YITH WooCommerce Subscription


YITH WooCommerce Subscription allows you to make your products be accessible by your users as subscriptions, so make them accessible for a scheduled time (months or days) in exchange for a monthly or daily fee. Create, then, your subscriptions for reviews, videos, learning courses, podcasts, hosting and whatever you might wish to offer to your customers in instalments. This will ensure you constant and scheduled income to your site and much more control on your sales volume.

Features of YITH WooCommerce Subscription:

  • It allows you to create unlimited subscription plans for simple virtual downloadable products of your WooCommerce shop
  • Set the type of renewal for each subscribable WooCommerce product, either monthly or daily
  • Customers can stop subscriptions from their PayPal account

Is it compatible with all WordPress themes?

Compatibility with all themes is impossible, because they are too many, but generally if themes are developed according to WordPress and WooCommerce guidelines, YITH plugins are compatible with them.
Yet, we can grant compatibility with themes developed by YITH, because they are constantly updated and tested with our plugins. Sometimes, especially when new versions are released, it might only require some time for them to be all updated, but you can be sure that they will be tested and will be working in a few days.

Very easy to install and use.. I think I am going to upgrade to paid membership though so payments are taken automatically...

First off, here's who this plugin IS good for: - If you use Paypal as your payment gateway ( ONLY works with paypal, only implied ) - If you don't want/need users managing their subscription from your site However, if you need ANY of the following: - A payment gateway other than Paypal - Users on the frontend managing their subscriptions on your site This plugin is not for you, as I found out after a month later and realizing my subscriptions were not billing and depositing into my stripe account. Some kind criticism for the author: Put up a warning in the dashboard that your product only supports Paypal! However, I digress, I'm probably going to be getting your pro version soon just so that I can integrate it with the WooCommerce Stripe payment gateway. I appreciate your free version of the plugin for its simplicity, just clear up this communication gap on the payment gateway and I think you can avoid a chunk of the negative feedback you're getting on it.

I purchased YITH Subscriptions Premium about a month ago. Yesterday there was an update on the plugin. When I clicked on it to update, the process started and never ended. Now my website doesn't sell anymore. I tried chat for support and they said support is only by support ticket, which they ask 24 hours to answer. While I try to talk to somebody on the support team, my website is giving erros to every purchase someone tries to make, it's been almost a day now and no answer from the YITH team.
