GoPayment and Recurring Charges

Is there any way (even a work around) to do a recurring payment on the mobile credit card app GoPayment?


I don't see any reference online to the ability to do this.  Am I missing something? Or, is it possible to convert a charge to recurring in the desktop version of QuickBooks once the transaction synchronizes?


Many Thanks,


QuickBooks Team

Glad you dropped by the Community space, rikwall.


Allow me to address your concern about recurring payment in QuickBooks Desktop.


Before you set up a recurring payment, you must get a signed authorization form from your customer. On the Create recurring payment page, click the Authorization Form link to download a PDF file that contains the terms of the recurring payment. Send or give the form to your customer to complete.


Step 1: To create a recurring payment:

  • If you will connect recurring payments to QuickBooks Desktop:
  1. Open QuickBooks, from the Customers menu, select Credit Card Processing Activities.
  2. Select Set Up Recurring Payments.
  • If you will use standalone Recurring payments:
  1. Sign in to Merchant Service Center .

Step 2: Create the recurring charge:

  1. From the menu, select Processing Tools.
  2. Select Create a Recurring Charge or if you are on the Manage Recurring payments screen, select Create.

Thanks Rose Marjorie.


It's kind of odd that GoPayment requires a written authorization for recurring. Other mobile credit card processing companies do not (Click & Pledge, Square, Swipe, etc.) That's extremely cumbersome if you are in the field selling raffle tickets or some such thing. Pretty much a deal killer for us since 20% or more of the annual income for our nonprofit comes from field raffle sales.
