Does anyone have any experience with subscriptions and PayPal?
I’m currently weighing up the options of what payment system to use for
an upcoming project which is subscription based and am not sure if
PayPal is capable of doing what I want and if I need to setup a merchant
Basically it’s the same kind of payment structure as BaseCamp. 3 or 4
accounts which are subscription based.
The only problems I can see so far is that:
- is there the ability to charge a different amount each month?
IE if I run a promotion, or affiliate service then the user may not have
to pay as much, or at all, in a certain month.
- users have to go through the PayPal site to setup the subscription
Ideally everything should be handled on the site and post to PayPal in
the background. IE it should be seamless, but I don’t think this is
possible with PayPal
Any advice anyone has would be great.
Thanks in advance.
