Detailed description of parameters

dueDate

If you choose Wirecard Bank as your acquirer, you can calculate the due date yourself. QENTA requires from you to submit recurring and final direct debit payments four (4) banking days before the due date.

Please refer to SEPA Direct Debit for further information and details on the due date calculation.

transactionIdentifier

Only within recurring transactions besides the values SINGLE and INITIAL there is another value possible:

RECUR

Subsequent transaction based on a previous transaction (source order) for which the transactionIdentifier value INITIAL was used.

Please note that NO recurring transactions may be carried out if the transactionIdentifier value SINGLE is used in the source order.

For recurring transactions based on SEPA Direct Debit, a given authorization by the consumer is used for regular direct debits initiated by the creditor, e.g payment for monthly rent. The initial mandateId signed by the consumer is used as a basis for all recurring transactions.

The transaction type "final" defines the last transaction of a series of transactions. After a final payment has been processed for a mandate, it is not possible to generate more transactions for that mandate. At the moment QENTA does not support final transactions. Please set your transaction to RECUR instead.

useIbanBic

For merchants who wish to carry out recurring transactions based on Sofort but may not derive any IBAN/BIC from the source order, because it was made too long ago in the past and therefore no IBAN/BIC data are retrievable, Wirecard Bank offers the possibility to convert the available account number and bank sorting code into IBAN and BIC, thus allowing a recurring transaction based on SEPA Direct Debit.

Therefore, if No is set by the merchant, conversion of account number and bank sorting code is carried out and a recurring payment based on SEPA Direct Debit is made. If Yes is set by the merchant, IBAN/BIC are taken from the Sofort source order and a recurring transaction based on SEPA Direct Debit is made.

Please contact our Sales teams for enabling this feature.

FAQ

It is not possible to extend an authorization, therefore I will use a recurring payment which returns a new orderId. Does the original authorization then expire immediately?

No, the original authorization does not change its state and it will still be authorized.

This means that in such situation there are then two authorizations for one transaction?

Yes, but we encourage you to cancel the original authorization as soon as possible. Additionally if the transaction(s) will exceed the limit, they will be declined by the issuing bank.

What is the time frame for creating a recurring payment based on an already existing order?

You are able to to a recurring payment on an existing order which is not older than 400 days.

Is it possible to use expired or reversed orders as source orders for recurring payments?

Yes, it is possible within a time frame of 400 days.
