"Making Subscriptions Incredibly Simple!"

What do you like best?

WooCommerce Subscriptions makes it easy to take recurring payments from clients, or set up subscriptions so that your customers can have access to specified downloadable content from your website, based on the status of their subscription.

I like that I don't have to send out manual invoices to my clients with QuickBooks, as this introduces the possibility of late payments, customer confusion, and other variables that I would rather not deal with in my business.

What do you dislike?

Some of the additional features, like integrating Quickbooks Intuit Payment Gateway has had a couple of quirks since setup, requiring contact with the WooCommerce support team, but after working out the initial kinks, it is now working well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want to automate the recurring payments of your customers, WooCommerce is not only a great product for the job - it also integrates well with other WooCommerce extensions that can make your workflow even easier. Taking automated payments rather than sending out manual invoices is my preferred way of doing business with my recurring billing clients.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This software allows me to take recurring payments for my hosting clients. It makes it easier to collect payments from my clients than it would be to send out a manual invoice to each one of them every month. It's also easier for the clients, as they don't have to remember to send a payment to me - they can simply wait for their chosen payment method to automatically draft each month, and there's nothing for them to do.

"Woo Commerce Subscriptions - great way to manage your e-commerce website"

What do you like best?

I use Woo Commerce for a variety of WordPress e-commerce websites. For some websites I recommended the owner to use Woo Commerce Subscriptions. These are plugins and services that improve your website shopping management and visitor experience.

What do you dislike?

There are not plugins for anything you need, sometimes you need to write code or adapt existing code.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You can start with some free tools, but if you want constant technical support and updates, Woo Commerce subscription can help you by saving time and not having to deal with complex situations.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Integrating shopping cart in WordPress, adding subscription tools like inventory, invoices & shipping list, and more. There are multiple templates and design tools available, including Woo Commerce Store Front suite.

"Flexible subscription product management for WooCommerce"

What do you like best?

If you need to manage a subscription product in your WooCommerce store, Subscriptions is the best plugin available to make that possible! Monthly subscription services are a breeze, but you're not locked into charging monthly fees - you can set up the schedule that makes sense for your business. It works seamlessly with most well-written WooCommerce themes. And if you want to charge a subscription fee for access to a portion of your website, you can pair this with WooCommerce Memberships and get rolling in no time!

What do you dislike?

There's a reason we've chosen this plugin for multiple sites now - there isn't anything to dislike!

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are other, cheaper plugins out there... and they are cheaper in EVERY way, including functionality and support. Don't waste your time. This plugin is available from the source (WooThemes) for a reason - it's been vetted and reviewed for compatibility, and will be updated alongside the cadence of WooCommerce releases.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed to sell subscriptions, but wanted to do it a little differently: the subscription entitled you to your monthly fee in store credit (ensuring repeat business), 20% off everything in our store, granted free shipping for the month and gave you superpowers. Subscriptions handled the glue to make all but the superpowers reality. We paired it with Smart Coupons, Dynamic Pricing and Advanced Free Shipping to make all of this work. Subscriptions have been an excellent added revenue channel for our business, converting our most loyal supporters into a recurring revenue stream, the holy grail of any business!

"Gone are the days of paying for expensive front end development!"

What do you like best?

The ease of implementation of add-ons into the woocommerce product. I've been able to expand the already robust woocommerce product into an extremely agile product. The add-ons have helped me tackle some ideas I didn't think were possible basically out of the box.

What do you dislike?

I've had a few issues with the woocommerce subscriptions helper on the back-end of Wordpress, that's about it. Aside from that I get exactly what I pay for.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Again, if you are even a little bit savvy, you can combine this with woocommerce for excellent additional features that may help boost your ROI. I've been using subscription based add-ons for over four years now and they've enabled me to expand my business and increase the options I can provide to my customer base.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was able to solve dynamic pricing, it was something woocommerce didn't necessarily have out of the box. This solution enabled me to scale pricing at certain quantity break points. I use several other add ons.

"One of the must-have extensions for recurring payments"

What do you like best?

