Account Updater

Account Updater is a key customer retention tool designed to support seamless updates of credit/debit card account information. 

What is Account Updater Service

Account Updater is a generic term for programs such as Visa's Account Updater or MasterCard Automatic Billing Updater that are offered by the credit card networks to automatically update subscription customer card data when cardholder information changes or goes out of date.

How Does an Account Updater Service Work

This service records changes to credit card account numbers and expiration dates due to mergers, portfolio flips (e.g., Visa to MasterCard), re-issued cards (from loss or security breach) account closures, and product upgrades.

Companies that participate in updater programs have several ways to check the information in their subscriber database: automated nightly updates that check any card you have processed in the past six months, requests for information on specific cards that have been declined and requests for information on a set of cards due for their next billing installment.

Basic Retry Logic

Basic Retry Logic involves the first two (2) renewal authorizations 2Checkout makes to recover expired subscriptions for which the renewal process failed.

2Recover Add-on 

The 2Recover add-on is available on-demand as part of the 2Recover add-on. Contact 2Checkout directly for more information. 2Recover add-on includes the basic revenue recovery tools plus: 

  • 2Checkout Updater
  • Advanced Retry Logic
  • Hard Declines Notifications
  • Advanced Authorization Report (new acquisition, auto-renewal, manual renewal) 

2Checkout Updater
