Paypal recurring subscriptions


I was about to upload a magazine subscription in a Marketpress store when I realised that I was unable to do this with recurring paypal payments.

I wonder if you could suggest which plugin or combinations of plugins I should use for this purpose.

Thank you.

    Hi Joe

    ??? Nothing to do with themes. lol.

    I am selling printed magazine subscriptions and want to offer an online sign up with recurring payments.

    At the moment I copy and paste Paypal html into a post but wondered if I could do it some other way.

    I tried Marketpress but as mentioned, it does not allow for products with recurring payments.

    I have considered a dedicated subdomain with perhaps, memberships or pro sites but with no experience of these I wondered if you could offer some pointers.

    Thanks again

    Greetings Stef,

    Thank you for that … lol

    Obviously I had a confusion problem there of what we were trying to accomplish.

    What?!?!? I did not win the Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes again?!?! … lol

    Though I believe there is a solution for you and possibilities in the Membership plugin, I cannot see any possibilities using Pro Sites for this specific purpose at all.

    I must also admit that Membership may not be the ideal solution either but if Market Press created subscriptions it would be ideal – and still might be.

    I shall clarify, you could create the button on PayPal and in Market Press use the external link to link to the PayPal button – using the link PayPal offers for emails in Market Press.

    Please advise as to what you think of this idea.

    Cheers, Joe
