Updater Service

Real Time Account Updater Service

also known as the Real Time Updater Service, Visa Account Updater (VAU) or MasterCard Automatic Billing (ABU) Updater

The Account Updater allows the merchant to receive updated cardholder data from participating Acquirers, Merchants and Card Issuers.  As expiring cards are renewed or lost cards replaced, the updated data allows for a seamless recurring or automated card billing process to take place, reducing the risk of service cancellation.

Merchants receive refreshed cardholder data wihout making outbound calls - producing an uninterrupted customer payment experience; increasing authorisation approval rates; and improving revenue retention.
