Payment gateways for subscriptions in WooCommerce online store



The most important thing when starting to configure your subscription system in your WooCommerce online store is to choose the appropriate payment gateway, to automate and facilitate the payment process for each subscription and the multiple changes that the user makes.

Automation is essential, since on the contrary you will have to transfer each and every one of the changes in each subscription manually in the payment gateway of your choice. For this reason, you should review all the options that you can integrate and, as far as possible, acquire the one that offers the most automation in your subscription model.

Automated payment gateways for subscriptions

The following payment gateways are prepared to automate recurring payments for you, in addition to being payment gateways reviewed and validated by the WooCommerce team, guaranteeing the correct operation with your website. The only requirement that you must take into account is to have a WooCommerce online store and be sure that you have a suitable SSL certificate .

Basic functions (Suspension, Cancellation and Reactivation)

These cover the most basic functions that you should automate in your online store subscription. Whether you are the administrator or the customer, you must be able to change the status of a subscription directly from your online store, that is, without having to manually make changes in the payment gateway.

Modify the total cost: as an administrator of the online store, you can manually modify the total cost of the next payment that will be charged to each subscriber.

Modify payment dates: as an administrator of the online store you can manually modify the expiration date, the duration of the subscription or the next payment date.

Customer modifies the payment method: the user will be able to modify the payment method configured in the payment gateway. You can also change the payment method when a card is about to expire or the renewal payment is unsuccessful.
