This report only applies to you if you offer a subscription service or if you're MCC = 6012 (a domestic Financial Services provider). If so, you will be more than familiar with collecting payments on a monthly/bi-monthly cycle.
When customers sign up for your subscription service and agree to pay or ‘re-pay’ a certain amount on a recurring basis, they are giving you their Continuous Payment Authority (CPA) – it’s like a recurring debit on your bank account.
What if they decide to revoke that permission?
We are notified before you try to collect funds if the CPA has been recalled/cancelled. All the cancellations that you have received are collected and displayed here.
The information is conveniently presented as a list of all the cancellations showing each transaction’s specific details such as the cardholder name and the transaction IDs - allowing you to identify the cancelling customers and update your future processing.
