Recurring Payments for Ad Agency

It took us a while but we’ve finally managed to implement recurring payments in Ad Agency. Now, when an advertiser reaches the end of a time-limited campaign, such as a monthly placement, they’ll be charged again through Paypal and a new campaign will begin automatically.

How does it work?

You can choose whether to activate recurring payments on the approvals tab,. You have three options:

  • No – Recurring payments are inactive.
  • Yes – Recurring payments are active. Once the campaign has ended, the advertiser is charged again and a new campaign is created automatically.
  • Ask Advertiser – During the purchase of the first campaign, the advertiser is asked whether s/he wants to auto-renew when the campaign expires.

If recurring payments are activated, PayPal creates a new profile for the subscription. The advertiser is notified and can cancel at any time

Important notes:

  • Recurring payments work only with PayPal – other payment plugins are not supported at this time.
  • Recurring payments only work with time-limited packages. Paypal will not allow placements based on impressions/clicks to have recurring payments.
  • Recurring payments is not suitable for Joomla 1.5, only Joomla 1.7/2.5.

We recommend that you set campaign auto approval to “Yes.” The advertiser will not have to wait until after their payment has been made for their ads to show.

Video Tutorial

Start now:

  • Upgrade to the latest version, simply download the package, unzip it and install on TOP of current installation. There’s no need to uninstall.
  • On Ad Agency backend, go to Packages and make sure you have at least one time-limited package. If you don’t have one, create one.
  • Go to Settings->Approval.
  • Choose “Yes” or “Ask Advertiser”.
  • Save

That’s it! You’re all set for recurring payments.
