    "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 https://merchant.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/?cmd=_render-content&content_ID=merchant/erp_overview

    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.
