Connectors – Use Cases

When you connect to your payment processor using any of our Connectors, Metricsco will receive notifications for recurring payments that got declined and then retry those payments on your behalf.

Using a Connector is the easiest way to get started and increase your retention.

We encourage you to review the following use-cases to make sure your business is prepared to support this life cycle (and all the additional revenue the comes with it…):

Get Subscription Updates from Metricsco (Activated/Terminated)

Metricsco will run your declined recurring transactions through our Decline Recycling Strategies and will calculate the best way to retry these payments.
While we are calculating and retrying your declined payments – the Subscription status is: In-Retry
Once we are able to successfully capture a declined payment, the Subscription status will change to: Activated
When a declined transaction is processed through a Decline Recycling Strategy that determines there should be no additional retries – the Subscription status will change to: Terminated

Update Subscriptions Status at Metricsco

You probably allow customers to update their subscription status through your website or call center, and we want to make sure that we stop retrying a subscription after a status change.
For example, a customer may provide you a new credit card after their card got declined and you may have already collected the due payment manually.
In another case, a customer may choose to cancel the subscription after the card got declined by contacting your customer support.
