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.

        Essential feature...I don't have 3 hours to update 350 subscriptions manually and calculate taxes etc...we pay a lot of money for your plugins and this makes sense to implement...

        I am very disappointed to find out this functionality does not exist by default.

        Hard to believe this wasn't a core function from the start. I first requested assistance for this over 2 years ago and no progress has been made.

        This s essential when living in a world where most prices change every year. Please add this soon

        How is this not a core function? Product prices change and price increases must be passed on to the customer. There should be a way to bulk increase and then notify the customer of the change and if they do not like the new price they can cancel their subscription. I could even live with it if price increases were reflected when a subscription expires and a customer resubscribes. But right from their My Account page they can resubscribe at the OLD price. At the very least give us the option to increase to current prices when they resubscribe or make it easy to remove the resubscribe option from the My Account page. The way it is currently set up is a mess. Any business owner knows you have to increase prices to match your increased cost for the item over time. Business 101 folks.

        We have thousands of subscribers, we need software to be able to methodically alter prices for subscriptions

      • R J commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yes please! We want to LOWER a price for our subscribers and would have to edit hundreds of orders manually to do this!

        Hi, we don't want or need this feature (we like the selling point to retain subscribers by allowing them to keep the original price they signed up with, and it seems fair/legal under the original terms of the agreement). But we DO very much want and need to find a way to prevent users from resubscribing at OLD OUTDATED PRICES from their Account page. This should be a setting, not custom code please! Thanks,

        I hear your reasoning, but in what reality is any price locked in for life?

      • bharat thapa commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This feature is nice to add but this can be bad idea as well i.e., if a user subscribes product for a particular price and admin can update price ( increase or decrease ), this might look like fraud right,
        there are more steps to take before adding this feature.
        1. subscriber should be notified before update ( or applying updated price )
        2. subscriber must be able to choose between updated price is okay for him or if not, get refunded and so on
        but this is long process that needs to be handled properly ( there must be some option that should please the customer ).
        and discussion just goes on and on .....

        Please contact Subscriptions support if you need to accomplish this currently. We are working on a free mini-extension that could help.

        I have to agree with the below comments. This is a significant flaw. No subscription product will maintain the same price forever and changing hundreds or thousands of subscribers manually is not cool.
