    I would like to setup automatic billing with PayPal and would like to know how to set it up,

    I send daily leads to my client and would like to be able to automatically bill once per week for the leads that we have sent them.

    Has anyone experience with implementing this system or offer advice as to how to set it up?

    Thanks in advance,
    Beav

    If you want to do a single amount its easy - you just create a button and use the "subscription" option, chose the variables (timescale, amount). and your good to go.
    If you want database integration its a bit more work - you can host a file on your server that paypal will communicate with and you can then make amendments to your backend depending if the client pays, cancels etc.

    If you want things fully automated using paypals API then its even more difficult - and I think possibly this may only be possible now using their business pro account which has a monthly fee attached to it.

    Paypal has a lot of merchant tools. If you don't want to do it manually, check them out. A good option is subscription mode, but that's only for one amount.

    It sounds like you need different amounts of money billed per customer... so I wouldn't go with subscription billing. I believe there is a way to do mass billing with a comma delimited spreadsheet, where you just upload the payment requests to paypal in a spreadsheet, and it sends everything automatically. Paypal business customer service is super helpful also.
