I have a membership site that I am starting up and I would like to use Paypal's subscription services for my payment gateway. Here is my question...

Is it possible to get the Subscription Number (the unique ID that PayPal creates) sent as a variable to my "Thank You" page so that I can have it inbedded in a form as a hidden field?

I want to do this so that it can be entered into my members database. The only other option I can think of would be to make the subscriber cut and paste it from their confirmation email but that would be a pain.

IPN looks like it is much more than I need to do this and I'm not sure it would do what I want to do anyway.

Thanks for your help.

Include a form field in your subscribe button named "rm" and set it to "2".

Keep in mind that some of your subscribers will not click the Continue button so IPN is more reliable if you truly need that information passed to you.
