Subscriptions with paypal...how?

You can implement paypals subscriptions with activemerchant by using
Instant Payment Notification, which is part of paypal.

Once a user has subscribed to your subscriptions your rails
application will net a notification of the subscription, and then at
each billing period another notice and so forth. You application will
implement a controller that will handle the notices doing the
necessary book work for the notification. Do a search for
"activemerchant IPN" and you find examples how to do this.

Somewhat OT: You should also consider Amazon Flexible Payments. I
don't flat-out advocate one over the other; it depends on your app's
specific needs. Still, it's worth a look.

I'll take a look to it :slight_smile:
An option more would be nice for the customer, if it has some kind of
subscriptions :slight_smile:
thanks
