More Billing Period Options for Subscriptions – Quarterly & Half Yearly

We’d love it if Woo just added twice-yearly and 4-times yearly (quarterly) and even multi-year (once every 2 years) billing options for subscriptions so we can offer a discount to folks willing to pay in larger chunks.

    These period options have always been possible. 🙂

    For twice-yearly, set the recurring price to be renew every 6th month, e.g. https://cl.ly/0U0a0Z3m0806

    For quarterly/4-times yearly, set the price to be every 3rd month, e.g. https://cl.ly/0R3Q301v280V

    To offer the discount for longer billing periods, you can use Variable Subscriptions: https://docs.woocommerce.com/document/subscriptions/faq/#section-12

    Brent you are correct that they are possible, however the programming team at Prospress didn.t think this all the way through, because the payments aren’t synced on a quarterly schedule following the calendar year. They start renewing the next month, and therefore customer’s payments are not in sync with the quarterly delivery of products.

    I believe it is a flaw in the logic of the implementation. More of a bug rather than a feature request and should be fixed ASAP.
