Subscriptions with paypal...how?

Hi, i’ve to do a little site which need the paypal’s subscription
feature. How can implement it with rails? is there any plugin to do
this? I need that every month the payment has been taken, tell the
system that has been successfully done and then do something else
depending on the payment.
I’ve seen active merchant which permit paypal payments, but what about
subscriptions?
Any idea?
thanks

You can implement paypals subscriptions with activemerchant by using
Instant Payment Notification, which is part of paypal.

Once a user has subscribed to your subscriptions your rails
application will net a notification of the subscription, and then at
each billing period another notice and so forth. You application will
implement a controller that will handle the notices doing the
necessary book work for the notification. Do a search for
“activemerchant IPN” and you find examples how to do this.

don’t flat-out advocate one over the other; it depends on your app’s
specific needs. Still, it’s worth a look.

I’ll take a look to it :slight_smile:
An option more would be nice for the customer, if it has some kind of
subscriptions :slight_smile:
thanks
