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.

Getting Started

  1. 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between pay-per-view single and recurring payments?

  1. Let’s say your viewer purchase a ticket that cost $10. If the payment type was single payment, then the user will be charged once. If it was set to recurring then it will be charged on recurring basis based on monthly or yearly basis.

What happens with the ticket access if user cancels the recurring payment via PayPal?

Currently we do not get sent any feedback information when a ticket is cancelled via PayPal. As such we are unable to cancel the ticket access automatically in this event. You must monitor your cancellations and manually suspend / block the access codes upon cancellation of a recurring payment via payPal. We plan to automate this process in the near future.

Does it cost me more if I choose to charge my customers on recurring basis?

No, we charge you for your service plan/addon and we do not apply any commission on your Pay-Per-View sales.

Is there a relationship between ticket expiry period and recurring terms?
