Hi

Question about HikaShop Serial/Subscription:

1- Can existing products be converted to subscription based products ?
2- Can we have a cart with one time purchases and some recurring products ? ex: a installation fee + 2 reccuring monthly products ?
3- Recurring subscriptions are, i presume, CRON based for their trigger ? Does this push new orders to PayPal or does it setup reccuring payments with PayPal ?

Thanks
Danny

Hello,

1 - Yes for sure.
The goal of HikaSerial as an add-on is to perform a link with an HikaShop product in order to perform specific action when the product is bought.
So, it is by design an obligation that you need an HikaShop product. And that product can be create whenever you want.

2 - Yes ; that's something we implemented in the first version of HikaSerial Subscription.
When you have several products, it process the recurring details (period and sum).
If you have non recurring products, they won't be in the recurring value.
If you have recurring products with different period ; the recurring will be disabled.

3 - No they are not using a CRON.
Recurring is based on the payment platform. For Paypal Recurring, they platform will perform the payment notification for each order.
Afterwards, it could be possible than some payment plugin would implement the recurring using a CRON ; like for example "Customer + Card" oriented systems (Authorize.net CIM, MangoPay...)
But HikaSerial Subscription requires a CRON regarding the notification emails.

Excellent, thanks !
I went ahead and purchased it. So far so good :-)
Another question came to be since yesterday
Can a single product have more than one periodicity ?
Ex: 10$/month or 80$/year ?

Hello,

By using variants, sure.
You can have one variant with a $10 price and a monthy recurring.
Plus another variant with a $80 price and a yearly recurring.

On this subject, I have a variation to the above.

I want each product to have a Retail price as well as a Subscription over 12 months as well as Subs over 24 months & another subs over 36 months.

In other word, the buyer can purchase it outright or pay it off over 12, 24 or 36 months.

If it is possible can you point me to documentation that will show me how to do it.

Hello,

You can create three products or use one single product with 3 variants (each variant will have its own subscription relation).
