Hi @ProfColeman,


Thank you for contacting PayPal community.


Our sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused.


You need to have a PayPal Business account and the Enhanced Recurring Payments package to create Automatic Billing or Installment Plan buttons.


Unfortunately, we don't have account level access to enable account settings.


I request to please check with PayPal Customer Service via this link (then choose at the bottom one of the contact methods - email or phone). They will be able to assist and enable the feature accordingly.
