Meteor and subscription payments every month? ex paypal

hi all,
I have a customer who need a web/app where the customers need to pay every month to use the web/app. like Spotify e.g.

Is that possible with metoer? and is there a example with it? can I use paypal or is there a better one?

It is possible in a lot of ways. For example with a lot of payment methods (Paypal, Stripe, Ontraport) you can use theyr’e webhook system. For this you create a API where the payment platform connects to your website and every time a payment is managed the webhook sends information to your platform through the API. The monthly payments are normally managed through the payment platform (you create a monthly subscription system, paypal has this).

Currently I am using Ontraport with webhooks and with Meteor I only store the last payment date and every time the webhook triggers I can see if the user cancelled, renewed or is a new payer and then change the user roles in the website (using alanning:roles).

We use Stripe and Lambda functions to handle webhooks. Meteor handles everything else.

We also use Stripe for subscription payments, but we handle the webhooks from Stripe right in our Meteor app using the simple:rest json-routes package to record when users subscribe, are charged, or cancel a subscription in our own Mongo db.

By some measures, iOS users spend 5x Android users on average, with iPad users even higher. So even though the 30% App Store subscription fee seems insane, it’s worth it since per user, you’re getting 5x the revenue. Their flow converts users who otherwise wouldn’t convert with Stripe.
