Customer-Initiated Recurring Payment with Enrollable Network Tokens

A recurring payment is a credentials-on-file (COF) transaction in a series of payments that you bill to a customer at a fixed amount, at regular intervals that do not exceed one year between transactions. The series of recurring payments is the result of an agreement between you and the customer for the purchase of goods or services that are provided at regular intervals.
Mastercard uses standing order and subscription payments instead of recurring payments. See Mastercard Standing Order Payments and Mastercard Subscription Payments.

Using Enrollable Network Tokens

Token Management Service
can enroll certain
network tokens
, known as device tokens, into an instrument identifier token for future payments.
Device tokens
store and encrypt card-on-file information which enables customers to make quick and easy purchases using their mobile device. When authorizing a credentialed payment with a device token, you must create and store the device token in a
instrument identifier token. To do this, include the device token information in the
fields and set the token creation fields to create an instrument identifier token.
Follow-on merchant-initiated transactions are performed using the created instrument identifier as the payment information. For more information about how to request a merchant-initiated transaction, see Merchant-Initiated Recurring Payments with TMS.
Device tokens are also known as
digital payments
digital wallets
, and
tokenized cards
