PayPal subscriptions automatically cancelling after creation of profile

<p>There is a weird quirk with how this works, but there is a variable called &quot;src&quot; that defaults to 0 or disabled if not specified as 1.</p> <p>The default 0 means not to recur billing on a subscription.&nbsp; 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.</p> <p><strong>Here's a proper subscription code example that does recur and does not cancel:</strong></p> <p><strong>Note the following</strong></p> <p>a3= the recurring value</p> <p>p3= the period it recurs on</p> <p>t3 = the period timeframe (eg M for month or Y&nbsp;for year etc..)</p> <pre id="line1"><code><span>&lt;<span class="start-tag">form</span> <span class="attribute-name">name</span>=&quot;<a class="attribute-value">_xclick</a>&quot; <span class="attribute-name">action</span>=&quot;<a href="view-source:https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" class="attribute-value">https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr</a>&quot; <span class="attribute-name">method</span>=&quot;<a class="attribute-value">post</a>&quot;&gt;</span><span> </span><span>&lt;<span class="start-tag">input</span> <span class="attribute-name">type</span>=&quot;<a class="attribute-value">hidden</a>&quot; <span class="attribute-name">name</span>=&quot;<a class="attribute-value">cmd</a>&quot; <span class="attribute-name">value</span>=&quot;<a class="attribute-value">_xclick-subscriptions</a>&quot;&gt;</span><span> </span><span>&lt;<span class="start-tag">input</span> <span class="attribute-name">type</span>=&quot;<a class="attribute-value">hidden</a>&quot; <span class="attribute-name">name</span>=&quot;<a class="attribute-value">business</a>&quot; <span class="attribute-name">value</span>=&quot;your-business-seller-id&quot;&gt;</span><span> </span><span>&lt;<span class="start-tag">input</span> <span class="attribute-name">type</span>=&quot;<a class="attribute-value">hidden</a>&quot; <span class="attribute-name">name</span>=&quot;<a class="attribute-value">a3</a>&quot; <span class="attribute-name">value</span>=&quot;<a class="attribute-value">19.99</a>&quot;&gt;</span><span> </span><span>&lt;<span class="start-tag">input</span> <span class="attribute-name">type</span>=&quot;<a class="attribute-value">hidden</a>&quot; <span class="attribute-name">name</span>=&quot;<a class="attribute-value">p3</a>&quot; <span class="attribute-name">value</span>=&quot;<a class="attribute-value">3</a>&quot;&gt;</span><span> </span><span>&lt;<span class="start-tag">input</span> <span class="attribute-name">type</span>=&quot;<a class="attribute-value">hidden</a>&quot; <span class="attribute-name">name</span>=&quot;<a class="attribute-value">t3</a>&quot; <span class="attribute-name">value</span>=&quot;<a class="attribute-value">M</a>&quot;&gt;</span><span> </span><span>&lt;<span class="start-tag">input</span> <span class="attribute-name">type</span>=&quot;<a class="attribute-value">hidden</a>&quot; <span class="attribute-name">name</span>=&quot;<a class="attribute-value">currency_code</a>&quot; <span class="attribute-name">value</span>=&quot;<a class="attribute-value">USD</a>&quot;&gt;</span><span> </span><span>&lt;<span class="start-tag">input</span> <span class="attribute-name">type</span>=&quot;<a class="attribute-value">hidden</a>&quot; <span class="attribute-name">name</span>=&quot;<a class="attribute-value">item_name</a>&quot; <span class="attribute-name">value</span>=&quot;Item Name&quot;&gt;</span><span> </span><span>&lt;<span class="start-tag">input</span> <span class="attribute-name">type</span>=&quot;<a class="attribute-value">hidden</a>&quot; <span class="attribute-name">name</span>=&quot;<a class="attribute-value">amount</a>&quot; <span class="attribute-name">value</span>=&quot;<a class="attribute-value">19.99</a>&quot;&gt;</span><span> </span><span>&lt;<span class="start-tag">input</span> <span class="attribute-name">type</span>=&quot;<a class="attribute-value">hidden</a>&quot; <span class="attribute-name">name</span>=&quot;<a class="attribute-value">src</a>&quot; <span class="attribute-name">value</span>=&quot;<a class="attribute-value">1</a>&quot;&gt;</span><span> </span><span>&lt;<span class="start-tag">input</span> <span class="attribute-name">type</span>=&quot;<a class="attribute-value">image</a>&quot; <span class="attribute-name">src</span>=&quot;<a href="view-source:http://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_buynow_LG.gif" class="attribute-value">http://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_buynow_LG.gif</a>&quot; <span class="attribute-name">border</span>=&quot;<a class="attribute-value">0</a>&quot; <span class="attribute-name">name</span>=&quot;<a class="attribute-value">submit</a>&quot; <span class="attribute-name">alt</span>=&quot;<a class="attribute-value">Make payments with PayPal - it's fast, free and secure!</a>&quot;&gt;</span><span> </span><span><!--<span class="end-tag"-->form</span>&gt;</code></pre>
