I could not resist the Year One Anniversary offers, so bought some using PayPal.

One stage in the payment processing was signing up to future pre-approved payments by clicking "Agree and Continue". There is no other way forward. So I did that and completed the order, then went back to PayPal and cancelled the Billing Agreement.

Please protect me from myself :) and make that sign-up optional.

DarkStar,

Thank you!

When checking out from Cherry Audio, make sure to NOT click the "Save payment information" and that should help.

@CherryGarcia,

It seems that the CherryAudio site doesn't honour that setting for PayPal. I did quite a bit of testing the other day to try and get PayPal through without the automatic payments (with or without that checkbox clicked). I ended up giving in and moving to a credit card payment (which works fine).

I had some email discussion with Eric @Cherry Audio but it seems that this is a feature of the current site.

I had double-checked that that check box was not enabled.

For me, it would be better if the pre-approved purchases was an opt-in process, rather than automatic.

I was told by the web dev that that should help. At any rate, we have some plans to address this in a future update. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.
