Change payment cycle

I want to make paypal butons for my blog.

Under subscriptions the only ones availible are daily, monthly and yearly.

I want monthly,quarterly, semi annual and yearly.  Is there a way to change or add to the payment cycle?

Re: Change payment cycle

Hello gatekeeper777,


Welcome to the Forums.


One way you could set it up is to select for the billing cycle: 1 and monthly for once a month, 3 and monthly for once a quarter, 6 and monthly for every 6 months, and 1 and years for yearly. I hope this makes sense.

Re: Change payment cycle

I don't see the Billing Cycle in the Create PayPal Payment Button UI. All I have is "After how many cycles should billing stop" after "Have PayPal create user names and passwords for customers".


Any thoughts?


Also, in the sample HTML codes, we have this -


<input type="hidden" name="a3" value="69.95">
<input type="hidden" name="p3" value="1">
<input type="hidden" name="t3" value="M">



I assume p3 is the Billing Cycle? So if I change it to 6, I will have a Semi-Annual option?


I am using Website Payments Standard by the way.


Thanks. Smiley Happy
