Recurring Billing Service: How It Works


 

This page will help you to:

  • Learn how Recurring Billing works
  • Integrate Recurring Billing into your payment solution

How It Works

Quickly set up Recurring Billing by simply creating customer profiles with the PayPal Manager. Each customer profile includes your customer's name and billing information, the amount and frequency to charge, and the length of the agreement.

After creating your customer profiles, the amount you specified is charged to your customer’s account. An optional email is sent to your customer when their account is charged.

Take charge of your account using the PayPal Manager to:

  • Create and maintain your customer profiles.
  • Configure optional email notifications.
  • Request emailed transaction summaries.
