What can we do to make it easier to design with Wild Apricot?

PayPal Standard limitations on WA

PayPal now offers many new options on it's site. For example, a basic subscription can have a duration (12 months for example). For an extra fee they also offer Installment payments and automatic billing (which is quite different than subscriptions) which would be great for our sponsorships which are a high dollar value. But WA hasn't changed it's software to reflect these new options and allow us to utilize them.

Can these options, in full or part, be added through the code? I know PayPal has the ability to add them through API but I can't tell how to make it work with WA.

Having these features would solve SO many problems we have with payment plans as what we are offered now is not adequate to us or our customers.

        I do not have an answer but have a similar question:

        I believe that Enhanced Recurring Payments for PayPal Payments Standard is a fairly new service. It allows recurring payments to be made with a credit card instead of just a PayPal account. In the past PayPal PayFlow Pro with Recurring Billing was the only option for paying recurring payments with a credit card.

        Here is a link to information about the service on the PayPal website: https://cms.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/?&cmd=_render-content&content_ID=merchant/erp_overview

        Does anyone know if Wild Apricot supports Enhanced Recurring Payments for PayPal Payments Standard? I know they support Recurring Payments for PayPal Standard, however that option requires users to create and use a PayPal account.Any insight would be appreciated.
