I've been seeing the following error when using the Recurring Billing tools in sandbox (account is W3W3Q45W9798Y):
We are sorry, we are experiencing temporary difficulties. Please try again later. If this error occurred while making a payment, avoid duplicate payments by checking your Account Overview before resending a payment. For some browsers, this problem can be resolved by clearing or deleting cookies. Message 3005 I've tried clearing cookies, to no avail.
These steps seem to reproduce it reliably:
1. Open Tools > Recurring Payments > Create a Subscription button
2. Choose a button type of "Automatic Billing"
3. Click the "Learn more" button that has appeared in the form
(What I was actually trying to do if you're interested, is enable automatic billing through this link which I think should let me agree to the Ts and Cs)

Hi there, I am looking at migrating a merchant's card functionality so it can comply with PCI SAQ-D. This involves removing credit card forms from their site, which was easy for direct payments. Merchant also has repeat billing flows, flow 2 is the one I am looking to replace: 1. PayPal account: normal set up of auth/baid through checkout and Reference transactions are run against it later. 2. Card-only: customer enters card details on merchant site -> authorization is done via API call -> Reference transactions are done in the background regularly after that. For flow 2, I need something to replace this that *doesn't* capture card details on the merchant site. Guest checkout doesn't seem to support this, recurring payments and subscriptions both seem to require a PayPal account.

Hello all, I've been scouring the PayPal docs at length and have yet to come up with a clear picture of whether this is possible, and if so how to implement it, so I thought I'd come and ask: 1. Customer wants to set up repeat payments 2. customer does not have a paypal account 3. no credit card capture on merchant's site (ie hosted if possible) The way we used to do this was with a WPP flow (capture card details/agreement on merchant site, do an API call in the background to set it all up, charge as needed)using DoReferenceTransaction). A new requirement is that the functionality meet PCI SAQ-D, which means the CC form must be removed for repeat billing. I've struggled to come up with a solution for this, and as far as I can see a PayPal account seems to be required for all forms of repeat charging where the merchant does not capture the card details and post to the API. I think this can't be right, so I wonder if someone else could sanity check this for me by answering the following question: Are there are any PayPal products/flows that offer repeat charging (ie subscriptions, recurring payments, reference transactions) where there is a CC-only form we can use, that is hosted by PayPal? I'm really stumped here, so I would massively appreciate any thoughts anyone can offer. If there are various alternatives I'd appreciate hearing about any of them. Even confirmation that this is not possible would be helpful. Thanks for your time.
