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.

        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??

        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

        295 votes only in this thread. As development team says 150 votes guarantees they will make it I take it this is being done something about?
