Having been involved with PayPal subscriptions with the Open Rights Group,
it's, quite frankly, a complete arse.
Every time a PayPal user changes their card details, PayPal cancels all

feel free to solicit one-offs through them) and just stick with STOs, which
are easy enough to set up with any UK bank.
