    PayPal offers Enhanced Recurring Billing for about $20 per month which it says will allow automatic periodic charges from customer credit cards.

    Do I need this to use Jotform's subscription function?

    Does the subscription function automatically charge credit cards or only create customer invoices?

    I believe you are referring to the payment subscription in your form and not the paid subscription here in JotForm services.

    If you are using a Paypal Standard account, I believe you need that feature. However if you have a Paypal Pro, the Direct Payment Recurring Payments should be applicable.

    In Paypal Standard account, the option to turn on or off the "Paypal Account Optional" is not available.
