I use Discover for almost everything, which you all do not accept. Using PayPal to support recurring payments would allow me to use this method of payment without having to place a deposit down every couple months.
We need this feature asap
We're going to look into this =]
Paypal recurring would be great for me too
Please vote down. Higher costs are passed to the consumer. Use Visa or MC rather than the "fake reward" cards. There is probably a reason that they choose not to accept Discover. Discover is a higher cost card and wether Digital Ocean chooses not to or they are using a bucketed merchant provider, it is not there for a reason. The only reason it works with PayPal pricing is the dupes that use debit cards and Visa's under the high cost service.
Matt, paypal has fairly normal prices for credit, just like visa or MC
Essentially the same
PayPal recurring will be awesome
+3! :) Some of us get small revenue streams to paypal (ads, small freelance contracts, license sales). It is very convinient to spend them to digital ocean hosting automagically.
This is a realy good idea!
I realy need it!
It would be great!
Almost a year later, and still no option for recurring paypal payment?
Sorry to revive an old topic, any update on this?
I'm a brand new DO user and discover, if I'm correct, that recurring PayPal payments marked "planned" here since one year are not available yet.
Please note: using PayPal vs. credit cards from Europe - like me - is usually a must-have (no bank currency exchange charges/fees...).
A year later....
Any updates on this? It's been 1.5yrs since the last official update by Moisey.
Sure would love to have this feature. I don't link giving my CC info online.
+1 - You can use Recurring Payments or Reference Transactions
I don't like when I have to change credit card numbers but when it happens, this is a good solution because I know my bill will get taken care of by paypal even if I didn't update the credit card with paypal. My secondary payment option on paypal reoccurring payments is my bank account. so digitialocean would be guaranteed to get paid.
It's very easy to implement recurring PayPal transactions, it's a minimal change from how you do it today: https://developer.paypal.com/docs/classic/express-checkout/ht_ec-refTrans-SetEC-DoRefTrans-curl-etc/
Because you don't get an invoice for the one-time payments it's a nightmare for book keeping!
Like for e.g. Spotify, Plex and many other services, please make sure that CreditCard is not the only automated invoicing service. Not in all countries this is the easiest way of paying, so my suggestion would be to have PayPal also installed in recurring payments, or other services possible (e.g. in Netherlands iDeal).
You won't be notified about changes to this idea.
