Subscription with Down Payment and Options

  1. I'm working on this form:
    [link removed]

    The Packages at the top are a one time payment, the Hosting is recurring, and the options are recurring. If I select recurring when setting up PayPal integration, it lets me select one field and only charges for that. So, there are two issues:

    1) Is it possible to charge the single payment and start recurring payments with one form?

    2) I've set up the options as an Option field attached to the hosting fees, but they don't show up when I go to checkout. That is, it only charges $49 whether or not there are options checked. Why?

  2. PayPal Standard doesn't support a single payment and recurring payment which is why it's not an option in the PayPal Add-On. Recurring payments in PayPal Standard only support the recurring payment.

    Can you try changing your Option field names so that they don't have ( and ) in them? that might be the issue, i'm not 100% sure. For example:

    Email Newsletter ($35/mo.)

    Change to simply:

    Email Newsletter

    This is to check to see if PayPal has a problem with those characters being passed to it.
