Radio buttons instead of Checkboxes for Grouped Product when Multiple Subscriptions are Disabled
When “Allow multiple subscriptions .. to be purchased at the same time” is disabled in the WooCommerce Subscriptions settings, a customer is only able to add one subscription the cart at a time.
But, if subscriptions are part of a Grouped Product, the subscriptions are listed with checkboxes next to them for selection.
This is confusing for the customer, as it gives the impression that the customer can select multiple subscriptions, and yet when they are added to the cart only the last selected item remain in the cart. This is because the cart can only contain one subscription at a time, due to the setting mentioned above.
This is clearly a usability issue, which needs to be improved.
Therefore radio buttons should be displayed instead of checkboxes, which only allow the customer to select one subscription in the Grouped Product.
Please note: This only occurs when the subscription products are set as ‘Sold Individually’, otherwise quantity boxes are displayed beside the subscriptions options instead.
