Hi,

Does anyone know of a automatic magazine subscription service extension?

Or is there a way to automatically charge the customer before the order is shipped?

Kind Regards,
Gobbo

If you want to sign up with Stripe, my Stripe Payment Gateway supports their subscription functionality, so you could set up subscriptions for customers. When a customer purchases a product associated with a Stripe subscription plan, they'll be subscribed, and Stripe will charge them at whatever duration the plan is. When it charges them, it sends a webhook to my extension with the subscription data, and my extension then creates a new order in the OpenCart system. You can use that to see when you get a new order, and send out the magazine accordingly.

Feel free to take a look at the screenshots and demo site, and if you're interested let me know at www.getclearthinking.com/contact if you have any further questions.

That's all food for thought.

What about the Recurring Profiles option?

OC's built in recurring profiles works fine. Just keep a few things in mind:
- you need a payment method that supports subriptions. paypal express for example
- profiles are attached to products and charged separately.
- no recurring shipping costs
- product price has to be >0.00
- profiles don't show in cart totals
- subsequent payments are logged in orders->profiles->transactions, but...
- No new invoices are created. This might be important for your administration

Cheers

Shame about this in the recurring profiles:

- profiles don't show in cart totals
- subsequent payments are logged in orders->profiles->transactions, but...
- No new invoices are created. This might be important for your administration

The invoices are a very big problem for admin, if a invoice or receipt isn't sent how will admin know to send them a order?

I'm planing on using Satispay, being the cheapest payment system (below €10 = Free, above €10 = €0.20), but not sure if satispay can be used as a automatic subscription payment service.

When subscriptions were added to oc only Paypal express was supported. I guess the oc guys thought a paypal invoice would suffice.
You do get a transaction update though via the ipn.
I don't know anything about Satispay, you should probably ask them and make sure there's an oc extension that can handle it, if they do!

I've already contacted them. It takes time for them to reply as I haven't signed up yet.

Hope the IPN tells of the different copies reordered.

Usually it's the same product or service that's automatically recharged at set intervals.

Yes, but they can add or remove magazines at any time.
