Maximum billing cycle length for recurring subscriptions

I am setting up a subscription website and the client wants to offer subscriptions that will be billed 1, 2 and 3 years. Does PayPal allow recurring payments for 24 and 36 month intervals?

 

thanks, kj

Note:

 

Billing cycle has two components:

  • The billing period specifies the unit to calculate the billing cycle (such as days or months, years).
  • The billing frequency specifies the number of billing periods that make up the billing cycle.

For example, if the billing period is Month and the billing frequency is 2, the billing cycle is 2 months. If the billing period is Week and the billing frequency is 6, PayPal schedules the payments every 6 weeks.

 

Therefore, set frequency number to 1, 2, or 3 and set the billing period to years.

 

(It lets you specify up to 30 for the PayPal subscription button made with the button tool.)

 

You can also set the number of billing cycles after which billing stops. Select "Never" or a number.


Kudos & Solved are greatly appreciated. 🙂
