As always, test your forms before making them live.

If you use the recurring transaction features of the gateway, you may specify a URL to receive transaction postback information. This can be enabled via the "Account Settings" link in the Control Panel.

To use this feature, enter the URL to be used for postback information. Then select the check-box for recurring. Each time a recurring transaction is processed through our system, our server will post the transaction results to your URL. The fields listed below will be available to your script when the postback function is used. Please note that not all fields will be posted in every postback
