Subscription ID and PayPal


Recommended Posts

On the Products & Services, there is a "Subscription ID" location which I understand is where PayPal will return a "Subscription ID" if the customer agrees to having subscriptions paid automatically.  However, can this be used with the PayPal Payments Standard or must I upgrade to PayPal Payments Pro and/or subscribe to PayPal's Enhanced Recurring Payments service?

If a customer logs into their billing account, clicks on an invoice and clicks on the payment button, when they get to PayPal, will PayPal ask them if they want to setup a subscription for this service that they are paying for? If so, then I 'assume' a "Subscription ID" is returned and the product record is updated to store this ID.  Then the next month when the next invoice is generated, the WHMCS system will automatically contact PayPal to have the 'invoice' paid by the customer payment source?

I appreciate any feedback anyone can give.
