    Great idea

  2. Aaron Henriques says:

    Excellent idea, more people should get behind this. It’s very common for a rolling 1-month subscription to be more expensive than a minimum 12 month contract for example.

    There is a similar feature request which also requests the ability to add an early termination charge. These two should be combined as they are extremely similar and would go hand in hand.

  3. Gerald says:

    I am quite dumbfounded that this does not exist and the user can cancel at ANY TIME – which subscription in the real world works like this? Not many…

  4. Phil says:

    Yes please, this is a highly desired feature!

  5. Anonymous says:

    I too would also LOVE this feature! An an early termination charge would also be handy

  6. Jan Westerink says:

    Yes please add this option. Do not most subscriptions in the real world have a construct like this? You give the client a good deal because they commit for a certain period. But after that periode you do not want to bother them with administration. You just continue the deal…

  7. [Deleted User] says:

    This is absolutely essential for subscriptions. Please add an option to define a minium period after which the subscription will end, independent of how long before the user has cancelled the subscription.

    Just for tracking purposes as its not visible since when this topic is open. My comment has been added on ***********

  9. Chris K says:

    I agree 100%, this is very standard with subscriptions. Should for sure be added.

  10. KK says:

    03_2019: Please add this feature. In Germany subscriptions that are paid monthly but cannot be cancelled after a minium period of 12 month are absolute standard. We need a feature that allows for setting a minium time before a subscription can be cancelled. Thanks!

  11. Damien says:

    I wont be purchasing this add-on until this essential feature is added.

    I am in high need of this too.. Please fix it 🙂

  13. Meckie 2k16 says:

    05_2019 Has this feature been added yet? I am new to WooCommerce Subscriptions and I am surprised to discover that this is not available.
    I really need this feature.

  14. Metric says:

    Hi, any news on the functionality? it’s very useful.

  15. '-MJ- says:

    07/19 – Is this feature actually implemented? I will buy a 5-sites-license but this is an important requirement. I’m glad to read this here before.

  16. Xentric says:

    Please add this functionality. Term contracts are the standard in our industry and we need a way to manage them automatically.

  17. Anonymous says:

    Yes, please add! This is a core requirement for subscriptions

  18. Rowland says:

    Another vote for this functionality from me. Please 🙂

  19. gray says:

    This is the main reason my membership business clients don’t want to use WooCommerce Subscriptions. Please create this.

    seems that it’s still a missing feature 🙁

    Here in Germany it’s an absolute musthave functionality!
    Doe’s anyone has an workaround yet?

  21. Anthony says:

    We need this too, I don’t understand why it’s not already in the plugin.

  26. Petite Nyasha says:

    Is there no plugin or extension for this really!! ? That’s ridiculous … help!

  27. Ronald says:

    I’ve used this plugin for a while now but only ran into this problem yesterday, but it’s a big downside and therefore a great need.
    Requested 2 years ago already and still no action 🙁

  28. Kristoffer says:

    Anyone who has found a solution?

  29. Ash Glover says:

    Yes, this is a vital requirement!

  30. Anonymous says:

    I agree, this shouldn’t be too hard to implement and it’s definitely a must have for me (and probably many others)

  31. Josh Chretien says:

    is there an update to this? we need this functionality! especially when offering a discount, for example, if someone subscribes to a product delivery. I’m sick of seeing people take advantage of a subscription discount setup and then cancelling right after submitting the order and receiving the discount.

  32. Killerwork says:

    We also need this functionality…

    Did anyone find a solution to this? I found this plugin but can’t seem to find any reviews:

  34. Nick says:

    Here are a couple of workarounds which might help:

  35. Anonymous says:

    This should be a dead giveaway. How can you offer a subscription plugin that doesn’t even provide a minimum term contract even though it is such a ubiquitous contract condition in many many industries?

  36. Bec says:

    This is vital. Is there any update on this and if it is going to be implemented it was originally posted in 2017 🙁

  37. Kai says:

    ‘This one is absolutely vital. This idea has >250 votes and had been first posted back in 2017. I don’t understand why it is not yet part of WooCommerce subscriptions nor why Automattic doesn’t even reply to ths long list of questions on “when is this going to be delivered”…

    @Automattic: What are your plans and timelines for this?

  38. WPExtend says:

    There’s a new mini-extension for WooCommerce Subscriptions that does exactly that: Setting minimum periods (or payment terms if you will) on a storewide or per-product basis.

    It’s available at

  39. Anonymous says:

    It would be absolutely great to have this in subscriptions itself, instead of having to get an extra plugin for it.

    We have a lot of rentals that have a minimum period of 6 months, after which people can either just continue the subscription or cancel. What happens now is that people sometimes cancel their subscription prematurely, resulting in a mess.

    Would be great to have this.

    Please implement this basic feature into the plugin

  41. Lori says:

    Commitment term are pretty standard on most subscription box platforms, would love to see it supported here.

  42. Mcark thony says:

    Thanks for sharing.

  43. Anthony Reyes says:

    A grace period would be good for subscribers.
