Paypal Subscription

  1. We are looking for a way to allow users to select whether they would like their paypal subscript to be automatically renewed yearly or just for one year. I know that it can be done by just passing the form to paypal for a redirect, but I would rather just let them make a check box and it happens on the backend? Any options?

  2. I think you can use the gform_paypal_query filter. http://www.gravityhelp.com/documentation/page/Gform_paypal_query

    There could be a check box in your form that says "yes, please renew my subscription annually". You would configure the paypal feed for the description to NOT renew automatically, but if they give you the authorization, change the query string being sent to PayPal from your default of "do not autorenew" to "autorenew". Does that help?

  3. Reading more about it, this reference will be useful for changing the query which is sent to PayPal.
