Additional features for WooCommerce Subscriptions such as Price Updation for Existing Users, Cancel Delay, Auto-Renewal Reminder, etc.
Enhancer for WooCommerce Subscriptions adds new features to WooCommerce Subscriptions such as updating prices for existing users, a cancel delay, preventing cancel before specific days of renewal, auto-renewal reminder, expiry reminders, manual renewal reminder and separate shipping cycle for subscriptions.
Subscription Price for Existing(Old) Subscriptions ensures existing subscribers pay the current subscription price at renewal. If the price has gone up, the increased price offers additional revenue for the site.
The Subscription Cancel Delay feature allows you to customize the date customers may start cancelling their subscriptions once they’ve subscribed. This prevents users from cancelling their subscription just before first renewal to take advantage of subscription pricing.
Auto-Renewal Reminder emails alert users to their subscription renewal due date well in advance, so that customers can ensure their payment method has sufficient funds, leading to more successful subscription renewals.
Given the default behavior of WooCommerce Subscriptions, any price change will appear for new subscription orders. Existing subscribers will continue to pay the previous price until they cancel their subscription or it expires. This feature ensures existing subscribers pay the current subscription price.
Let’s say a customer purchased a subscription for $10 per month. Now, the site admin updates the price to $15 per month for new users. If you choose to have existing subscribers pay the latest price, all the existing subscribers will be notified by email about the price change, which will apply to their next renewal.
In WooCommerce Subscriptions, users can only subscribe to predefined Subscription products. They cannot subscribe to simple and variable products. Because of this limitation, users will have to visit the site every time they need to purchase a simple/variable product. Enhancer for WooCommerce Subscriptions allows your users to subscribe to simple and variable products so that they can receive the product in a fixed interval without having to visit the site.
* In the Single Product Page, before the Add to Cart button, a Subscribe Now checkbox will be visible.
* By, default, if the user completes the purchase, it is a one-time purchase.
* If the user enables the Subscribe Now checkbox, they will have to choose how frequently they want to receive the product.
* Once the user completes the purchase, they will be subscribed to the product and they will be receiving the product regularly.
In WooCommerce Subscriptions, users cannot subscribe to products on cart level. Because of this limitation, users cannot add multiple products to the cart and purchase them as a single subscription. Enhancer for WooCommerce Subscriptions allows your users to add multiple products to their cart and purchase them as a single subscription.
* Users adds products to their cart and in the cart page, a Subscribe checkbox will be visible.
* If they enable the checkbox, they will have to choose how frequently they want to receive the product.
* Once the frequency is chosen and the order is placed, users will keep receiving all the products regularly until they cancel their subscription.
In WooCommerce Subscriptions, users can cancel their subscription whenever they want — even immediately after receiving the order. This can often be a loss for your business because users generally subscribe to a product to get an up-front discount by paying the subscription price compared vs. the one-time purchase price. When the product is due for renewal, they simply cancel the subscription and purchase whenever they need the product again. Using Subscription Cancel Delay feature, you can prevent your users from cancelling their subscription for a fixed duration that you customize.
In WooCommerce Subscriptions, users can cancel their subscription whenever they want. Users can even cancel the subscriptions a few minutes before subscription renewal. This can often be a loss for the site admin and inconvenience because generally, the products would have been shipped/in the process of being shipped.
Preventing users from cancelling their subscriptions during renewals can prevent unwanted inconvenience and losses. Once configured, the users can cancel their subscriptions till the threshold date for cancelling subscriptions. Once the threshold date is reached, the user cannot cancel their subscription during that renewal. The subscription can be cancelled only during the next renewal. The process repeats all over again.
For Automatic Renewals with WooCommerce Subscriptions, the charge is attempted on the due date. If the attempt is successful, the user will be charged and the subscription will be renewed. If not, the subscription charging will be re-attempted.
By default, users are not notified about their renewal. Because of that, some users might forget to add funds to their payment source, and the renewal fails. You can customize the date you send the auto-renewal reminder to improve renewal success.
In WooCommerce Subscriptions, when your users’ limited-duration subscription is about to expire, the user is not notified in advance. Users will be unaware that the subscription has expired or is about to expire. You can customize the date on which you send the auto-renewal reminder to alert customers to the subscription expiry and encourage them to renew it.
Based on the configuration, this email will be sent to the customer regarding their subscription expiry
In WooCommerce Subscriptions, users who subscribe to manually renewing subscriptions will not be notified in advance about their subscription renewal. The users will be notified via email only after the subscription renewal date. This can cause an inconvenience to the users because their subscriptions will be put on hold once the subscription renewal date is reached. The Subscription will become active only after the renewal payment.
If the users had been notified in advanced about their subscription renewal, they can make their renewal payment before renewal date which can prevent the manually renewing subscription from being put on hold for every renewal.
In WooCommerce Subscriptions, if multiple shipping has to be processed for each renewal of the subscription, then admin has to manually track and manually process it. It is not possible to set separate shipping cycle for subscriptions.
Using Separate Shipping Cycle feature, it is possible to set different shipping cycle for subscriptions. Separate shipping cycle can be configured directly for each subscription product. Users will be notified by email when their shipping cycle order is processed.
In WooCommerce Subscriptions, if you want to view how subscription-related emails look like after making changes to the look and feel of the email templates, then you will have to place an actual subscription order or perform the desired subscription related action to view the changes.
Using Preview Subscription Emails feature, you can preview the changes made to the subscription emails instantaneously by just inputting a previously placed subscription order id or/and a subscription id.
Some email templates require either an order id or a subscription id or both.
In WooCommerce Subscriptions, if Trial is configured for a product, then the customers can use the Trial any number of times which will be a loss for the site admin. Hence, by using the Limit Subscription Trial feature, you can restrict the customers to use the Trial of a product only once.
In WooCommerce Subscriptions, if the Subscription purchase is limited to one and if a customer purchases one of the variations of a variable product, then the customer can’t purchase any other variation of the product. Using Limit Subscription in Variant Level feature, you can limit the subscription at a variant level so that customer can purchase other variations as well.
