Overview

Subscriptions and Recurring Payments by aheadWorks

Important note for users of Subscriptions and Recurring Payments v.1.X: version 1.X and 2.X are not compatible.

The Magento Subscription extension provides you with excellent functionality for subscriptions and recurring payments management. You can sell products on a daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly subscription basis with any duration. Offer a magazine subscription for one year with a weekly periodicity or coffee delivery each three weeks. The Magento Recurring Payments extension allows you to continue to sell these products as a one-off sale or let customers buy a subscription.

With the Subscriptions and Recurring Payments Magento module, you can set up prices for each subscription interval and move customers to specific groups upon subscribing.

As soon as a customer subscribes to any item, he/she pays once for the subscription product. All future payments will be created automatically according to recurring profile settings. You can schedule the start day of payments in the admin panel.

The module supports PayPal and Authorize.Net with its trial periods and initial fees to schedule orders in advance.

Subscription Product

Live Demo:
Backend
'Life is a game' magazine

Offer subscription products


Items with subscription options
Let customers switch over to subscribing for your product instead of making single purchases. Since version 2.x of the module, you can add subscription periods to products of simple, downloadable, configurable, or virtual type.

Subscriptions in My Account
Customers can check the status and periodicity of their subscriptions, get updates, suspend or even cancel the subscription in their account area.

Subscriptions in My Account

Customizable subscription types (periods)


Manage the look of subscription types
Specify the name of a subscription period and define the sequence of its displaying in the frontend. The title will be visible for both administrators and store visitors. It will be displayed as an option with a radio button on a subscription product page.

Subscription Types

Define website where the period will be available
Each subscription type can be applied to one website only.

Period-independent price
You can establish different prices for different subscription periods.

Select the minimal interval (unit) within a subscription period
* day
* week*
* semi-month*
* month
* year*

Define the number of units in one subscription period
For example, if you want to offer coffee delivery every third week, you should configure the following: minimal unit within a period – week; number of units in a period – 3.

Infinite subscription type
The module allows customers to subscribe to any product once and receive the delivery forever. The payments will be created automatically. If you want to limit the duration of subscription period, you can specify the number of occurrences of the subscription type. When the subscription period finishes, a customer should subscribe to it again to get the delivery.

Flexible interface for creating subscriptions


Manage subscription start day
You can define when the payments will start for each subscription type. It can be:
* defined by customer
* moment of purchase
* last day of current month
* exact day of month

Change customer group according to subscription
The Subscriptions and Recurring Payments extension for Magento allows you to move customers to a specific group upon subscribing.

“Only subscription” option
With the help of the module, you can offer products that can’t be purchased as a one-off sale.

Flush all recurring profiles
You can clear all the current subscription data with one simple click. The option is unrecoverable.

Flush All Recurring Profiles

Statistics in the admin area


View subscribers of the required period
As soon as a subscription type is created, a special tab appears in the backend where you can view all subscribers who belong to this period. If no one is subscribed to a subscription type, the section will be empty.

Subscribers of Required Period

Recurring profiles statistics in the admin area
All the payments are processed on the gateway’s side. You can check the following data of the recurring profiles at payment gateway directly in the backend: customer name, date of payments, start date, profile status, etc. Recurring profile can be:
* active
* suspended
* cancelled
* reactivated
* expired

Use payments methods business logic


Main payments methods support
The Subscriptions and Recurring Payments Magento extension supports the following payments methods:
* Authorize.Net ARB
* PayPal Express Checkout
* PayPal Payments Pro (Express Checkout)
* PayPal Payflow Link (Express Checkout)
* PayPal Website Payments Pro (Express Checkout)
* PayPal Website Payments Pro Hosted Solution (Express Checkout)
Each website has its own subscription engine which is configured in main settings.

Trial period
You can adjust one trial period per each subscription type. Offer free trial subscription or define the price different from the ordinary subscription price (these amounts will be summarized at the shopping cart).

Trial Period

Initial Fee*
The module allows you to enable starting fee for any subscription.

