You can even schedule price for a date range by clicking the option Schedule.


Subscription Expire After – You can set when the subscription will expire. You have the following options:-


  • If you select Day in No 3 above – 1 day to 90 days
  • If you select Week in No 3 above – 1 week to 52 weeks
  • If you select Month in No 3 above – 1 month to 24 months
  • If you select Year in No 3 above – 1 year to 5 years


Sign up Fee


6. You can charge a sign up fee for availing your subscription. It is optional. You can also leave it blank.


This sign-up fee is in addition to any recurring amount that you have set for the subscription product.


For Example – If you create a subscription product for ₹70 per month with a ₹100 sign-up fee, the subscription’s initial total during checkout will be ₹170. And from the second month the subscription charge will be ₹70 per month.


However, when a subscription has a sign-up fee and a free trial, only the sign-up fee is charged at the beginning of the subscription period.


If there is no free trial period set on the subscription product with a sign-up fee, the price charged = sign-up fee + recurring first month’s total.


Free Trial


This period is added to any length you set for the subscription.


For example – if you create a subscription of ₹50 per month for 6 months with a 1-month free trial period, the subscription will expire after 7 months.
