Which add-ons are compatible with subscriptions built-in to WooCommerce Payments?

If you’re using WooCommerce Payments, you have two options to sell subscription products:

These two offerings are both powered by much of the same code. This makes it possible for most extensions that add features to WooCommerce Subscriptions to also add those same features to WooCommerce Payments’ built-in subscriptions.

The following extensions are confirmed to be compatible with WooCommerce Payments:

That said, some other extensions perform a check to see if the WooCommerce Subscriptions plugin is active. Of course, if you’re using the subscriptions functionality built into WooCommerce Payments, the WooCommerce Subscriptions plugin will not be active, and this check will fail. In these cases, the extension may need to be updated to support WooCommerce Payments.

Developer updates

NOTE: This section provides example code intended for use by developers.

If you’ve tested your extension with both WooCommerce Subscriptions and the WooCommerce Payments subscriptions functionality, it can be updated to load when either one is available.

The recommended approach is shown here:

if ( class_exists( 'WC_Subscriptions' ) || class_exists( 'WC_Subscriptions_Core_Plugin' ) ) {
   // Load any subscriptions functionality

If you need to check for a specific version of the subscriptions code:

if ( class_exists( 'WC_Subscriptions_Core_Plugin' ) && version_compare( WC_subscriptions_Core_Plugin::instance()->get_plugin_version(), '3.1.0', '>=' ) ) {
   // Load any subscriptions functionality for version 3.1.0 or later
