How can we improve WooCommerce?

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.

    This should be an option triggered in the admin, votes or no votes.

    Agreed. Or at least the plugin should be made to recognise between a sale price and non-sale price, as otherwise the Sales price is forever pinned.

    +1 at least some kind of functionality to updated the price of existing subscriptions in BULK is a must.

    The manual maintenance to accomplish this is no longer feasible with the number of subscribers we now have registered. This request has been up for a year, can we get this function updated for all subscription products options asap?

    +1. Its really hard to image how this isn't included as core?? Surely the ability to change the price is key to selling anything right? Is there a way to hack the change thru SQL?

    We have over 4,000 subscriptions and want to lower our prices. Having to manually change each one of these is soul destroying :(

    Please implement a way for us to do this in bulk.

    A few months ago we lowered our shipping costs - I had to go through over 3,000 subscriptions changing them individually, now I have to do it again with over 4,000 :(

    What about next year when we have maybe 10,000 subscriptions and decide to lower our shipping costs again, or reduce the price of the subscription even further to incentivise more sales?

    This is essential.

    This is a must-have as the price for subscription is not following the product pricing lifecycle. Furthermore, price change will trigger customer service related issues for subscription base.

    An additional thought - perhaps when the price is raised Subscriptions could send an automatic email to the customer giving them the choice to cancel the subscription if they don't agree with the change?

    I would say that this is essential functionality. Whilst I understand the argument perfectly that a customer wouldn't like it if the paid $10 only to find the next month's jumping to $1000, that should not be the concern of WooCommerce. There are a huge number of use cases where the shop owner might need to raise *or lower* the cost of the subscription, and there should be an automated procedure whereby this happens. The best way would be a checkbox on an existing subscription product for when the price is changed to automatically change existing subscriptions, AND a bulk-edit option as suggested here.
