Account Updater

A service that enables merchants to automatically update stored card details of their shoppers. Keeping this data up-to-date may be critical for accepting recurring payments.

Account Updater works by providing information to the acquirer about lost and stolen cards, non-activated cards, and closed card accounts. Visa and Mastercard provide their separate Account Updater solutions, while Adyen's Account Updater connects its customers to both Visa and Mastercard Account Updaters, without the need to formally enroll with the schemes and demonstrate compliance – which is handled by Adyen.
