Subscription Plugin for WooCommerce is one of the best plugins that can integrate a subscription model eCommerce system into your online WooCommerce store efficiently. With subscriptions, choosing an appropriate payment method is an important decision to consider. The role of a payment gateway in a subscription plugin is inevitable as it authenticates the recurrence transactions carried out in a subscription.
Recurring payments for subscriptions are accepted broadly in two ways:
Most of the subscribers would want the renewals to happen automatically otherwise the subscriber will have to visit the site every recurring period whether it is monthly weekly or yearly to make the respective payment for the subscription to remain active. Any methods used for manual renewals supports suspending, canceling and reactivating subscriptions as well as changing the next recurring amount, payment date and billing schedule.
Once an automatic payment method is configured for subscription, then the successive payments for the recurrences will be taken automatically from the same payment mode unless it is been changed manually by the subscriber or admin at a later time.
Some of the major payment gateways supported by Subscription for WooCommerce plugin are the following:
|Provider||Payment Gateway||Automatic Renewal||Manual Renewal|
|WooCommerce||Paypal Reference (Additional configuration required)||Yes||Yes|
|WooCommerce||WooCommerce PayPal Payments (up to version 1.9.5)||Yes||Yes|

|Angel Eye||PayPal Payments Pro 2.0 (PayFlow)||Yes||Yes|

I have already woocommerce subscriptions plugin in my website, but I want another separate plugin for subscription.
Can we migrate woocommerce subscriptions plugin’s all data to your webtoffee subscription plugin ?
Is that possbile?
February 27, 2023
Thanks for reaching out.
Direct migration from other platforms to ours isn’t possible with our subscription plugin since the two environments have different database key names and several other metadata might have different formats. We do not recommend doing such a migration, especially with live orders. Thanks for understanding.

Hi, can i use the plugin with Redsys payment method
October 11, 2022
Greetings from Webtoffee!
The payment methods that are tested and found as compatible are listed above. We cannot say the same for any other payment methods.
September 7, 2022
For the Mollie payment gateway you usually (only) mention Credit Cards on several pages. Is really just credit card available or also the SEPA Direct Debit method within Mollie (SEPA Direct Debit is supported by Mollie and for Stripe it is apparently possible to use it with your Subscription plugin).
June 22, 2022
STRIPE offers a lot of payment solutions, like Apple Pay, Google Pay, SOFORT, Giropay and so on. Does your Subscription Plugin support all of these payments or only the STRIPE credit card payment?
July 5, 2022
Yes, the plugin supports multiple payment options like Apple Pay, Google Pay, Alipay, SEPA pay, Giropay, WeChat, AfterPay, Sofort, iDEAL, and Stripe checkout.

I want to know if your subscription plugin supports FirstData payment gateway
April 22, 2022
Greetings from WebToffee! As we haven’t tested the plugin with the FirstData payment plugin we cannot confirm the compatibility and in order to process subscription/automatic recurring payments, the payment gateway used should support the feature natively. If the mentioned payment gateway plugin has a recurring payment feature, it is likely to work with our subscription plugin without any issues. Thanks for understanding.
