SubscriptionRequest will generate a new Subscription in the SubscriptionBridge system, which will then create a recurring payment profile with the payment gateway associated with the SubscriptionBridge store. As part of this process, SubscriptionBridge securely passes payment information (i.e. the credit card details) to the payment gateway.

  • Credit card information is never saved by SubscriptionBridge
  • Credit card information should not be saved by your application
