Paypal recurring payments Alpha

Hey guys,

The last five years I have been a very big contender of recurring payments. They have always felt a bit aggressive and that's why I always preferred the option of putting credit in your account instead. That way no automated system will take money from you without you knowing it.

Having said that there are still a lot of you out there that just want to set something up so you can forget about it and recurring payments do allow you to do that.

So today I am releasing the first recurring payments code. If you are interested in testing it out you can go to your Finance-page to set it up. This is what the workflow looks like:

  1. You setup a subscription for a specific amount of EUR.
  2. Today and starting next month around this date you will be charged this specific amount of EUR from your Paypal account
  3. This amount will be used to pay any invoices that come up
  4. You can cancel a subscription at any time.

Because Paypal has such awesome testing tools (........) I wasn't able to fully simulate all use-cases so consider this an Alpha feature for now until more test data is gathered.

Please let me know if you come across anything buggy! :)
