I'm trying to implement recurring profiles for a few items on my site (version 2.0.1.1) I created a monthly recurring profile and added it to a product, and I'm able to successfully create an order with the profile. However, if I try to create an order without a profile selected, I get a "Please select a payment recurring!" error. I am able to create a "No Subscription" recurring profile for $0, but I'm not sure that is the best route. Any ideas?

Those profiles attached to products are not optional for the customer. Also PayPal will give an error as the price can't be zero unless it's a trial, so your workaround won't help. Profiles and regular direct payments are separate entities and treated as such by PP.
The only thing I can think of is modify OpenCart to not add the profile to cart at all when not selected.

Thank you for the clarification artcore.

I didn't actually test a purchase with my $0 recurring profile, but I'll take your word on that. Any idea on how to implement the suggested fix? I can't imagine I'm the only one that has thought of a subscription/non-subscription for an item.

It's a good suggestion indeed. Should be an easy fix. I'll whip up something in the coming days on a spare moment.

I would really appreciate it! I would certainly like to compensate you for your time as well. I'm looking to set up a subscription based service on my website that will hopefully appeal to our customer base.

Thanks in advance!
I've been working on a few extensions to improve on the recurring profiles in Opencart and your suggestion is certainly worthwhile. Your choice for Opencart is a good one, it's very feasable to do what you want ;D
Let me know if you bump into something.

Thank you very much artcore! Been out of state for business, so sorry I haven't got back sooner.

Loaded it up and was able to add a recurring profile to product and add a single item/subscription with no error message. I'm going to set up a test tomorrow to push it through paypal's payment portal, but so far so good.

Thank you again for your time. PM your paypal email and I will send you something for your time. :)

Hi @artcore. I'm new to OpenCart and running to the same issue now. I tried clicking your link above, but it gives a 404. I am using 3.0.2 and trying to implement the same functionality on our site by not making a recurring profile mandatory.

Any help you can provide to me?

Thank you so much.

You're posting in the v2.x releases. However, here's a free extension you could use and easily convert it to v3.x releases or use it with the template switcher extension: https://www.opencart.com/index.php?rout ... n_id=27638

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming.
