Sellers with Subscription Models: PayPal Is Making Changes

PayPal is making a change to its subscription feature that allows sellers to offer recurring payments, subscriptions, automatic billing, and installment plans to their customers.

PayPal announced that starting February 1st, 2019, it will be making a change to the PayPal Payments Standard Subscriptions feature(s) Modify and usr_manage.

“This means your integration will no longer provide the ability to modify an existing subscription or have PayPal create a username and password when signing up for a subscription, these features will no longer work,” it explained.

You can find FAQs on its announcement page.

The company explained, “PayPal is always looking to evolve our customer experiences so that we’re providing the best products and solutions. To ensure that customers are receiving the newest capabilities, we continue to optimize our platform to provide the best experience to our Consumers and Merchants.”
