Hello, I am interested in using Foxycart with Coolcommerce for Expression Engine. We will need to set up recurring payments for one of our items. Can we accomplish this with Foxycart?

    Yes, you certainly can, but at this point we'd recommend... not PayPal. They're going through some changes that make it slightly difficult to get going for a new store. We'll be updating the wiki with details. It's possible, but it's not the most straightforward process.

    Some subscription details are on this page:

    If you're in the US, I'd recommend using CDG/Quantum:

    Glad to have another CoolCommerce user.
  • Bummer. We are already set up with Paypal and b/c it is so ubiquitous we'd like to stick with it. Is it not going to work?
  • brettbrett FoxyCart Team
    It will, but you may have to ask them to allow transactions to go through without the CSC (card security code). Go ahead and set it up, then set a daily subscription to see what happens and make sure it goes through correctly. Let me know if not.

    (Please note that you have to have PayPal Website Payments Pro, not PayPal Standard.)
  • Gotcha. Thanks! So I have to "ask" PayPal? Is there place on the PayPal Website Payments Pro control panel to toggle this?
  • brettbrett FoxyCart Team
    You'd think, and there actually is a setting for "mismatched" CSCs, but it doesn't actually apply. I'm currently dealing with this issue for another user and will update with explanation if they provide any, but for now I'd try running some tests and seeing what works. You'll probably get error 10748. I should be getting more info on this today or Monday, depending on how quickly PayPal gets back to me.
  • brilliant. can I look here for the update?
  • Brett,

    I hate to hijack my own disucssion, but what platform is this forum built on?
  • brettbrett FoxyCart Team
    But we'll be changing eventually:
