I am new to CiviCRM, and still feeling my way around. This issue starts with some IPN failure notifications we're getting from PayPal. Researching these, I found they are only occurring on recurring payments.
These are going through, which led me to see how these recurring payments are being set up. We have a FIXED 1 year membership. The PayPay recurring payments, however, are being set for 1 year from the initial subscription, or the ROLLING type.
Setting the IPN error aside for the moment, I am unclear on how FIXED memberships should be working with PayPal. They are being set as ROLLING. Is there a way to uncouple CiviCRM Auto-Renew from PayPal and manage it manually? Or is there something I am missing to have PayPal manage FIXED correctly?
This is CiviCRM 5.21.0, payment processor PayPal - Website Payments Standard
