Send a Paypal Subscription (recurring payment) Link via Email

My business does subscriptions for its clients, so that we can not only host their website, and keep their domain registered, but also provide updates and tech-support, etc., long after we build them an awesome-looking website. A lot of the clients we’ve been blessed to work with lately are awesome, and also happen to have very unique requirements for their new business, or to take an existing one to a new level. This means we’re working on a lot of custom projects. They don’t fit our typical “small business website” packages very well, so we create customized ones.

Customized packages also means customized monthly subscription fees. But searching all over Paypal didn’t reveal any way to sent a “payment request” that was for a subscription payment. I also tried searching Paypal’s knowledge base, and nothing there either. Finally after going back and forth with email tech support, an agent sent me this link.

It explains that you can create a subscription button, designed for embedding in a webpage, but then there’s an email option so you can write your own email, just embedding the code, or copy/paste the link within the code into an email, and request that your client use it, to sign up for the appropriate subscription.

Help Us Improve Our Business

My wife and I run a small business called FiddlerStudios. We offer awesome websites for small businesses, bloggers, and even private family sites or eStores for people who want to sell their product online.

The way that we’re different from hiring your typical web-designer/developer is that we don’t just build the site, then turn it over to our clients. Instead we register the domain, host the site, and everything, so our clients don’t have to worry about it. We even include updates with our packages, so we can update the site for the client on a regular basis.

But we’re also different from these large companies that offer “turn-key” (code for “a template so your site looks just like everyone else’s”) websites in that we make each site unique (no over-used templates here), plus we give each of our clients, individual time and attention during setup, and as long as they keep their site with us.

How You Can Help

We need feedback on our main website at So if you would:

  1. Please take a few minutes to review We want to know if its clear how our website packages work, and if there’s anything confusing about the site or the packages we offer.
  2. Then visit to submit your questions/feedback. Vote for other people’s ideas that you agree/disagree with, then submit your own if its different from those already there.

Thanks in advance for your help!
