Subscriptions and Recurring Payments 1.0 released!

subscription_box

The Subscriptions and Recurring Payments extension by aheadWorks extends Magento abilities further – now you are able to sell accept recurring payments and sell subscription products! Ever wished to have memberships on your site? No problems – this extension can handle that. Dreamed about having subscriptions for your physical products? This can be done as well!

A host of advanced features makes Subscriptions and Recurring Payments an ideal tool for those who deal with subscription products and want to manage them efficiently and in no time. If you sell products that are usually bought with a certain periodicity (bottled water, pills, detergent, pet food), the Subscriptions and Recurring Payments extension is exactly what you need. You don’t loose anything – simple products still can be sold as usual products with ability to subscribe. But once subscribed, customers become your regular consumers – what can be better?!

In Subscriptions and Recurring Payments the following features have been implemented:

  • Adds new product type – subscriptions
  • Ability to convert simple products to subscriptions in just 2 clicks
  • Simple product can be sold as simple or with subscription option at the same time
  • Delivery support with notice to postman
  • Flexible interface for creating subscriptions periods
  • Customizable subscription periods – any day of week can be excluded
  • Delivery pre-charge offset – does not allow to request delivery immediately on the purchase day
  • Alerts on different types of subscription events
  • Per-product period types customization
  • Configurable shipping per product
  • Easy-to-use customizable customer interface
  • Subscriptions list and statistics in the admin area
  • Subscribers listing in the admin area
  • Subscriptions statistics and management in the customer area
  • Optional first period price, can be different from the normal price
  • Membership support – moving customer to a specific group on subscription or unsubscription
  • Configurable guest checkout
  • Payment methods:
    • ePay
    • Check
    • Money order
    • Saved CC
    • Zero checkout
  • Integrated into standard Magento template – looks and acts like a native code

Well done! I'm excited to see this extension in action. I'm trying to figure out now IF it works with downloadable products as well (if not - it needs to!). :) For payment gateways, I will be unable to utilize this product until the following gateways are working: 1) Authorize.net 2) PayPal Great job - looking forward to seeing these items added to the extension!

I vote for recurring billing support for Authorize.net; I cannot purchase your product without it.

Loving the feature list but most definitely need authorize.net. Bluepay (.com) is also a good one that I know a lot of people use and request.

Another vote for authorize.net! We want to show this to our clients but they all use authorize.net.

If you add Paypal Pro (Payflow) then I'll definately buy this extension. Sounds great but needs to work with Paypal Pro. Fingers crossed this will be added soon.

Looks promising. We have enabled several payment methods, some supported by this extension and some not. What will happen at checkout? Will the non-supported payment methods be disabled, or will the customer get an error message if they try a non-supported method? Or will it crash.. ;)

Nice. But why wont it just work with the payment methods we already use in Magento? Such as Sagepay or invoicing. Do you need to re-program them to work with this extension? Also does it support customers being able to postpone a shipment (due to going on vacation or any other reason)?

A new release with new payment gateways is on the way, please expect it in about a week. @Stian it would allow you to process the order as usually, but further automatic billing won't work. @Johan Yes, we need to add code for automatic orders processor for each payment gateway. It supports delivery date and notice. If for any reason the delivery date must be changed - there is ability to cancel the subscription and create a new one with the correct date. Thank you.

You said in comment #6 that it works with downloadable products, but I can't see how, is there any tutorial or documentation on that?
