Account Updater Introduction


Account Updater automatically updates your account holders' card information. Card information changes for many reasons, including card expirations, lost or stolen cards, upgrades, or issuing banks converting card brands.

Aria supports Account Updater services offered by Chase Paymentech and Vantiv (Litle).

Account Updater is available in North America for Visa and MasterCard transactions.

Using Account Updater provides the following advantages:

  • Prevents interruption of customer service due to non-payment;
  • Reduces customer cancelation by maintaining the payment relationship;
  • Minimizes costs associated with collections and with updating accounts manually;
  • Keeps the update process transparent to customers.

Account Updater works even when the data is securely encrypted, ensuring the protection of sensitive account data and reducing the frequency of declined transactions.
