I am trying to get subscriptions to work for the new system so I can get more detailed reporting to appear on the sftp server. Knowing this functionality appears to no longer work in the new system (at least until the migration is complete I hope?), would I be better off going back to the old system via the links in the dashboard to schedule this subscription?
When I- type subscription is created from old S- type subscription buttons then IPN message will be of I- type and not S-. The existing S- subscriptions will continue to send S- type IPN message.
Your post says "Beginning February 1, 2018", but the FAQ page says "Beginning February 22, 2018". Which date is right?
Beginning February 1, 2018, changes will be made to the way PayPal creates, manages, and displays subscriptions. Below is a FAQ related to the upcoming changes being made to PayPal subscriptions.
FAQ says 1st, right?
"On February 1, 2018, changes will be made to the way PayPal creates"
But actually have been moved back from the 1st , until March 15th 🙂
"The changes to subscriptions will now begin on March 15, 2018."
Thanks for the heads-up on these changes. I had a few questions I was hoping someone may be able to help with:
What happens if the payment fails?
In case of I- subscriptions, subscription gets suspended and can be reactivated later. In case of S-, it gets cancelled.
For I- subscriptions, what IPN do we get if payment fails several times in a row? We still use old button code. Can users reactivate suspended subscription from their PayPal account? What IPN do we get when the user reactivates it?
