Manage Subscription Passwords the Easy Way

Use PayPal’s Password Management feature and a PayPal-provided Perl script to get a subscription service up and running quickly.

PayPal offers a subscription service [Hack #61] that enables you to set up your customers to pay you on a recurring basis. But if you offer access to an online resource, it can be a pain to manage all the subscribers manually. You’ll have to monitor your PayPal account or email notifications, activate service each time you get a new subscriber, email customers their usernames and passwords, and deactivate the accounts of canceled subscribers precisely at each subscription’s end of term. It goes on and on. That ain’t any kind of fun.
