Recurring payments in Drupal

5 March, 2015

Drupal is a great platform for commerce. For simple tasks it’s very easy to get started with the Commerce Kickstart distribution, but there’s no consensus on what to use for more complex features. This means you might need to perform a long research to be able to choose a solution for more complex e-commerce tasks. In a recent project we needed a solution for recurring payments, so I thought I’d share the results of our research.
