Do I have to create a customer billing agreement before I create a recurring payments profile(Paypal)

I am creating a social media pay site and need to create a recurring billing profile for each person that registers for the site.  I downloaded the soap api as I woud like to make the transactions seamless to the user and not display any paypal buttons, just have the transactions go through my interface.  I have several questions, for one, Do I need to call the SetCustomerBillingAgreeement before I call the CreateRecurringPaymentsProfile?  I do not see any place asking me to enter the customers address information, where do I enter the persons Billing information, name, address, city, state, zipcode, credit card information, etc? I really need documentation detailing how to perform the necessary steps for creating, updating, and setting up a customer billing agreement.

You don't if you are using paypal, this is customer confidential information, you get just enough information to create your invoice, and to receive a payment into your business account of preference. That's it.  You don't get the other information as YOU don't need it. you have a service/product, the customer has money, you recieve money, the customer recieves the product, you don't need to know HOW it was paid or any other details other than what you need to provide the service/product.

This way you BOTH are protected.
