Is Payflow Pro a second rate payment method or something? I can see Billing Agreement settings for every other payment method EXCEPT Payflow Pro. Even Payflow Link has Billing Agreement Settings.

I've also seen a few modules that list their supported payment methods and everything in Magento is supported with the exception of Payflow Pro.

I've checked the Payflow Pro SDK documentation and recurring billing is supported, but Magento doesn't seem to reflect this..

Payflow Pro does not support Billing Agreements out of the box. We released an extension last year which adds a number of features to the list of things Magento can do with PayPal. Among other things the module enhances the out-of-the-box functionality to include support for credit card tokenization and using Billing agreements with Payflow Pro.

Since it sounds like it does just what you need, you might check it out over on Magento Connect: PayPal Credit Card Tokenization Extension — For the sake of full disclosure: This extension is free-of-charge and open source, but it is put out by the company I work for.

  • You're my hero! This is exactly what I was looking for. I will try out the module and write a review as soon as I can. Maybe you ought to consider changing the name of this module? I never would of thought to search for "Tokenization Extension" to find this. Thanks! Commented Feb 20, 2014 at 20:53
  • Can you update the link? I am not finding it.
