What if the initial payment declines?
It is not possible to schedule recurring payments in the subscription engine, if the initial AUTH was declined by the issuer.
If the AUTH section of the request was declined, you will not receive a response for the SUBSCRIPTION, as no subscription will have been scheduled.
In cases where the first payment is declined, we recommend displaying an error message to the customer and allowing them to try again with a different card.
