What are Scheme Updates?

 

Info
We strongly recommend that merchants processing high volume recurring transactions enable scheme updates.

 

We only support this functionality with supported acquiring banks.

 

This functionality must be enabled on your site reference(s) before it can be used.

Please contact our Support Team to discuss enabling scheme updates.

 

Scheme updates involve Trust Payments contacting the Visa Account Updater (VAU) and Mastercard’s Automatic Billing Updater (ABU) systems to check for updates, and to store any updated payment credentials on our secure servers. These updated payment credentials will automatically be used in future payments in this sequence.

If SCHEMEUPDATE is enabled on the site reference, this will be automatically processed in the days preceding an automated Subscription payment.

 

Info
It is possible for subscriptions to be “Stopped” following a Scheme update. This can occur if the customer contacts their acquiring bank to cancel the subscription. If this occurs, the SUBSCRIPTION active status is updated to “3” (“Stopped”), and no further payments will be processed.
