    "Direct Payment Recurring Payments" is only applicable to Paypal Pro and not for Standar Paypal accounts.

    Is this the issue you were having? Please correct if not.

    I also searched Paypal and it seems they have new service for Standard Paypal accounts called Enhanced Recurring Payments for PayPal Payments Standard 

    Check it here

    Perhaps you can make use of this option on your Standard Paypal account also.

    Hope this help. Please inform us if you need further assistance.
