As an administrator, you have the ability to create products in your store that can be paid for as a subscription service. A membership, for example, can be set up to charge the user on a recurring basis so the user doesn’t have to repurchase that membership when it expires. The user is auto-charged on a monthly (or other frequency) basis.

To set up a product subscription, navigate to Admin Settings > Commerce > Products. From here, click the + Add button at the top of the page. This will create a new product.


Under the ‘Category’ field, if you select either ‘membership’ or ‘donation’ as the product type, 

a new setting appears at the bottom of the page that has a checkbox with the verbiage ‘Is a subscription’.  

Check this box to enable automated recurring payments.

To cancel a subscription, navigate to your profile and on the left side of the page, you will see a link to your Subscriptions. You can manage your subscriptions here.    

Subscriptions Dashboard

To administrate your subscriptions, use the subscriptions dashboard in Admin > Commerce > Subscriptions. This will allow you to cancel subscriptions easily. 

Coupons and Subscriptions

Please note that when a user applies a coupon to a subscription, it will affect only the first charge of that subscription. There is currently no option to apply a discount to every charge on a subscription, but this is a feature that our development team is considering for inclusion. Check back for updates!
