    Hi - my client wants to setup a Auto Renewal feature for a new product they will be offering next year.

    I see that there is a 'SaveCreditCardNumberInDatabase' option on http://www.sitefinity.com/documentation/documentationarticles/advanced-settings

    Is there an option or setting somewhere that would allow you to save the credit card for 1 year, then send the user an automatic message saying
    their membership will be renewed in 30 days with the credit card on file?

    If the credit card is saved on file for the end user - do they have any control over updating it?

    Thank you.

    Hi Christine,

    The answer have been provided to you in the opened support ticket. For convenience I am sharing it here also:
    --------------
    The option SaveCreditCardNumberInDatabase actually is linked with the order, in other words based on this option is decided whether to store the credit card number in the OrderPayment or not.

    Each OrderPayment has LastModified date, which is stores the information when the order is paid using this credit card, so based on this you can create a scheduled task for 1 year (as described here) and create also a second task, which if not removed to delete the credit cards in 30days from the OrderPayment.

    In case you wish to store the credit card in a file on your system, then you can use the approach above, but you have to create an exporter to do this job. The rest could be achieved using the scheduled task approach.

    Is it possible for Sitefinity to pull a stored/saved credit card from a gateway processor - like Paypal - and use that credit card information for a product renewal? We don't want to save the credit card info within Sitefinity's database because of PCI issues.

    Is there an option in the shopping cart– where the shopping cart can ‘talk’ to the merchant gateway and process a renewal on the site – based on credit card information that is stored in the merchant gateway.

    and would the user profile be able to update that credit card information if if had expired?

    Hello Christine,

    This is up to the gateway processor to deliver such information and Sitefinity does not provide it out of the box.

    On a side note, I doubt if it is possible to receive credit card information in "pure form", by simply requesting it from e.g PayPal.
