Data Vault and recurring payments

The First Data Payment Gateway allows you to securely store and manage sensitive card data and set up recurring payments

Storage of sensitive card data

You can store or update card data when performing a transaction, from an approved transaction or store payment information without performing a transaction. Nominate your own token number and the First Data Payment Gateway will do all the work of matching your token number with the card data we’ve stored. You can also manage stored card data by displaying the records (with truncated card numbers).

Benefits - storage of sensitive card data

  • Potentially reduce or simplify PCI DSS compliance requirements as you no longer store sensitive data on your own systems
  • The First Data Payment Gateway is PCI DSS level 1 compliant, which means you and your customers can be assured that their information is secure
  • Improve your customers’ experience as you will be able to offer ‘1-click’ payment to speed up their payment process
  • Set up automatically recurring payments using payment details you have stored through Data Vault

Recurring payments

  • You can easily set up recurring payments through the First Data Payment Gateway with flexible frequency and timing options, for example: daily payments, made every two weeks
  • The First Data Payment Gateway will automatically attempt an authorisation on the dates set out in each schedule
  • Once set up, you can easily manage recurring payments by viewing, modifying, or cancelling the schedules and to keep track of your recurring payments, the Payment Gateway will automatically send email receipts to your customers and you will receive email notifications of payment

Benefits - recurring payments

  • Improve your customer experience by offering them the choice of paying through credit card, rather than direct debits from bank accounts
  • Improve your cash flow by having regular, predictable payments set up in advance
  • You can set and forget recurring payment schedules so you no longer need to contact your customer each time a payment is due
