    We have both recurring monthly and annual packages set up for a directory and but the client is offering a 100% discount code on the annual packages to get the word out about the directory. That being said, when they use the promo code, it is not requiring them to enter the credit card information so the package will not auto renew when it expires. It basically says they will get charged $0 forever on the checkout page.

    I see what you mean, from your screenshots, thanks for those.

    This is usually accomplished with a trial period in the package settings.

    Which gateway are you wanting to use?

    Please include WP Admin credentials if we should check the settings.

    I updated the plugin today on a staging site and now we get a an error after I try to submit the listing and then after retrying to submit it, I no longer get taken to the checkout page, it’s like the checkout function is now removed.

    Kindly check your browser’s console while submitting the listing and let me know if you see any errors listed.

    I’ve updated the invoicing plugin and everything works. Always remember to keep your plugins updated.

    Well I just updated everything and now it seems we are back to the main issue that I opened the ticket for where it does not ask for a credit card when a promo code is used.

    Hi Stacey.

    Payment gateways such as Stripe and PayPal require you to either offer a free trial or charge the user a minimum amount (0.5 USD or equivalent) for each period. We are actively working on how to make subscriptions with a 100% discount on the first period work the same as offering a free trial, but this involves re-writing quite a large amount of code.

    This is something that we hope to fix in the next update, but for now, I would suggest that you offer a free trial, as you wait on us to address the issue.

    Hello, I was wondering if there was an update on this and if the fix was applied in the newest update? If not, is there a way you could update this ticket and let me know when it is all good to go?

    Thank you!
