With Braintree's recurring billing, you can charge your customers automatically in monthly increments. In order to set this up, you'll need to create a plan in the Control Panel and store your customers in the Vault. From there, you can associate each customer's preferred payment method with a plan to create a subscription.

Here are the three elements you’ll need to bill customers on a recurring basis:

Plans

  • Define the length of the billing cycle, billing date, and default cost
  • Define the number of billing cycles before expiration
  • Can be created for different services

Customers

  • Include payment method
  • Can include personal details (e.g. address, email)
  • Can be linked to multiple subscriptions

Subscriptions

  • Are funded by a specific payment method
  • Can be flexible and have different elements from the original plan
