Important Notice regarding the new PayPal Checkout integration
At this time, it is not possible to create subscriptions with the new PayPal Checkout module. We expect this to be resolved in the very near future once PayPal makes further refinements to their onboarding automation. We will deliver a maintenance update as soon as these changes are available. In the meantime we recommend continuing to use the existing PayPal integration in cases where the majority of your business is subscription/recurring in nature.

Update for the cPanel Licensing Automation Module
An update has been released for the cPanel Licensing Automation module. This is a required update for compatibility with WHMCS 7.9. The latest version of the module can be downloaded from the WHMCS Marketplace. To learn more about this addon, please see the release announcement.

Getting the Update
Automatic Update
You can update to the latest version of WHMCS using the Automatic Updater. Simply navigate to Utilities > Update WHMCS to begin the update process.

As always, a download is also being made available for those who wish to install or upgrade manually. You can download WHMCS 7.9 from our downloads page.

Thank you for continuing to support and use WHMCS and we hope you enjoy the latest version!
