save_paypal_bill_agreement_m Guide

Confirms that a billing agreement has been accepted by the account user, and that PayPal is able to authorize a payment against that billing agreement. The token is a PayPal session token created by the init_paypal_bill_agreement call. If the billing agreement was accepted, then Aria saves the associated agreement identifier in the database to use for future transactions with this account.

The merchant must have their PayPal Payment Receiving Preferences (under Profile on PayPal) set to block "pay with eCheck" (the box must be checked, and this does not prevent PayPal users from funding transactions with their bank account). If this is not done, any end user who needs to pay remaining balances (beyond the amount in their PayPal account) with a bank account will be unable to make payments.

When the box is checked, such bank account funded payments will be secured by the user's credit card in case the bank account transfer fails. The merchant may also choose to have alternate currencies converted to their primary currency on that screen. Merchants who would like to collect in multiple currencies should either elect to convert there, or add additional Currency Balances in their PayPal Profile.
