PayPal subscriptions automatically cancelling after creation of profile

There is a weird quirk with how this works, but there is a variable called "src" that defaults to 0 or disabled if not specified as 1.

The default 0 means not to recur billing on a subscription.  It's too bad it's not more obvious anywhere nor is there an explanation or warning during payment or after to both the seller and buyer.

Here's a proper subscription code example that does recur and does not cancel:

Note the following

a3= the recurring value

p3= the period it recurs on

t3 = the period timeframe (eg M for month or Y for year etc..)

<form name="_xclick" action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post"> <input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_xclick-subscriptions"> <input type="hidden" name="business" value="your-business-seller-id"> <input type="hidden" name="a3" value="19.99"> <input type="hidden" name="p3" value="3"> <input type="hidden" name="t3" value="M"> <input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="USD"> <input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="Item Name"> <input type="hidden" name="amount" value="19.99"> <input type="hidden" name="src" value="1"> <input type="image" src="http://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_buynow_LG.gif" border="0" name="submit" alt="Make payments with PayPal - it's fast, free and secure!"> form>
