I have three main issues/questions that are vital to our business model and need some assistance. We will be offering a physical subscription plan, 1 month, 3 months, and 6 months in which we will be sending out physical media each month.
1. For this multiple billing period subscription, I believe variable pricing is best, however, I cannot link a button from another page directly to each variable product. Do I need to use grouped products instead?
2. I need to gather custom information pertaining to just this product. We will also be selling individual items when 1.5 is released but do not require the additional info. So, I do not want to include the fields in the cart at checkout. Such information will be a date picker (birthday) and name fields.
3. As for being a physical subscription, for 3 Month - 6 Month Subscribers I need to be able to see their active subscriptions under the orders page each month. Simply putting a sign-up fee and $0 recurring payment, as stated in the documentation, is horrible and the text "Free! every 6 months and a $3.00 sign-up fee" confuses people. The reason I need it in the orders page, is because we will be using the shipping tracking extension as well and need to send that information out to subscribers each month. On a side note, we will be using Stripe as the payment gateway.
