Zen Cart Recurring Billing Module

***Update 7/7/2010***

The ALPHA version of this module is set for official release within the coming days / week. Just a few loose ends to tie up. The current version is pre-integrated with the following payment gateway: Authorize.net. If there are any additional payment modules that are not on the list please let us know and we’ll look at adding them.

The initial payment modules were determined based on past feedback from interested parties and also based on the most popular processing systems in place (not to mention those that allow the processing of recurring billing transactions — not all do.)

Those on the list (see the form below in this post) will be notified via email as well as here when the package is available for sale. This is a commercial module and will come with support via forums.

***Update 2/24/2010***

Ok, so many requests for this and new abilities through a few gateways means that we’re back in development with this. We’re working hard to get a “plug and play” type module together for complete and seamless two-way recurring billing for zen cart. By two-way I mean all recurring orders show in zen cart admin each time they are billed.

Some of the mods out there currently enable recurring payments but the problem is that it is all “one way communication”. The cart sends the information to the payment processor but subsequent recurring transactions are never reported back to zen cart (so you have no good management system for them.)

Again, working hard to get a commercial mod out and hope to have an initial release ready for purchase soon. Will post a link to that here when ready.

If you want to get on the list to be notified when this is ready you can use the form below and I’ll send you an email when it is ready:

I have been working on a recurring billing module and follow-up system for Zen Cart. The initial tests are going well. Since there are so many users looking for this type of feature in Zen Cart, I wanted to dedicate a single category to it on this site as well.

Although the current module is basically “complete” (but is being tested extensively before any type of release to the general public) I welcome your comments and suggestions on what your ideal recurring billing module would have.

Tell me what payment gateways you are looking to integrate with and if they are not already included, I’ll work to get them in there.

The Zen Cart Recurring Billing category will be the place I will post updates to the progress of the module. I hope those interested will join in posting comments as well. Without your input, I don’t know what you are looking for on your “Wish List” and it if I don’t know what you are looking for, how can I add it! 🙂
