recurring billing / subscriptions
It would be so nice to include an extension for recurring or subscription billing. Make sure that we can use it for products and not just membership pages. It would be super duper great if we could add variations and have them added to the monthly bill as well.
WooCommerce Subscriptions have been released today: http://www.woothemes.com/extension/subscriptions/
Does this only work with paypal? Conversion rate on my products is far higher with credit card. Currently I have recurring billing products set up so that people pay the first month's hire fee then I manually set up the recurring billing, but this is painful so it would be great if this plugin could take care of it.
Could you guys team up with Mijireh and do a recurring billing for credit cards?
Wonderful! Thank you so much!
Would be nice for this to be made into something like Premise. That does all the membership and recurring billing/subscriptions. Otherwise w/out this, you almost have to ditch Woocommerce altogether if this is what you need. This has nothing to do w/ spamming, but even woo sells memberships, so should see a legit need that they could create this and use it themselves.
It would be great if some consideration could be given to small scale SaaS offerings with this too.
We're in the early days of something and it would be great if WooCommerce could do all of the subscription/billing heavy lifting and (for now) we manually provide/remove access to the service.
I guess this overlaps with the consideration being given to services sold through WooCommerce as well as subscriptions.
Any chance the upcoming plugin linked below will provide paywall-like functionality along the lines of Suma? From a watch of the video it doesn't look like it integrates payments with user access control so I'm not holding my breath, but perhaps someone knows for sure?
I emailed woocommerce about this and they responded a few days ago:
"I believe that has been submitted to our WC developers for auditing. So shouldn't be long before it is released providing it meets coding standards. Not ETA yet though."
from the video on that WoocommerceSubscriptions site, it seems to be the extension brent.e.shepherd commented in this thread a few weeks ago.
he asked for beta testers.
maybe the extension needs to be tested more!

It appears that it only works with Paypal but it is hard to tell since the site is only a short video
Well that looks like what people are asking for :^)
found this: http://woocommercesubscriptions.com/
This would be huge for us. We need recurring badly.
Hey I was looking over on git hub .. there's a 3rd party guy defo working on this :^)

Need this now. This is causing you to lose business as I'm going to look elsewhere for a theme/framework that can handle recurring fees.

Please add recurring billing for products asap
WooThemes.com uses WooCommerce... and WooThemes.com charges me monthly... therefore, why can't I do the same for my clients? Please release this functionality for us, team!

Hi folks, I am currently developing a very simple subscriptions extension for WooCommerce. If you would like to beta test please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
It is currently a very simple extension, but the code base provides a robust foundation to grow into something which supports most of the use cases outlined here.
Yes. This feature is a must.
Please make it flexible so that the customer can choose intervals for their subscription. Both for physical and digital goods.
