      Are Paypal subscriptions really an easy method of making payments? How many agree that subscriptions are good option for recurring payments?

        Yes Paypal subscriptions are indeed a good option. They remind you about due payments. If you ever forget about a due payment like a server renewal, a paypal subscription can help you avoid termination of your server. But you need to be advised, that if you aren't using a specific company then the first thing you should do is cancel all subscriptions towards it.
