Our organization is currently transitioning into CiviCRM. We have some existing recurring contributions (with Paypal Standard) that are ongoing and we would like to import them into Civi. Why do we want to import them? Well, here is my current understanding of the situation:
When the monthly contribution amount is charged from the donor's card by Paypal, an IPN with the payment data is sent to our server. Civi processes the IPN and tries to relate it to an existing recurring contribution. If it finds the related recurring contribution, it creates a new single contribution record for the payment made. If it doesn't find a related recurring contribution, it gives an error.
So this is why we need to import (or somehow recreate) the recurring contributions. What are our options for that? I saw this wiki page, however in the Contributions tab inside a contact I can't find a "Submit Credit Card Contribution" button.
