Subscription management without recurring billing

I have customers who like to purchase subscriptions as a gift. Therefore they would go ahead and buy a 3,6 or 12 month subscription.
I\\\’ve seen plenty of extensions that manage subscriptions, but they all require recurring billing. I just want magento to handle the order as a subscription and generate orders each month until the subscription expires.

Anyone know of an extension that manages subscriptions and doesn\\\’t require keeping the credit card on file?

Thanks!
Kevin

Hi,

Check out Recurring Purchase Assistant from AITOC and let your shoppers easily make recurring purchases at your store.

It allows for creating and managing lists of products for recurrent purchases. Shoppers can maintain several lists and share those lists with others. The extension allows for setting up reminders about the upcoming purchases.

All options available to shoppers in the front-end are also available for admin in the back-end. Admin will also be able to set up discounts for specific lists, and shoppers will be able to request a discount based on their purchase history or intention for future purchases.

This is a must-have for those who sell goods that are purchased frequently and on regular basis, such as groceries, office supplies, baby care products, home and garden care products, etc.

Benefits of using Recurring Purchase Assistant in your store:

Increase customer loyalty: The functionality provided by the extension makes it so convenient to buy from you, that your customers won’t be shopping elsewhere;

Motivate your customers for long-term relationship: Apart from the convenient shopping, you will be able to motivate your customers to place more orders by setting up special discounts related to recurrent purchases;

Drive sales: With the reminder functionality your customers won’t forget to make the purchase or add a certain item – most purchases will be placed timely and in full;

Encourage your customers to register at your store: If registering at your store is optional, ability to use the Recurrent Purchase Assistant will be a significant benefit of creating an account at your store;

Better sales forecasts and inventory planning: You will be able to know when your customers plan to make a purchase and what and how much they are planning to buy.

Thank you.

We have the same need - did you ever find a solution that allows for subscription orders without requiring payments at the time of the order?
