I'm looking at a subscription business and wondering what options are out there.
Ideally what I'd like is:
- to sell items on subscription basis (weekly/monthly/etc)
- prior to the 'forthcoming shipment' an email sent to confirm address (and create excitement)
- upon 'set date' (say start of month), forthcoming shipments are turned into new orders ... automatic or pooled for batch processing
I found http://www.subscribepro.com/ as an option which may or may not suffice but am wanting to know if there are more options out there.
Take a look at our Subscriptions and Recurring Payments Magento extension.
It allows you to:
- Create subscription products and sell them on recurring basis;
- Automatically send emails to customers about upcoming payments, subscription period expiration;
- Provide recurring billings for simple, downloadable, configurable, or virtual product types;
- Set subscription periods, segment subscribers, track subscriptions in the backend, and so on.
