    Auto renewal has failed for me, checked paypal in case cards out of date, that was all ok.
    when I click on the renew tab it takes me to choice of paypal or stripe thingy. click on paypal, wheels turn and it gives a message that " something has gone wrong".
    thoughts?

    yep,

    So it appears our PayPal account has been limited just the last few days as there is not enough business information held in our account details - we now have to provide a bunch of paperwork to unlock our PayPal account - which is going to take about a week as it will be manually reviewed. Long story short, I'm unable to do this online via the PayPal dashboard because business details entered from 18 years ago can not be user edited due to who-da-****-knows-why (PayPal is such a shitty system).

    I've been on phone with PayPal support for about an hour, I'm almost impressed with the call center service but the folk there have their hands tied on the way the system works - so for me, I'm done with PayPal in the long term and I won't be enabling it on XF 2.0

    @markopolo -> PM's pls.

    What about Christmas gift subscriptions? Will they be available this year?

    I completely forgot about doing Xmas gifts this year, probably because almost no one buys them. Maybe 4 sold last year of which only one was actually gifted.

    Credit Card via Stripe. The auto subscriptions work the same. In fact more reliable from my side. PayPal is now usurped for micro transactions, plus its legacy role as an escrow payment service just gets in the way technically. Few subscription services offer PayPal anymore and certainly none of the mainstream services such as Spotify or Netflix.

    So this snafu is a timely catalyst for dropping it, which is one less thing to build out with the XF2 upgrade.

    I switched my renewal from Paypal to Stripe when it expired a few weeks ago.

    So if I switch to swipe will it charge me again?

    Should I just wait til it expires again?

    But happen before the above advice! I was wondering if I should set up stripe now (not pay pal, which is what I did it with before this thread was even created)

    Hmmm seems my membership has disappeared as well. I did not get any notification that it had been cancelled, first I heard was a message today saying I was near the 1000 free posts limit.... Oh well guess I have to set up a swipe DD.
