An easy way to pay companies and friends/family since PayPal does not have an option when sending money to make it a subscription:
"business" = The e-mail or PayPal ID of the person/organization to pay to.
a3 The recurring amount "eg. 115" will be 115 USD
p3 The time period (eg. 2)
t3 Unit of time period m=monthly,w=weekly,y=yearly
item_name = "the note/product service reason you are paying ha........
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.

I waited for 4-days, after which they sent an e-mail saying my service was being disabled for SPAM ...(when SolusVM shows 0kb of traffic). Th........
Virpus is advertised on LEB (lowendbox.com). My initial payment was refunded after days of not receiving the VPS, but two subscrption payments went through and Ionly received notification after the second one. They ignored the requests in the ticket and by e-mail for a refund and even escalated the PayPal dispute that "we're assuming this is for a service that was provided" (when they obviously know otherwise by........
These are the only two I've encountered but here is the low-end and note my story is not at all unique.
