YITH WooCommerce Subscription

This plugin is 100% compatible with YITH WooCommerce Subscription and YITH WooCommerce Membership.
By using the three plugins together you could sell subscription plans in your e-commerce, offering to your users the possibility to renew their subscription through Stripe services.

When using YITH Stripe and Subscription together, you can choose which renewal procedure to use, whether letting Stripe entirely handling the renewal orders or YITH Subscription plugin (this grants more flexibility).

First of all, make sure that both the plugins are installed and activated from the Plugins page.

Then, go to YITH > Stripe and scroll down until you see the Subscriptions section.

Here you can pick one of the following renew modes:

  • Stripe Classic: once the subscription is created, the automatic renewals are entirely handled by Stripe and consequently there’s no way to change either the renewal date nor the subscription amount.
  • YWSBS Renews: for every subscription renewal order, it’s YITH Subscription plugin that handles the details, and connects with Stripe only for the charge. We recommend using this mode, as it grants more flexibility with the renewals details, such as the due date and the amount.

Please note: if you want to use the YITH WooCommerce Stripe plugin in combination with the YITH WooCommerce Subscription plugin, you can only choose between Standard or Elements checkout.

Standard method

By enabling “When renew fails, try again with other cards” you will allow the plugin to try and process the renewal by using other cards. If a customer has added 3 cards to his account for example, the plugin will try all 3 of them.

renew try again

For each payment attempt, the plugin will try to renew with any card registered to the customers account. If you do not enable this option, the plugin will only process payments with the default card.

Renewal orders created with YITH Subscriptions are usually considered merchant-initiated payments and marked as off-session and so, as a general rule, they are exempt from double-factor authentication, but please, read more about the SCA regulation and recurring payments here.
