How can we improve WooCommerce?

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.

        I can't believe this isn't here yet. Why is Woocommerce silent on this clearly very popular issue?

        This seems like a pretty basic option to include. I want to offer a 12 month subscription, with options to pay monthly, 2-monthly or 3-monthly, to a product that is shipped weekly. Only weekly.

        There is high demand for this feature!

        This is the bread and butter of subscription boxes, you need to be able to offer a monthly, quaterly, 6 month and yearly subscription options. Check out Cratejoy, they do a nice job of this. I ended up setting up shipping classes to make sure that I can offer these with proper shipping charges, but I had to go to a flat rate for all of my shipping for this.

        I have my fulfillment using shipstation so they see the monthly orders come in from that dashboard. The current work around with the sign up fee might work operationally to have a new order come in each month but the customer facing part is confusing $sign up fee and $0/month for x months. We need to be able to have a product that sells for $x upfront with a subscription duration period that triggers a new order each month for x months.

        Still confused as to why this isn't being commented on as a viable addition to the plugin by woocommerce devs. I sell a magazine subscription, which is of course a yearly subscription payment, but need to ship the magazine separately throughout the year. Definitely not alone in my need for this.

        New to WooCommerce and disappointed this feature is not available. In addition to a monthly option, I would like to offer customers a lower price for locking in upfront payments of 3, 6 and 12 months. So for example, the customer is charged a lower price every 3 months, 6 months or 12 months, but they are still shipped the product every month. I assumed this would be a standard feature. An update on this feature would be great. Thanks.

        I'm contemplating paying large sums to make this happen with a third-party developer. Seriously am in high need of this. Any feedback/timeline would be great.

        This really needs to be addressed. Been checking to see if it's in 3.0 but it doesn't appear to be. :-( You can fake it with a non-auto renewing variable product, but you can't make it work AND make the subscription auto-renew.

        Desperately needed.

        I need this feature too. We are a restaurant which sells weekly and monthly meal subscription.
        We need to deliver the food daily, but we will charge for the full period at the beginning of subscription.

        I vote for this cos our subscription plan is shipping the product each month for 3 months than after 2 months for unlimited period...

        This is so key for so many subscriptions. Is it really that difficult to add in a feature of 'pay monthly receive quarterly' for example??

      • mattmikullamattmikulla commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Please integrate payment up front for multiple renewal cycles.

        We need to offer a year at a discount for a quarterly subscription but still need to generate the quarterly orders in our system for the customer and shipping.

        I need to charge customers weekly but ship monthly or quarterly or half yearly or yearly
