We are trying to accomplish the task below and are so lost on how to do it. We want to do this completely from our site without leaving it. Can any one help..

We would like to accept a customers credit card info and send it to PayPal to store so we can bill against it.
We will bill varying amounts based on the services they used during the month at the end of each month.

We have tried calling the METHOD: CreateRecurringPaymentsProfile to set up the profile. We then stored the Success PROFILEID - then latter when we are ready to bill the card (30 days latter) we would call the METHOD "DoReferenceTransaction" with PAYMENTACTION = "SALE". This fails because the PROFILEID we pass it as a REFERENCEID (from the CreateRecurringPaymentsProfile ) is invalid.

So, First - can we do what we want to do? Secondly - any help on which methods we should be calling and in what sequence.

We are so confused - the documentation is of very limited help.

thanks in advance
