The Recurring Payment Schedule object represents multiple payment collection runs for a specific source, payment process and payment method. Individual Payment schedules define the scope of each payment run and selects or generates installments accordingly.
The definition of a recurring payment schedule consists of a set of "information" fields and "scheduling" fields. Here we only provide the fields that are unique to the Recurring Payment Schedule object. For other fields, please refer to the Payment Schedule object definition.
The fields on the recurring payment schedule object are dynamic. Only the fields relevant for the selected frequency (daily, weekly or monthly) are displayed.
