Change subscriptions delivery period (5 posts)

    I'm considering buying the woocommerce subscriptions. My goal is to have clients sign up for recurring payments in which a product is delivered to them every XX days (and they are charged for that product each time)

    After watching various tutorial videos I'm wondering if it is easy to switch to a non-standard recurring period. For example: 27 days.

    Would this be an easy thing to modify in the php? I'd dig around myself but... I have to purchase it before I can try it.

    Thanks for the help,

    Austin

    It's not easy, especially if you want to use PayPal.

    If you use Stripe as the payment gateway, you can manually change the next payment date (as of version 1.2, soon to be released). But the recurring interval is currently limited to between 1 and 6 days/weeks/months/years.

    If you don't mind me asking, why do you want to bill every 27 days?

    @austinj I noticed in your other thread, you wanted to:

    have products delivered to them on a 4 week basis and have them charged every 4 weeks for those products

    If 27 days was a typo, and you meant 28 days (i.e. 4 weeks) then this is built in to Subscriptions and quite straight-forward to use. :)

    thanks brent - I think 4 weeks could be a good start eventually I would like the client to be able to specify the period but if 4 weeks is simple I think that will meet my needs.

    Is there a way to try out subscriptions (say for a trial period OR using only paypal sandbox payments?) I would like to make sure I can make it work first if possible.

    You'll have to ask one of the WooThemes team about a trial. I don't know of any system in place for that other than purchasing it & asking for a refund if it doesn't fit your needs.