It's a really great extension to be used for offering subscription-based products and/or services. It makes WooCommerce users to easily create and manage products that are simple, variable, intangible and even memberships, with free trials or recurring fees. Its administration area is also straight-forward and easy to navigate. I like the feature that it still supports manual renewal payments for those users who don't have cards for the online payment. For developers, the detailed documentation helps a lot in the customization of subscription products and renewal options.

What do you dislike?

The pricing of WooCommerce Subscriptions license that covers only a year of automatic update and customer support, in my humble opinion, is quite expensive, BUT still worth it. I still believe it's the best solution out there in terms of subscription functionality.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Both new online shop owners and seasoned WordPress developers should be using this extension from the very start of the development membership websites, if they really want to have a full-featured subscription management software unlike any other. It's good value for the money.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

WooCommerce Subscriptions is the all-in-one solution I found for my clients' websites offering monthly subscription boxes as their products.

"Very good but pricey and tedious to setup "

What do you like best?

I love the array of options offered, from free trial for your subscriptions to variable lengths of the subscription

What do you dislike?

It was very tedious to set up e.g. even though i input all the keys correctly it kept saying my PayPal APN pin was wrong. Similarly, for the life of my, I couldn't figure out how to set up upgrade/downgrade even though i set up referential payments on my paypal account. I didn't want t o have 200$/month for the plugin and then another 200 to a developer to setup

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Subscriptions. Haven't started using it yet - setup costs seem very high

easily intergrateable within your current wordpress site, easy to manage current customer subscriptions. Can display subscription with woocommerce store.

Bugs out on trial version when trying to purchase multiple subscriptions within one checkout session.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Billing automation.Saving time by not having to manually invoice clients and customers every payment (monthly).

"Confusing Package"

What do you like best?

I like how it separates out new subscriptions from previous subscriptions.

What do you dislike?

When a customer updates their address for their "Subscription" , it does not update the address in the "Order" of their subscription. We use the "Order" form to print the subscription. The data downloaded also comes from the "Order". So, when the address is not updated in the "Order", we have to re-ship a lot of subscriptions and manually update the customer's "Order" information. Not handy at all!

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you monitor newly purchase subscriptions and renewal subscriptions, this software is very hands on. Especially with PayPal. For some reason, PayPal payments do not always update the order status to processing. They require manual payment verification and manual status updates.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We ship out subscriptions to customers 4 times a year. We have not found another software that can manage our subscriptions yet.

"okay solution with terrible support and compatibility reporting"

What do you like best?

It is comparatively straightforward to set up compared to other complex woocommerce extensions

What do you dislike?

Out of date documentation and HORRIBLE support. There is no list of compatibility with other woocommerce extensions and since Woo doesn't required third party providers to provide that info, you can end up purchasing a solution that causes far more problems than it solves.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be sure to ask Woo sales which extensions this is compatible with otherwise you may end up being very sorry.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Providing subscription solution for clients.

"WooCommerce Nailed It!"

What do you like best?

LOVE LOVE LOVE WC Subscriptions. WC Subscriptions and Stripe go hand in hand - to build an amazing power house subscription e-commerce site. Now that 2 subscriptions can be handled simultaneously - in one transaction - the sky is the limit!

What do you dislike?

I wish, and I am sure there will soon be a way, to allow users to split up payments. For example $60/yr split into 3 easy payments.

This was actually a requirement for one of my companies and WC Subscriptions couldn't handle it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Save your clients money - or yourself. Use WC Subscriptions!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use WC Subscriptions for nearly every eCommerce site I create.

What do you dislike?

I don't really have any dislikes at this time. Everything has worked perfectly!

"perfect for the side project"

What do you like best?

WooCommerce and their subscriptions made it easy to set up my store. It allowed for more options than other platforms and more variety. Most other options stopped at 2-3 variants. My products had 5-6 choices and over 25 variants within one of those choices. WooCommerce made this work. Their package made my side project easy to launch.

What do you dislike?

Their self-help was lacking, however you could add more packages on if you want to. Easy to get out of hand with adding more

Recommendations to others considering the product

Spend the extra money.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Setting up an online store to run a small side business. The benefits were allowing me to offer several options to my customers that most other shopping carts limited me to.
