Configuring the X-Payments Subscriptions Addon
page last edited on 10 January 2017
After the addon has been installed and enabled, it needs to be configured.
To configure the addon:
In the My addons section of your X-Cart store Admin area, find the addon “X-Payments subscriptions” and click on its name to access the addon detailed information.
On the addon information page, click on the Settings link.
The “X-Payments subscriptions” addon settings page opens:
- Adjust the addon settings:
- Number of rebill attempts for an unsuccessful charge: Normally, the addon will charge a subscription customer according to the schedule defined for their specific subscription. However, sometimes the processing of such payments may fail. In this case, the addon will attempt to charge the customer’s card again in a few days (The number of days is defined by the setting “How often to attempt rebills for an unsuccessful charge (in days)” below). The setting “Number of rebill attempts for an unsuccessful charge” allows you to set the maximum number of times that your store must try to charge the customer’s card after the initial attempt to process the subscription payment was unsuccessful. If this number is exceeded, the addon will stop the subscription and send an email notification both to the customer and the store’s orders department.
- How often to attempt rebills for an unsuccessful charge (in days): Specify how often your store must attempt to charge the customer’s card again if the initial attempt to process the subscription payment was unsuccessful. For example, if you set this value to “3”, your store will attempt to charge the customer’s card once every three days - until the payment can be processed successfully.
- Notify the customer of the upcoming payment X days in advance: The addon can notify subscription customers that they will soon be charged for their subscription a few days before the subscription payment is actually billed to their account. The setting “Notify the customer of the upcoming payment X days in advance” allows you to specify how many days in advance the store must send a notification of the upcoming subscription payment to customers with active subscriptions.
- Click Submit to save the changes.
