Recurring Payment Subscription Management
Please note that the management of the recurring subscriptions is done outside of the StreamingVideoProvider panel.
If some of your customers need to cancel the subscription at some point, you will need to do that via the payment gateway provider where the payment was taken from.
So if you are selling your tickets using lets say PayPal, you will need to sign in to your PayPal account, find the subscription using the search facility and suspend or cancel it from there.
To enable recurring payments click on the "PPV" button located next to the video name and set the video to "Paid / Password Protected" then enable your desired ticket and click on the "Modify" button. This will bring up a configuration window.
Here you should set the Ticket Name, Description, Price and Currency. Once done you will be able to choose your preferred ticket payment type such as "One-Off", "Monthly Recurring" or "Yearly Recurring". When you choose a recurring payment type please leave the expiry period "Unlimited" as it is not applicable for recurring payments.
When finished simply click on the "Save Changes" button to complete the set up of your ticket.
