Automatic payment methods

The plugin supports a couple of automatic payment methods, meaning that the customer gets charged automatically when each recurring payment is due.

Supported gateways:

The PayPal Standard settings are explained below, if you wish to see the settings of the other payment gateways, simply click on the one you are interested in.

PayPal Standard

PayPal standard supports automatic recurring payments, so users don’t have to remember to pay the recurring fee. If the owed amount is not available in the users’ PayPal account, the subscription will be cancelled or will switch to “Overdue” or “Suspended” status (depending on the settings).
To let the plugin work correctly, it is necessary that your PayPal account (compulsory for any type of business) is set to receive multi-currency payments. If you haven’t set this option in your PayPal account yet, follow the guidelines described below:

  • Go to www.paypal.com/ and access to your business account;
  • Click on My Account and then on Profile;
  • Open section My Selling Tools;
  • In Getting paid and managing my risk , click on update next to the entry Block Payments

PayPal account settings

  • Set the option ‘allow payments sent to me in a currency I do not hold’ to ‘yes, accept and convert theme to U.S. Dollars

Allow multi-currency payments

Note: You can associate more than one subscription to the same user, however, users need to place separate orders for each subscription. The system used to integrate PayPal recurring payments doesn’t allow multiple subscriptions within the same order.
