As if we need another reason to require this, I've just looked at using Braintree instead of Stripe for a few reasons: 1. it's pretty much identical in service, 2. the pricing is the same, but 3. they offer $50k/£30k free transactions before they charge, and 4. it integrates PayPal payments at the same time with all the features of Reference Transactions without having to enable it (apparently).
Unfortunately, one of Braintree's requirements for accepting recurring payments is as follows (received via email after signing up):
"Note that we are unable to support the practice of accepting card information prior to providing a user with a free trial. In order to proceed we would need you to remove the free trials completely, or to agree to only accept card information from the customer after the 14 day trial is complete."
@Elliot - I'm going to look into your solution, thank you. It would be great if this were just an on/off option built into core Subscriptions though.Alasdair Page commented
We're also looking for this same functionality. Until it's in core I'd be interested to know if anybody has successfully customised WooCommerce Subscriptions to achieve this please.Alasdair Page supported this idea ·
