Do you have a membership based offer? Do you face issues in setting up charging rules for the offer.
WooCommerce Subscriptions by WooThemes can help you by adding a new payment method to your Woo store. Granted that it is a paid extension, but it is money well-spent. The plugin greatly streamlines the process of setting up and managing a WooCommerce subscription offer.
In this tutorial, I will be using YITH WooCommerce Subscription plugin.
- Make sure you have the WooCommerce plugin installed and activated. For Woocommerce installation, you can visit Install And Setup A WooCommerce Store.
- Download YITH WooCommerce Subscription. Go to Plugins >> Add New then search YITH plugin. Install and activate it.
Configure Simple Woocommerce Subscription
Before utilizing YITH WooCommerce Subscription, make sure that the option Enable Subscription has been activated in YIT >> Plugins >> Subscription.
Select the product that you need to associate with the subscription and in its editing page, check the option Subscription.
You can set the cost for the subscription plan, adjust the frequency for payment and the price range of the subscription.
The price of the subscription needs to set as follows: Users are required to pay a fixed amount (Regular Price) each day/month for the number of days/months you set for the subscription.
The field Max Length is optional. Leave it empty for a perpetual subscription.
I strongly suggest that you enable the option Sold Individually accessible in product edit page, as it would make no sense for the same user to buy the same subscription plan twice.
Now you can see how the customer will see the product.
This is the cart page.
After clicking Proceed to Checkout button, you can see the checkout page.
You have created a sample subscription that charges the user $30, every 30 days.
The subscription officially begins when the order is submitted and authenticated. Installments could also be setup at WooCommerce > Settings.
Among all payment methods accessible, PayPal is the single one that could be configured to collect recurring subscription fees automatically until subscription expires or is cancelled. In the case of funds in the concerned PayPal account not enough for the subscription, the subscription will be automatically cancelled by the system.
On the off chance that you set some other payment method, it will be up to the users to remember the recurrent payment due date and send the amount to the website in order to continue the subscription.
List of Subscriptions
You can easily find all subscribers and subscriptions. Just go to YITH Plugin >> Subscription >> Subscriptions.
If you want to cancel subscription for some reason you just have to select the
subscription and click on “Delete” option.
