Minimum period for subscriptions before user can cancel

It would be useful to be able to set a minimum period on a subscription (i.e. before the user can cancel)

    Has this feature been implemented, or is there any other plugin that can provide this functionality? I agree, this is a crucial feature for subscriptions.

    07/19 - Is this feature actually implemented? I will buy a 5-sites-license but this is an important requirement. I'm glad to read this here before.

    05_2019 Has this feature been added yet? I am new to WooCommerce Subscriptions and I am surprised to discover that this is not available.
    I really need this feature.

    03_2019: Please add this feature. In Germany subscriptions that are paid monthly but cannot be cancelled after a minium period of 12 month are absolute standard. We need a feature that allows for setting a minium time before a subscription can be cancelled. Thanks!

    Just for tracking purposes as its not visible since when this topic is open. My comment has been added on ***********

    This is absolutely essential for subscriptions. Please add an option to define a minium period after which the subscription will end, independent of how long before the user has cancelled the subscription.

    Yes please add this option. Do not most subscriptions in the real world have a construct like this? You give the client a good deal because they commit for a certain period. But after that periode you do not want to bother them with administration. You just continue the deal...

    I am quite dumbfounded that this does not exist and the user can cancel at ANY TIME - which subscription in the real world works like this? Not many...

    Excellent idea, more people should get behind this. It's very common for a rolling 1-month subscription to be more expensive than a minimum 12 month contract for example.

    There is a similar feature request which also requests the ability to add an early termination charge. These two should be combined as they are extremely similar and would go hand in hand.
