Using WooCommerce Subscriptions
In another treat you wrote:
“Also there’s another workaround if you have WooCommerce subscription extension – if you link subscription product with a course it’s possible to check it’s expiration date with a simple code snippet and unsubscribe user if subscription is over.”
There are a few questions, regarding the subscription plugin:
1. I have installed the subscription option and want to use it for the single courses, as the plans (multiple courses) are now working ok.
For this to be similar to the plans, I would configure the ‘single-course’ Simple Subscription as a yearly payment, with only one payment and with a one year (12 month) duration. Is that correct?
It would look like this:
Subscription Price: $x per YEAR for 12 MONTHS.
I want to do it in a way that the user does not see much difference in buying a single course or a plan, which is set to one year duration. Both have a one time payment and have a limited duration of one year.
Please let me know, if my above configuration will work, for the single courses (with subscription) be the same as the Plan (normal enrollment).
2. Can I reconfigure this payment options to courses and products, with students already enrolled, without affecting the students in progress in these courses?
3. I’m also considering accepting monthly payments, as many students usually don’t have the credit balance to pay the course in full.
If I accept monthly payments: Can the student cancel any time? Meaning he could do the entire course in one month, cancel after that, not paying the remaining balance?
If the students cancel, are they taken off the course (enrollment cancelled) automatically?
Please let me know. Thanks, Omid.
Great! Thanks for the answer.
Again, adding the subscription plugin (with the code customization) would be the only way to put a time limit for students who are buying courses directly, correct?
I cannot put the single courses into the plan as students might pick more than one.
How would I get this code customization? It seems to be the way to go.
Ok, just to be sure, before we make any code changes:
After the code fix, every user can be in several courses, each one with its own subscription, correct? The plans continue working as before (one plan at the time), correct?
My final result should look something like this:
Course A (subscription: date x to date y)
Course B (subscription: date x to date y)
Course A (subscription A: date x to date y)
Plan Z (plan Z: date x to date y)
Meaning, at the end, a student can buy any combination of single course, each with its own subscription and continues to be able to buy one plan (one at the time), which has also its time limit.
Is this all correct? If so, that would be a great relief and I can finally see a solution to limiting course and plan duration, without limiting what combination of courses they will buy.
Yes, I have created two sets of courses. One, to be sold as a single course (in Premium mode) and another (in Free mode) within a paid plan. I’ll send you the a temporary WP access. I hope that this will work out.
