  • Step two: The merchant or, so called, user of the payment gateway logs into his panel of control and introduces all the information provided by the client: card number, expiry date, CVC code, frequency with which the recurring payment will be made (daily, weekly, monthly or annual), due amount and the date of the last recurring payment.
