In the store how do I set up for recurring payments

I cannot see anywhere that says make this a recurring payment in the store.  Usually with paypal its a subscription button and its all automated without the person having to do anything more. However ( I might be wrong) it seems that they will need to login to the store each month to see renewals that are due and to click to pay.

Any ideas please?

sorry there is already another thread ongoing

so it seems there isnt any way to have recurring payments     not such good news for me at all... so maybe as ive mentioned somewhere else I might be best just adding a paypla button for recurring payments and then moving members into groups manually.  

has anyone else added a paypal button instead of using commerce? In intersting to know if you have.

UHHO   as ive added into the other thread also... even though Im using paypal which will collect all the necessary information the shopping cart asks for billing information so that means we have to be registered with data protection act really billing info required.png

 

is there no way round this as some people might not want to give thier adress ...  Im not sure why we need to collect that as we are not sending a bill to their house are we?

Bill address is required and cannot be removed.

so we have to register with data protection act because we are collecting information like this.  The whole reason for using paypal is becasue they collect info and not us

Register with who and where, not heard of that before?

well apparently if you hold any form of personal information then you should be registered in one way or another   https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/business/

Im not 100% certain if it all but I shall be researching if I need to. 

I think though a lot of people might not like to give out their personal home adress.

The explanation and instructions on how commerce works is kind of disappointing.  I have a recurring subscription program going and right now as their 30 day term is ending and getting ready to renew, people are getting an "invoice" to pay again versus their cards being autocharged.  Not cool. but I guess it's the life of a small business owner.

I set up two payment options one with credit card and one with Paypal.  If the makers of this software are saying that the only way to take a recurring automatic billing subscription is through Papal I wish they would just explicitly spell that out.
