Hi, I have younger kids using my crunchyroll and I don't want them charging out random things. I can't remove my paypal, only cards?

Thanks

Set your PayPal so you have to put your password in each time you charge it (mine is set up this way, so I know you can do this). Then it won't matter what they click on because they can't charge stuff unless they know your password.

Well, that means you have effectively cancelled your recurring subscription. What will likely happen is that you will be able to play out the remainder of your pre-paid time, but when your next automated payment is attempted, that will fail, and your account will go into limbo, for some varying period of time, where you may or may not have premium service. If you actually want to keep the service, judging by other users' reported problems in the help section, you probably won't be able to resolve resubscribing yourself, without contacting support directly; not via this forum nor via the normal web sign-up method. Someone will probably need to do something manual to reset your account so that you can resubscribe.

With Paypal, a recurring payment is an automatic approval for a subscription for a fixed amount with a fixed cycle. No one can alter the terms, neither price, nor time period, except you cancelling it. If you truly did wish to end your subscription, you did the necessary correct action, otherwise, you could continue to be billed from Paypal, apparently (again, judging from other users' responses here) even if you tried to cancel your subscription via the web interface directly on CR's website.

That recurring payment could not have been used to purchase something else. I've never seen it myself, where making any random (not recurring) purchase using Paypal, additional or otherwise, did not require you to directly sign in at the time of transaction with your id and password.
