Subscriptions vs card tokenisation
Subscriptions vs card tokenisation
Updated over a week ago

WigWag offers both a Subscriptions API and also card tokenisation. Both enable recurring payments for different use cases.

The Subscriptions API allows you to embed recurring payments into the product without having to handle the billing cycle yourself.

While card tokenisation requires you to run jobs yourself to debit the right card at the right time. This is for instances when you need to debit a card in an ad hoc way.

With the Subscriptions API, WigWag will attempt to charge the necessary scheduled card each day between 5 pm and 8 pm SAST. Any subscriptions created after this time will be charged the next day during the period.

Retried will be attempted between 7 am and 10 am SAST the next day.
