  1. 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.

    • Subscription Coupons - defining the number cycles that discount would be applied

      The Recurring Product Discount Coupons should have an option enabling the merchant to define the number of cycles that discount would be applied, for example, only for the first three recurring payments (including initial). After that the discount would not be applied.

      • Subscription: Free trail without cc needed; ask for creditcard/paypal when free trail ends, not upfront

        I'm using WooCommerce and Subscriptions to sell access to premium content. Currently its configured with a 30-day free trial. So users sign up, enter their credit card, and as long as they don't cancel before the end of the trial, we ping them.

        I'd like to move the credit card entry to the end of the free trial. In other words, people would sign up, have access for 30 days, then have to enter their card to continue getting access. Is this an easy thing to do in WooCommerce, or do I need to do some work outside of WooCommerce…

        • Anytime Subscription Renew in Woocommerce Subscription Extension

          In the Subscription Extension they get an email before thr subscription ends and they can see thr subscription details on the My Account Page. Now what i propose is (which looks like a standard option) for an option just in case if any subscriber want to renew his subscription manually (e.g. may be he likes my service and want to extend the subscription right away for an year or two). Something like as we have an option on the Order Page to Reorder.

          Hope that make sense.

          • 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.

            • Subscription on the checkout cart

              That would be nice if the user could choose a bunch of products and then subscribe to these on the checkout page.

              The subscription would be on a variable amount of products and on a variable price, depending of the cart at the end.

              This is quite different than what offers the subscription extension right now (and the use of variable subscriptions does not allow you to do what i'm thinking of)

              • Subscriptions - Enhanced Coupon Support for Active Subscriptions

                Once a user has an active subscription not much can currently be done in the form of coupons/discounts. It would be nice to have the ability to do any of the below:

                - Allow the user to apply coupons to his active subscription giving either another 1 time discount or additional subscription time
                - Allow users to gift free subscription time to other users which could then be applied to an active subscription
                - Redeem points for additional subscription time for an active subscription
                - Allow store credit to be used as payment method on more than the initial billing…

                • Delay Start of Subscription

                  I wondered if there was a way to offer an option to delay the start of a subscription? I want to market my subscription as a present, which means the subscription should be available from the time the present is given not from when it is purchased.

                  • Refer a friend - earn free subscription time

                    This would make a great marketing tool for Woocommerce Subscriptions:

                    Existing customer shares referal link via social network or email.
                    For each of his friends who then signs up for a subscription plan, he earns free subscription credits (e.g. one month per referral).

                    This could be implemented by waiving the customers next payment(s). E.g. with Paypal it is possible to suspend a recurring payment for x time via API call (UpdateRecurringPaymentsProfile).

                      • Coupons for Subscriptions with a Free Trial

                        If a subscription has a free trial, you cannot apply a product discount. We use the 3rd party subscription sync plugin to make all subscriptions bill on the 1st of the month (which really should be native functionality). To make that work it adds a free trial equal to the number of days left in the month. But because of this, we cannot offer incentive discounts off the first month, which is a major limitation. Please implement this asap.

                        • Quarterly subscription billing synchronized to a defined month - Woo Commerce Subscriptions

                          We sell a hard copy magazine subscription with a defined quarterly ship cycle. We would like billing for our subscribers to synchronize to a defined day at the start of our defined quarterly billing cycle.

                          Presently the Woo Commerce Subscriptions module only allows billing to synchronize to X day every 3 months. The 3 month duration does not have a defined starting month and is based on when the subscriber signs up and defaults to the nearest month/day in the future. Thus the customer billing is potentially not kept in sync with the quarterly print publication and fufilment dates.

                          We…

                              Many customers are reluctant to sign up for an infinite recurring subscription plan.
                              It would be nice to implement prepaid subscriptions packages, where a user buys e.g. 6 or 12 month of subscription time in advance and after the subscription period has ended his account is suspended until he buys another prepaid package.

                                At the moment, if a customer purchases a subscription on Feb 15, the subscription starts on 1 March (with renewal every 3 months). We want to set standard renewal dates for all subscribers.

                                  • ship on a different schedule than renewal payments and track shipping of each issue

                                    The idea of subscriptions started before computers and continues today as physically shipped products on recurring intervals that are different than payments intervals. For example, a quarterly magazine with an annual renewal. Tracking shipping of this very, very basic functionality is also necessary. At this point we spend days processing our database to determine who gets what issues of our magazine. It is enough to send us searching for a different product every quarter, or at least find a tutorial for woocommerce about this basic, but lacking functionality.

                                    • Early Termination Fee for cancelling a subscription before a certain time

                                      Have subscriptions products have a minimum value of time in which the customer commits to have the subscription (ie signing up for 1 year with monthly payments of $xx). If the customer cancels before the committed time (ie 1 year), then there is an early termination fee applied to their account

                                      • Confirm modal for suspending or cancelling a subscription

                                        When a customer views their active subscriptions in their "My Subscriptions" page, they have the option to cancel any of their subscriptions using the "Cancel" button.

                                        I think their should be a dialogue / modal box or similar that reports "Are you sure you want to cancel this subscription? You can always renew it at a later date by visiting this page and clicking the "Renew" button. YES I want to cancel / NO, I want to keep this subscription".

                                        Basicially, it's too easy for the customer to cancel sub and they have no warning dialogue to ensure they understand…

                                        • Charge full recurring payment at the time of sign up for synchronized subscriptions

                                          When a subscription product is synchronised to a specific day of the week/month/year, no payment is charged at the time a customer signs up for that subscription product, unless:

                                          - the customer signs up on the day the product is sync'd too (e.g. if it's sync'd to the sync'd to the first of the month, and the customer is signing up on the first of the month)
                                          - the first payment is prorated so a portion of the full payment is charged
                                          - it has a sign-up fee, which is separate to the recurring payment

                                          However, we've had a number…
