One Click, Two Clicks, and Recurring Transaction
Card payment is easy and secure.
However for customer of certain business model can be quite tedious having to re-input their Credit Card each time they want to make transaction (especially those with high frequency of transaction). Midtrans can improve payment experience by using following features:
One Click allows merchant to securely save customer’s credit card details (including CVV) in a form of one-click-token in the initial transaction. Once the customer wants to do the next payment, merchant can easily retrieve the previously-saved credit card details using the token. Since card details are already stored, customer needs to do one simple step:
Trigger the payment (e.g click “Pay Now”)

Two Clicks allows you to securely save customer’s credit card details (excluding CVV) in a form of two-click-token for the initial transaction. Once the customer wants to do the next payment, merchant can easily retrieve the previously-saved credit card details using the token. Since card details are already stored, customer needs to do two simple steps:
1. Enter their CVV,
2. Trigger the payment.

Recurring allows you to securely save customer’s credit card details (including CVV) in a form of recurring-token. After initial payment, you can charge payment whenever your business want to charge the customer, such as for periodical subscription payment. The payment is triggered on merchant’s side, without any customer interaction.
Under the hood, recurring and one click is exactly same feature. The difference is what trigger the charge (logic in your server or customer action).
