Easily create recurring PayPal subscription URLs

Well, I've recently had to create some URLs for people to send me recurring PayPal payments. I find that if you have to modify it at all for a different subscription it can be a pain, gettting lost in the URL encoded string and PayPal parameters. So I whipped up this little JavaScript form to easily craft the recurring payment URLs. Here you go, just bookmark this page, and come back whenever you need a new URL:

  1. Simply brilliant! Well done!

    Col ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Thanks for a nice tool.
    I have one question – Can we create subscriptions for Personal paypal accounts ? ( because there is no subscrition option in Personal accounts – they say to upgrade to premiere accounts )
    Will this work for personal accounts ?

  3. I have no idea really. I only use a business account, or premiere, if that's what it's called. Sorry.

  4. I continually use this page and never has it failed me.

  5. Great tool thanks a lot ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I just love it, great service. It has helped me a lot.

  7. A truly useful tool … thanks!

  8. This looks brilliant and something as helpful as this is the only way I can see myself ever taking advantage of paypal subs. The only problem for me is that the currency does not change even though I changed it in the currency field. Also as the Cost field has $ in front I guess that will dictate the $ instead of รขโ€šยฌ in the payment request?

  9. I don't know why it's doing that. The $ in front of the cost field doesn't affect the paypal subscription link. It still passes the right currency code. Maybe it just defaults to the currency code of the paypal ID used?

  10. Nicely done Justin

    One thing, your missing an ampersand in from of the currency_code pair so its creating

    no_shipping=1&no_note=1currency_code=GBP&bn=PP%2dSubscriptionsBF

    and therefore the currency_code isn't being picked up

  11. I notice there is no param for return to url – is it possible to pass or only can use the url specified in the paypal acocunt?

    Great Job – very useful

  12. Brilliant ! Works like a charm ! Please fix the missing ampersand before currency_code in the generated URL. Great work !
