vary depending on your acquiring bank – Contact your bank for further info)
credentialsonfile Numeric 1 Submit value “1” to indicate the credentials submitted in the initial request are being stored for subsequent subscription payments.

Note: Visa and Mastercard have mandated that you must obtain cardholder consent before storing card details for future use. Click here for further information

If your system fails to submit this value in the request, our system will automatically attempt to flag the request with the correct credentialsonfile value.

If you are processing a new subscription using previously-stored credentials, you must still submit credentialsonfile = 1, to indicate the credentials will continue to be stored for payments in this specific subscription sequence.

subscriptiontype Alpha  11 For information on the use of subscription fields, please refer to the Subscription engine page.
subscriptionfinalnumber Numeric 5
subscriptionunit Alpha 5
subscriptionfrequency Numeric 11
subscriptionbegindate Date
YYYY-MM-DD
10
subscriptionnumber Numeric 5
  • The AUTH should always start with value “1”, unless resuming a previous subscription (e.g. if you are resuming a previously-cancelled subscription that had 3 payments, you can submit “4” here to carry it on).
  • This number is incremented in each subscription payment.
  • This feature allows you to effectively resume a previous subscription, maintaining the number of payments that were previously processed.
transactionactive Numeric 1 The subscription status.

“0” – Inactive: Suspends future payments until manually overridden. (Refer to information on updating subscriptions below)

“1” – Active: Schedules subscription payments immediately, bypassing fraud & duplicate checks (if enabled).

“2” – Pending (default): Schedules subscription payments after the AUTH has been settled (settlestatus “100”).

transactionreference Alphanumeric including
hyphens
25 This field is returned in both the AUTH and SUBSCRIPTION response, and is used to uniquely identify both.

It is especially important to take note of the transactionreference returned in the SUBSCRIPTION section of the response, as you will need this if you need to perform any queries or updates on the subscription at a later time.

 

Info
Changing the amount for subsequent subscription payments

You can schedule a subscription for a different amount to that of the initial payment (e.g. initial AUTH is for £5.99 and the SUBSCRIPTION is for £9.99 a month).

  • To do this, you will first need to submit a combined AUTH SUBSCRIPTION request as described above, including the baseamount for the initial payment.
  • Then, process a TRANSACTIONUPDATE request, including the transactionreference of the SUBSCRIPTION, and a new baseamount that contains the value the customer is to be billed during the subscription.

The first payment will be processed immediately after the initial request is submitted. All subsequent payments will be processed automatically by our subscription engine.

The first automated payment will be processed as follows:

 

 

Keeping track of your subscriptions

 

 

 

 

Updating the subscription

You can perform updates to active subscriptions in order to change customer’s details, or to cancel/modify the subscription payments. There are two ways to do this:

 

 

 


 

3. Finishing the subscription

Subscriptions can enter either one of these two states:

 

Number of payments exceeded

Once the subscriptionnumber exceeds the subscriptionfinalnumber, our subscription engine will stop processing subscription payments indefinitely.

If you do not need to process further payments from the customer, you do not need to take further action.

If you wish to resume/extend a subscription, you can update the subscriptionfinalnumber to a greater value. You can do this by using MyST, or by submitting a TRANSACTIONUPDATE request. With this update complete, payments will resume processing at their original intervals. If payments have been missed while the subscription payments were not being processed, our subscription engine will catch up with missed payments within 24 hours.

 

Subscription continues indefinitely

If the original request was submitted with subscriptionfinalnumber set to “0”, we will continue to process payments indefinitely until you manually deactivate the subscription.

If you wish to deactivate the subscription, you can do so by updating the transactionactive field to be “0”. You can do this by using MyST, or by submitting a TRANSACTIONUPDATE request (you can re-enable a subscription at a later time, if needed).
