Why is there a Subscriptions item in my WooCommerce menu?

Starting with WooCommerce 6.6, a Subscriptions item in the menu offers eligible merchants a chance to use the built-in subscriptions functionality of WooCommerce Payments.

Eligibility criteria

In order to see the Subscriptions menu item suggestion, the site must:

  • Allow tracking under WooCommerce > Settings > Advanced > WooCommerce.com.
  • Be based in the U.S.
  • Be at least 6 months old.
  • Have at least 1 order in the last 30 days.
  • Not have any of the following plugins installed:
    • WooCommerce Subscriptions
    • WooCommerce Payments
    • Sumo Subscriptions
    • YITH Subscriptions
    • Subscripto
    • Subscriptions For WooCommerce

Remove the Subscriptions menu item

↑ Back to top

To remove the Subscriptions item from the WooCommerce menu, click the No Thanks button and the Subscriptions item will disappear.

To programmatically remove the item (if, for example, you are a hosting provider or developer), create an option named woocommerce-wcpay-subscriptions_dismissed and set it to yes. This will prevent the Subscriptions item from displaying even for qualifying merchants.

Returning the Subscriptions menu item

↑ Back to top

There is no real reason to bring the Subscriptions menu item back after dismissing it, since you can still get started at any time by simply installing WooCommerce Payments and using the built-in subscriptions features.

However, if you need to bring the Subscriptions menu item back after dismissing it, you can delete the woocommerce-wcpay-subscriptions_dismissed option in your database. This will restore the menu item provided you meet the criteria above.
