Handling updates

Adyen submits the cards daily, for which an update has been requested, to the card schemes. Responses with the updated information are received within 3-4 calendar days.

Adyen maintains a central list with card data where the card lifecycle is registered. This list serves as a reference for the card data that is stored for recurring payments for merchants. Adyen performs a specific action, depending on the response received from the card schemes. The following scenarios can occur:

  • No updates on a card.
  • Expiry date was updated for a card.
  • A new card number was issued for a card.
  • Card details are disabled.

Adyen recommends using old card details until the old card is declined.
