  1. Integrate Subscriptions and Gift Certificate Products

    It should be possible to make a Gift Certificate Product a Subscription product. The scenario is that someone buys a subscription that entitles them to one X and 10 Y per month, and the system automatically handles their balance, which can be applied at checkout.

  2. Subscriptions courtesy notification before auto renewal

    In the case of customers being on auto renewal, it may be polite business practice to notify customers a few days before hand that their credit card is about to be charged.

  3. Digital Subscriptions - Restrict Newer Subscribers from Viewing Older Content

    Our Digital Subscribers receive a new downloadable PDF file each quarter. So each quarter, we upload the new PDF file to the digital subscription product, however newer subscribers are able to view the older digital downloads.

    As a workaround, we are creating separate subscriptions for each quarter (i.e. Fall 2014, Winter 2014, etc) and uploading the PDF file to each subscription product. It's a bit of a manual process and I think there could be others out there with a similar need as ours.

    Adding something like a timestamp and restricting access to subscribers if they subscribed after the file…

  4. Editable expiry date for WooCommerce Subscription products

    We have a client who has a major subscription product, a membership, which should always expire april 30th every year. The one year subscription now expires after one year from purchase date, so we have to manually edit the next payment date. There will be hundreds of members paying the subscription fee, so it is a big resource investment to have a person frequently go through the subscriptions and changing the next payment date manually. Also, the payment gateway can't handle automated recurring charges.

    My ideal setup contains a feature for creating/editing/modifying subscriptions with individual expiry dates.

    I guess this…

  5. Allow reactivating when a subscription is in "pending cancellation" status

    I recently had a customer who decided to cancel, so I changed his subscription to the new "Pending Cancellation" status to allow his prepaid time to run out. During that time, he decided he did want to renew after all -- but there was no way to reactivate the subscription. He had to create an entirely new subscription!

    During the pending period, it should be possible to simply change the subscription status back to "Active" and then it would proceed to renew on the regularly scheduled date.

  6. Subscriptions extension: implement a cancellation period

    I would like to be able to define a subscription with an annual renewal period which needs to be cancelled 3 months (or x days) prior to the renewal date.

  8. Subscriptions upgrade/downgrade by "adding product"

    Add possibility to change(upgrade/downgrade) from product A -> (A + B)

    Here is an example:
    Store selling physical products A, B and C.

    All three products are simple subs, and grouped to the "same parent".

    - Customer has subscription with product A.
    - Clicks "Downgrade/Upgrade", because he(the customer) wants to change his subscription to from A to (A + B).

    At this point (Version 2.0.12) this is not possible. (Not possible because switching is currently heavily coded to re-calculate important subscription data based on the initial product, the new product and the current state of the subscription itself.)

    Wants this…

  9. Upgrade only

    Provide an option to allow upgrade of a subscription and not a downgrade. This way a customer could not go back to a lower subscription price.

  10. Subscriptions Support for Composite Products

    Add Subscriptions Support for Composite Products

    I need a way to offer Composite Products that are made up of variable Subscription options.

    Example:
    Subscription for an online service for X-amount/month (Composite Product)
    Option 1: Additional User Licenses for base subscription (variables= number of users, example: 15, 30, 45) for X-Amount/month

    Option 2: Mobile App licenses based on number of users for X-Amount/month (again with variable subscriptions).

    The idea is to allow the user to add additional users to their subscriptions as needed or to remove licenses from their subscriptions if their company no longer needs them.

  11. Charge a cancellation fee in Subscriptions

    It would be good to be able to charge a cancellation fee if a customer cancels their subscription before a set period.

    I offer subsidized pricing on GPS trackers if they sign up for 24 months, if they cancel before 24 months, they need to pay the additional cost of the GPS tracker.

    it would be good to automate this through the subscriptions plugin

  12. Integrate WooMemberships & Chained Products

    I would love to offer my members a free or discounted product with the purchase of a membership at checkout.

    Ex: When a member buys a membership they are given an existing product for free as a signup bonus.

    It's really odd that WooSubscriptionss doesn't integrate with "Chained Products".

  13. 3-month, 6-month and yearly subscriptions with monthly orders

    We ship a physical product and we use woocommerce subscriptions for our monthly subscription. We want to start 3-month, 6-month, and yealry subscription options, but the issue we've found is that those subscriptions won't produce monthly orders so we can ship the product every month. I think subscriptions should have the option to have shipping periods that are different from the billing period

  14. Subscriptions - Allow changing of quantity (and its calculation) when switching variable subscription

    I am not sure if this is actually a feature or bug. The current version of subscription (1.5.20) allows me to switch subscriptions between the variations. The billing calculation is done by rate/day.

    However, it does not allow me to switch subscription to the same variation (but different quantity). Changing the quantity increases/decreases the rate of the subscription. Also when I change the variations upgrade/downgrade, the calculation is also wrong as the system assumes that the switch is a 1xvariantA to 1xvariantB instead of a 1xvariantA to 5xvariantB which results in a wrong prorating of the 1st billing (with synchronisation…

  15. Free product with first subscription order

    Allow an admin to add free product(s) to the first subscription order.

    For instance if you were selling razor blade subscriptions, then allow a free handle and handle holder to be added to the first order.

    Could be handled in a similar fashion to current chained products but it would be a one-off addition.

    Great sales tool and incentive

  16. Be able To Send An Invoice To Client/ Invoice has a link to pay online with woo

    I use woocomerce for my subscriptions, paypal being the payment option. I Still have to go to paypal to create invoices for services i've done for clients. It would be very cool if I could go to my site, create an invoice and send it to my client, client has the ability to click on a link to pay in invoice that redirects to my site and ability to pay invoice through checkout. Also stores the invoice in the users account page.

  18. Woocommerce subscriptions - late fees / variable billing interval

    Allow a variable interval for subscription products. For example:

    $50 for first 5 weeks and then $10 per week.

    (In our case this would provide for a 5 week hire and then $10 week late fees until the product is returned).

  20. Set future start date for subscriptions

    I don't know how many businesses could benefit from being able to delay the start date for subscriptions. The model is especially valuable to private education institutes that want to allow early registration for classes that start at a later day.

    PLEASE make this a thing. Please.
