I have 60+ existing subscribers who signed up during a limited private invitation period while we tested the new site.
s2Member Pro was set up with PayPal account #1. PayPal account #1 had the wrong set of PayPal products (documented in agonizing detail here http://www.s2member.com/forums/topic/paypal-error-36-transaction-failed/). Basically, PayPal account #1 wants to speak in an API that s2Member doesn’t fully understand.
But s2Member and PayPal account #1 did have enough of a common tongue that these 60+ users managed to subscribe successfully (these 60 used a credit card to pay and not their PayPal accounts, it so happens).
Anyway, to get s2Member and PayPal speaking the exact same dialect, we called PayPal.
PayPal says that they can’t really change the account type once its up and running. They say the way to do it is to set up a PayPal account #2 that is outfitted with the right set of PayPal products and to tell s2Member to talk to that account.
So I’ve set up PayPal account #2 with the correct set of PayPal products, and I was about to go in and reconfigure s2Member to talk to PayPal account #2. But then I paused: what will happen to the existing 60+ subscribers once I do this?
(PayPal account #1 is not going away, by the way, if it makes a difference.)
