Reoccurring PayPal Confusion

  1. This might be a silly question, but, I was curious on the following topic.

    When you setup PayPal reoccurring payments it asks you how many times you want the payment to reoccur. Is this in addition to the first payment amount, or is this after?

    So let's say I want 3 Payments of $100 dollars.

    I have the "Price" of the item at $100 dollars, which they pay at check out, and then what would I have it set on the "Reoccurring Payments" section? 2 or 3?

    Does it work like:

    Initial Payment + 2 More = 3 Total


    3 = 3 Total (It automatically counts the initial payment as 1 Occurrence).
