They contain all the tokens associated with an expiring payment methods, i.e whose expiry date is close.

A payment method is considered close to expiration if the difference between the payment method end of validity and the current date is less than or equal to X months.

X represents a digit that can be configured by the merchant in the menu Settings > Company > [Subscription and alias parameters] tab of the Merchant Back Office.

The default value is 2 months.

The approaching payment method expiry dates will be identified with a color code in the Merchant Back Office (Management > Recurring payments):
  • Orange if the expiry is approaching,
  • Red if the delay has passed.
