Is it possible to add a PayPal subscription end date? If the subscription purchased is for 3 months, how do we stop PayPal from billing the user at the end of 3 months?
- JotForm FounderaytekinAnswered on June 21, 2010 at 10:34 AMSend them these instructions:
1. Log into your PayPal account
2. Find the latest payment you made to us
3. Click on your subscription number
4. Click on "Cancel Subscription" button.
- techtriadincAnswered on June 21, 2010 at 10:37 AMThanks for the reply, but I don't think you understood my question. If we use Jotform to create a form where a user buys a subscription and it's a 3-month subscription, can we build the form so that PayPal STOPS billing the user at the end of 3 months? Or is that not possible using Jotform to sign up a user for a limited-time subscription?Thanks again for responding so quickly.
- JotForm FounderaytekinAnswered on June 22, 2010 at 04:30 AMI understand the problem. Yes, it is currently not possible to add a limit to the recurring subscriptions on JotForm. I added this to our suggestions list.

This feature of "limiting" subscriptions is available directly through Paypal. It would be AWESOME if it was available through Jotform. Please consider adding this to Jotform in the future. I would like to do 3-6-12 month subscriptions for my customers with some kind of end to their obglitaion.

I second the desire for an ability to limit the number of months on a subscription :-) Would be VERY nice to have sir.

I believe it is available on the API as well. So, it should be possible. I added this to our feature requests list.

Controllling the number of paypal subscription payments would be HUGE!!! I hope this is high on the wish list :-) Thanks jotform!

Any chance this is possible yet....or coming soon?

This feature is already available . Please follow the steps below
1.Select the desired Payment Gateway (ie : Paypal)
2- On the wizard, select Sell Subscriptions
3. Select one of the recurring options (Daily, Weekly ,Bi-weekly, Monthly, Bi-Monthly, Quaterly, Yearly, etc)
I have customized the label and changed to "Donation" instead of "New Subscription". You can also set a Trial Period
- JeffAJohnsonAnswered on August 20, 2012 at 04:57 PMThanks, but I don’t think this does what I want to do. I want to set things up so that they can subscribe for XX per month for YY months. This would mean that after YY months the subscription would automatically terminate--they could chose to pay $25 for 3 or 6 or 12 months and then their subscription would automatically end after the set time period. I can do this when building a PayPal button.

The recurring subscription can be set for a limited number of months.
But I think you do not only require to be able to setup a recurring payment for X months but to have the ability to make jotform to terminate the subscription into your own system, am I correct? If that is the case, this is something that cannot be accomplished by Jotform automatically.
However there is a workaround where a programming taks would be involved in your side. You can setup your form to post submissions Data into your database
