    monthly PayPal purchasing

    I'm making a web-application that requires 1 single $10 payment on the 2nd of each month.

    How I want it to work is this:
    1- User signs up & get's 1 month's cycle free
    2- Then, access is disabled until they purchase access again (hence, the monthly)
    3- Once Payment has been made (via PayPal), a script is run, telling DB that payment has been made
    4- Access is granted again.

    i would say to use PayPal IPN to notify your server of payments made.
    then you could run a cron job to go through the users in your database, check when they last paid, and disable them if need be.

    Is there a PayPal service thingy that allows people to send a pre-determined amount & returns a custom URL?

    Do you mean the PayPal IPN?

    Yeah, sorry. I hadn't looked in to the Paypal IPN properly.
