Recurring billing: how to add setup fee on the first month

Posted on


consider a common scenario:

a gym with recurring monthly billing (say $30), with one-time setup fee on 1st month (say $10).


How to implement that with paypal APIs/SDKs ?


I know i may create a recurring billing of $40 at beginning, and i would apply a $10 Discount from paypal control panel after the 1st cycle (month), so that it would be $30 from the 2nd month on.


But i would like the subscription to "natively" support this type of scenario, and do the above automatically, without me having to manually apply discounts later on, or any tricks.
