    I've started a new thread to document my Lessons Learned, Issues, and future plans as I just opened up subscriptions in my community today.

    I signed up for a NoChex too, but they don't take bank accounts from the U.S.

    Does NoChex offer something like PayPal's IPN?

    I opened a NoChex account, but I'm not sure there's even a way to connect with an American bank account. I sent this question to them.

    Anyone in America using NoChex for subscription payments?

    Here's something we do, but I bet it requires a hack?

    In the CP there is a load limit option. We allows our subs to bypass that, so if server load is spiking, they can still surf the boards. Is a feature like this built in to the new subscription system?

    This sounds like a valid question for people using PayPal. I'm curious to hear what VB has to say about it.

    I don't think the data would be sent to the vBulletin unless someone clicked on a link specifically from your forums?

    thanks,

    You are notified by PayPal each time a transaction goes through.

    Besides messing up and testing on my admin account so that once I accepted I am locked out of admin. Do not try this at home kids, what a pain to fix.

    Anyway, everythings seems ok, I just have a quick question...

    I set the subscription for 2 days, but I haven't received a renewal notice yet. How often does this batch process run and does it only run at 7 days?
    Subscription emails I believe are sent out for accounts expiring within 2-3 days. This is controlled in the /includes/cron/subscriptions.php settings
    WHERE subscriptionlog.expirydate >= " . (TIMENOW + (86400 * 2)) . "
    AND subscriptionlog.expirydate <= " . (TIMENOW + (86400 * 3)) . "

    The frequency of the run is based on the settings in your Admin CP / Scheduled Tasks / Scheduled Task Manager / Subscriptions Removal. Hope this helps.

    With Paypal, I know it's been discussed here, but what determines which accounts automatically are accepted and which aren't? Is there a setting in Paypal that I can accept all. I don't see any reason you wouldn't accept it.

    Eliminates the manual process for the admin too.

    Thanks.

    Ok, so when you create a simple subscription through vBulletin w/ PayPal

    $5 for 1 month...

    Is this auto renewed by default, or is there something I have to customize beyond the basic subscription settings to have this work?

    What about with nochex? Does it work the same or different?

    No sorry. This would require hacking.
