Recurring subscriptions on your WooCommerce store: Over the last few years, it’s become one of the most popular ways to run an online store. The more flexibility your store has and the more options you have for your customers, the more successful you will be.
The flexibility of the WooCommerce extension is amazing and the fact that it works with so many other variables of the online store makes it a favorite.
But there are so many other tools out there to take you beyond what the extension itself provides.
Extending WooCommerce Subscriptions
Here are a few posts on our site that introduce you to plugins that bring even more power to your subscription site.
How to Give Customers More Access to Their Subscriptions in WooCommerce
The Toolbox for WooCommerce Subscriptions plugin is a must-have. It offers a range of new actions that give customers more control over their site. These include shipping now and skipping the next shipment. Changing both the next payment date and the payment frequency.
You can edit their existing subscription, add new products to it, and edit product quantities in their subscription as well. You can read the full post here.
How to Customize Your Subscription Renewal Dates on WooCommerce
With the subscription extension, you can select from a list of specific schedules: monthly, weekly, etc. But often there are times when what you need isn’t what is offered. The WooCommerce Subscriptions Schedule plugin gives store owners the ability to set up a specific schedule for any product subscriptions. You can read the full post here.
Let Your WooCommerce Customers Choose Their Own Subscription Price
When it comes to subscriptions for memberships or groups that you may offer teaching or consulting for, there may come a time that you would rather let them choose their price. The Name Your Price extension works seamlessly to give you the ability to use this alternative pricing model. You can read the full post here.
Let Your Subscribers Gift a Subscription
Allow subscribers to gift a subscription to a friend, relative or colleague. It allows both the person who purchased it and the recipient to share the subscription for the duration of it. You can see our post here.
Offer Downloads to Subscribers on Your WooCommerce Store
What if you had some downloads that you wanted to offer to anyone who buys a subscription on your WooCommerce-run site? These could be special offers, something free, or downloads you are already selling on your store.
The WooCommerce Subscription Downloads extension gives you the power to do this. It doesn’t make your downloads only available to subscribers. You are also able to see them as individual products on your online store. You can read the full post here.
How to Add Subscription Plans to Your Existing WooCommerce Products
If you are looking for a way to create recurring revenue but would like to offer customers the chance to subscribe optionally to your products, this extension makes it easy. It makes sense with products that customers may want or need to buy frequently.
The All Products for WooCommerce Subscriptions extension gives your customers the ability to optionally subscribe to the product they are interested in, at the moment of interest or at the purchase of the product. Learn more about this plugin on our post.
How to Sell Software Licenses with WooCommerce
If you are selling software licenses, you likely will need the Software Add-On so you can mange them and create keys when selling them. Likely, if you do, you will also be offering subscriptions with those licenses. This plugin works perfectly with the Subscription extension. You can read the full post here.
Building a Membership Site with WooCommerce
The Membership extension for WooCommerce is a powerful way to build a membership site on top of your online store. The best feature is the seamless integration it has with both WooCommerce and the Subscription extension.
It’s a great way to give your members special access to your store’s products, as well as products exclusive to them. You can read the full post here.
A lot of WooCommerce plugins and extensions not mentioned here also work seamlessly with the subscription extension. We hope to post about many of them in the future.
