  1. Set a date for gift subscription

    You should be able to select a date for the gift to go out on gift subscriptions. This probably needs to be linked up with the adding pre-purchase to subscriptions. So basically someone goes in, buys this 1 year of subscription for their friend... and then the system waits till that day, sends out an email for them to claim their account and that THAT creates a new order that starts the subscription process.

    Most people dont want to gift a never ending subscription... They want to buy them x amount of time and send it to them on their…

    • I'd love to "see" what the future payments will look like when I apply a coupon.

      I'd love to "see" what the future payments will look like when I apply a coupon.
      When I apply a recurring x1 coupon, I'd love to see a progression of what would be the next 5 renewals or so. At the moment I can see only a general renewal total price, it's unclear visually if the coupon will give a discount only for the next renewal or for eternity.

      • Free Trial Reporting

        Currently, there's no way to get a report of how many free trials are active for subscriptions. It would be tremendously helpful to either have a free trials tab to see a count and all free trials or a section in the reporting for Woocommerce for this.

        • 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.

          • Compatibility Subscriptions with Bulk Variation Forms

            The plugin Bulk Variation Forms is not compatible with your plugin WooCommerce Subscriptions.

            It's a must have because the chances are unlimited!

            • As an admin allow some options so that after users cancel subscription the subscription does not end on that day. Maybe cancel after 1 month

              As an admin allow some options so that after users cancel subscription the subscription does not end on that day. But would end on a later date as selected by the admin. Maybe cancel after 1 month, 2 weeks, 30 days or whatever. Allow the admin to select their own option.

              • Subscription Holiday Mode

                I manage the website for a company that provides subscriptions for physical products (delivered on a weekly or fortnightly basis) and it would be good to have the ability to set a holiday period, where the subscriptions wouldn't renew (as they're not delivering) and new customers could sign up but their subscriptions would start after the holiday period ends.

                • Prepaid gift subscriptions should not be considered a 'recurring payment' subscription when considering payment method

                  A few payment methods that I really want to offer, don't work well with subscriptions (bitcoin for example). When the customer pays for the subscription up front (like a pre-paid subscription), he should be able to use a payment option that is otherwise not available to subscriptions. Because pre-paid subscriptions are considered subscriptions however, Bitcoin is not shown as a valid payment method.

                  • Bulk Update Subscription Price when Subscription Product Price Changes

                    Right now, on a Subscription product when you update the price, all the Subscriptions that were created with that product do NOT update/change.

                    If you update a Subscription product price from $100 to $120, all those Subscriptions created at $100 are not updated to $120. You have to manually go to EACH subscription and update the price which is very time consuming when you have hundreds or thousands of subscriptions. There should be a bulk way to update all subscriptions pricing without having to go one-by-one through each active subscription.

                    • Subscriptions to renew on set dates

                      We want to set specific dates for subscriptions to renew. For example, if a customer purchases the product on February 15, the next available payment date is 1 April. The subscription would then renew on the 1 Apr, 1 Jul, 1 Oct, 1 Jan (every 3 months).

                      At the moment, if a customer purchases a subscription on Feb 15, the subscription starts on 1 March (with renewal every 3 months). We want to set standard renewal dates for all subscribers.

                      • 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.

                          • Finetune WooCommerce Subscription user interface for /checkout/ and /cart/ page

                            Hi,

                            I have a subscription website. The /checkout/ page shows the price 5 times:

                            xx subscription package x1 $50/month
                            Subtotal $50
                            Total $50
                            Recurring Total, Subtotal $50
                            Total $50

                            This looks really scary to the user. All they pay is $50 in this transaction. But the page make them wonder whether they are going to pay $100 or $250.

                            The WooCommerce checkout and cart page previously was designed for physical product. Subscription is mostly for virtual product. I would like WooCommerce Subscription give us more options to disable those display in cart, checkout page to suit our needs.

                            • 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…

                                I wondered if there was a way to offer an option to delay the start of a subscription? I want to market my subscription as a present, which means the subscription should be available from the time the present is given not from when it is purchased.

                                • ship on a different schedule than renewal payments and track shipping of each issue

                                  The idea of subscriptions started before computers and continues today as physically shipped products on recurring intervals that are different than payments intervals. For example, a quarterly magazine with an annual renewal. Tracking shipping of this very, very basic functionality is also necessary. At this point we spend days processing our database to determine who gets what issues of our magazine. It is enough to send us searching for a different product every quarter, or at least find a tutorial for woocommerce about this basic, but lacking functionality.

                                    I'm using WooCommerce and Subscriptions to sell access to premium content. Currently its configured with a 30-day free trial. So users sign up, enter their credit card, and as long as they don't cancel before the end of the trial, we ping them.

                                    I'd like to move the credit card entry to the end of the free trial. In other words, people would sign up, have access for 30 days, then have to enter their card to continue getting access. Is this an easy thing to do in WooCommerce, or do I need to do some work outside of WooCommerce…

                                    • Subscriptions - Enhanced Coupon Support for Active Subscriptions

                                      Once a user has an active subscription not much can currently be done in the form of coupons/discounts. It would be nice to have the ability to do any of the below:

                                      - Allow the user to apply coupons to his active subscription giving either another 1 time discount or additional subscription time
                                      - Allow users to gift free subscription time to other users which could then be applied to an active subscription
                                      - Redeem points for additional subscription time for an active subscription
                                      - Allow store credit to be used as payment method on more than the initial billing…

                                      • Subscriptions to add one-time payment with a monthly subscription product.

                                        It is very common for companies to allow a customer to pay up front for a subscription and still receive the product monthly. It would be great to have this option in the subscription plug-in. Payment settings and how often the product ships should be separate settings.

                                        • 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.
