The word recur means to “happen again, especially at regular intervals”.  Recurring billing would therefore be billing that happens repeatedly at regular intervals.  Utility companies, phone companies, banks all have recurring billing.

For shopping cart systems, recurring billing can only be established if the amount to be billed to the customer is the same amount each time.

Examples would be:

  • Subscriptions
  • Memberships
  • Web Hosting
  • Monthly Support Programs
  • and so much more

The interval of a recurring bill is generally monthly but could be weekly, bi-monthly or even annually.

If this is something that you need to enhance your client relationships and increase revenue then make sure that your shopping cart system and your payment gateway support recurring billing/payments because this is an advanced feature and may not be supported or may be something that you have to pay extra for.  When in doubt, please don’t hesitate to contact the folk at
