We all know PayPal is just like a bank account. You can make use of it for different things like making a purchase online, sending funds, receiving funds/money from anywhere around the World probably if the country has been approved by Paypal. You can also withdraw your funds/money and spend it on your own.
But there are some websites that allow regular recurring payment when you make use of your PayPal account for an online payment. If the recurring payment is activated after your first purchase you will receive a mail from PayPal. The mail will be telling you that you have setup automatic payment for the website.
This implies that once you are due for the next payment on the certain website, the corresponding amount will be deducted from your PayPal account without your notice. But you will receive a mail telling you that you made a payment.
There are instances you may want to deactivate it or even have another plan with your next purchase. For me I don't like making pre-payment, I prefer making the payment at the point when needed by myself.
