WooCommerce Payments: Subscriptions

WooCommerce Payments supports selling subscription products. Unlike other payment gateways, which require the use of the Subscriptions extension, WooCommerce Payments offers built-in subscriptions functionality that can be used without any other plugin.

Our overview document explains the requirements you must meet to use subscriptions, how to set up subscription products, and other such basics.

Also note that many extensions which are intended to work with Subscriptions will also work with the WooCommerce Payments subscriptions functionality.
