I would like to see recurring orders, so we could sell products based on a monthly/weekly/annual fee. For example, selling a monthly magazine which is charged every first day of the month. Or a service that has a recurring charge every 12 months. These are just examples, but I think everyone is aware of what these are.

This is mentioned in the thread regarding digital products, but I think this is not only important for digital products. There are many physical delivery products sold as recurring orders too.

When a product is set as "recurring", it might have the following options:

- Price that is charged
- How often the price is charged (daily, weekly, monthly, annually...?)
- On what day the price is charged (for example 7 days from the first order, 1st day of the month, last day of the month...)
- How many times the money is charged (12 times, 52 times, unlimited times, etc...)
- Cancellation policy, charging stops... (when order canceled; 12 months after the first charge if canceled during those 12 months; next month after canceling...)

At least Stripe and Paypal support this, and many others. I use this in some online stores and it works pretty well.

This is a great idea and it is something we're looking at.

At the moment we're working on Joomla Custom Fields. After that we're going to look at bringing digital goods subscriptions to Pro2Store, and perhaps the functionality you suggest could be part of that.

We're still discussing the details but I will keep the community up-to-date as we make these decisions.

Yes I agree, this is not essential to the core so better get the basic functionalities in order first. Just something to consider later, maybe even as a separate plugin.

It is possible to do this as "Modification / variant of the Store for the sale of digital goods".
In this case, the "Type of delivery" of the product will be absent, instead - a Letter with a link to download the product.

Igor I didn't understand what you mean. This feature request doesn't really have much to do with delivery or lack of it.

I mean, this functionality is often found when selling information services or digital products.

Yes, that is true. I would like it to be available as a payment method for everything so it could be used to sell both digital and physical products. For example, I am currently selling replacement filters as recurring orders, and it would be great to build a new storefront using Pro2Store. In another store we sell masks and other protective gear as recurring orders, so yes, it is quite useful in many cases.

I was just looking at this forum to check if selling digital products is already suggested and read that you are working on it.
Great! Can't wait to get rid of what I am using now. Thank you!
