Choosing a subscription plan.

Custom Subscription Plans

↑ Back to top

By default, all supported products in the Catalog inherit the global subscription plans. To define Custom Subscription Plans for a specific product, or make it available for one-time purchase only, it is necessary to override the global subscription plans at product level.

To make a product available for one-time purchase only:

  1. Edit the product.
  2. Navigate to Product Data > Subscriptions.
  3. Select Sell one-time only in the Sell on Subscription? dropdown.
  4. Save.

  3. Select Add custom subscription plans in the Sell on Subscription? dropdown.
  4. Click Add Plan to add a subscription plan. Every plan you add here will apply only to the specific product.
  5. Optional: Un-check One-time purchase to prevent customers from purchasing the product one time. Note that if you only add a single subscription plan and disable One-time purchase, customers will not be offered any options above the add-to-cart button.
  6. Optional: Enter a custom Prompt text — this is the text displayed above the available purchase plans on the product page.
  7. Save.
Adding Custom Subscription Plans

Subscription Discounts

You can optionally offer a discounted price that’s unique to each subscription plan. This is a great way to provide incentives for subscribing.

To offer subscription discounts, locate the Price option and select either Inherit from product or Override product:

  • Inherit from product allows you to enter a discounted amount as a percentage (without the % symbol) — for example, to offer a price discounted by 10%, enter 10.
  • Override product allows you to override the default Regular Price and Sale Price of the product.

Adding Products to Subscriptions

This feature requires WooCommerce Subscriptions 2.3+.

All Products For WooCommerce Subscriptions makes it possible to add products to existing subscriptions.

Limitations

↑ Back to top

Sign-Up Fees and Free Trials

↑ Back to top

The subscription plans created with All Products For Subscriptions do not support Sign-Up Fees or Free Trials.

Adding prorated products/carts to subscriptions

↑ Back to top

It is not possible to add a prorated and synchronized product/cart to an existing subscription.

Adding products to manually created subscriptions

↑ Back to top

When a product (with or without subscription plans) is manually added to a subscription (via the WordPress Dashboard, or via the REST API), renewals will work without any issues.

However re-subscribing will not be possible if:

  • the manually-added product does not have any subscription plans; or
  • the manually-added product has subscription plans but the billing schedule of the subscription does not match with the billing schedule of at least one subscription plan.

Switching subscription plans

↑ Back to top

WooCommerce Subscriptions allows customers to modify the configuration or plan of each individual product contained in an existing subscription. All Products for Subscriptions supports this feature both for global plans and custom product plans.

Plan switching requires WooCommerce Subscriptions 2.3+.

Switching Product Bundles and Composite Products

↑ Back to top

Switching for Product Bundles and Composite Products is supported. However, only configuration/content changes are possible for these product types. It is not possible to choose a different plan while upgrading/downgrading a Bundle or Composite in an existing subscription.

The Prorate Recurring Payment option is not supported for upgrading/downgrading Product Bundles or Composite Products. Additionally, switching is not supported when Length Proration is disabled and the currently active subscription has a fixed length.

Content switching requires WooCommerce Subscriptions 2.3+.

Shipping fees not recalculated when adding a Product to an existing subscription

↑ Back to top

When All Products For Subscriptions is used to add a product to an existing Subscription, shipping costs are not updated and the customer is not prompted to choose a new shipping method. This is a WooCommerce Subscriptions limitation. WooCommerce Subscriptions does not support shipping cost updates when making changes to Subscriptions that include multiple line items.

Adding Subscription Plans to individual variations

↑ Back to top

All subscription plans added to a Variable product are automatically inherited by its Variations. Currently, it is not possible to add subscription plans at Variation level. However, the plugin provides some flexibility for customizing this behavior using the wcsatt_product_subscription_scheme filter. For assistance with this, please consider hiring a qualified WordPress/WooCommerce Developer. We highly recommend Codeable.

Cart and Checkout Blocks compatibility

↑ Back to top

When using the new Cart block included in WooCommerce Blocks:

  • It is not possible to change the selected subscription plan for individual items in the cart page.
  • It is not possible to add cart contents to existing subscriptions.