* PayPal supports only

About the Developer

This extension was developed by and is supported by aheadWorks

Subscriptions and Recurring Payments by aheadWorks 3.5 5 22 22
Great extension. But needs SagePay support. (But that is probably due to SagePay and payment processing in the UK, not aheadWorks.) June 7, 2012
Today Subscriptions and Recurring Payments v.1.8 is out. The updated version supports eWay Token Payments and ‘Autorize Only’ payment action in Autorize.net. Besides, now there is the ability of reverse conversion from SARP product to standard one. June 7, 2012
I purchased this module a couple of months back. The idea and concept is great, but the limitations kind of hinder the whole module. Being a merchant in the UK, the only way to automate payments from a customer is for the customer to have a PayPal account. There is no way of automatically billing a customers credit card directly which is what a lot of our customers would like. The only automatic credit card billing option available is to have an Authorize.net account. However, this is only available to US and Canada merchants :( So the only way to bill a customers credit card regularly is to take the card details off them using "saved credit card" option and then to manually set up a recurring profile with a payment gateway. If this could be automated for UK merchants, then this would be a great module! May 15, 2012
Today the Subscriptions and Recurring Payments extension has been updated. The new 1.7 version supports virtual products. Moreover, now you can show/hide 'First delivery' calendar on the product page. April 26, 2012
When creating a "Downloadable subscription/recurring payment", the section "Downloadable information" is not present in backend. How can I fix it? Magento version 1.6.1 January 24, 2012
This extension didn't work out of the box and has cost me a lot of money. I have 2 of my own developers available to the support team to try and speed things up, but I have seen no progress for 2 weeks. January 12, 2012
The new 1.6 version of Subscriptions and Recurring Payments is jam-packed with helpful bug fixes for getting the most out of your Magento extension. January 6, 2012
We are having an issue with enterprise. We get this error on the product page when trying to add to cart "Please specify the product's required option(s). " Problem is, the options aren't displaying anywhere on page. December 17, 2011
I have used this extension for a year to charge customers for a free trial. They initially pay for shipping and the second payment is supposed to be in 30 days for the full payment of the product then it expires, or they send it back and we cancel. It will charge for the shipment but does NOT charge in the 30 days for the remainder. I have lost thousands in lost subscription payments trying to get this to work. I have multiple tickets submitted and have even paid for the installation. November 18, 2011
AW does a good job on their modules but really missed their mark on this module. Specifically, it does not support PayPal's IPN recurring subscription option. A MAJORITY of consumers like to use PayPal for subscription services because they know it a couple clicks it can be discontinued. Additionally, this module is missing several administrative options like modifying / editing current subscribers, manually adding subscribers. All in all, it works well assuming you don't need to manage the subscribers and the subscribers don't bounce because they only use PayPal. April 4, 2011

I can use the Magento API to add products to a cart and the like. With this plugin, can I also add subscribable products to a cart and process the order normally? I assume it doesn't add functionality to manage subscriptions for a user via the API.

Answer: 
Yes, you can add subscription products to cart and process your orders normally. The extension just offers a new kind of product which is defined as 'subscription' one.

Answer: 
If I understand you correctly, you are interested in subscriptions paid by someone other than the recipient. This can be achieved with the current version of the module by stating a required shipping address at the checkout. In case there is a misunderstanding and you are looking for a different functionality, please contact our support team either via phone, live chat or email, we would be glad to provide the required information.

Answer: 
Hello!

The Subscriptions And Recurring Payments extension is by default capable of managing regular billing, however, the module does not comprise any dynamic password generation (or similar) functionality.
The options you are looking for can most likely be implemented via customization, please, contact our support team for the details.
Thank you.

We want to be able to sell a downloadable product, that can be subscribed to. We want the users to be able to subscribe to the product, and be able to download updated versions of the product over the course of it's life time.

Will this be possible using your product?

Does your extension give the ability to process more than one recurring payment at a time? The current Magneto recurring products only allows one recurring product to process at a time through the checkout.

As in can you create a subscription product that will happen for say three months and not renew after that? Can a product like this be configured so the customer has no other option but to buy it at it's predefined length?

Hello,

the extension works with the supported payment methods only, which are listed on its product page at our store. They are:

PayPal Website Payments Pro
Authorize.net
ArgoFire Payment
Check / Money order
Saved Credit Card
Zero Check-out
PayPal Website Payments Pro (UK) / Website Payments Pro Payflow Edition
ePay.dk
Cash On Delivery
Bank Transfer

It would be required to customize the module to make it work with other payment solutions.
