💥 Tips: 🦄
- If the credit card of an ongoing subscription is canceled, expired, marked as fraud or otherwise interrupted our system will attempt to re-charge it in three days. After three attempts, If the subscription cannot be processed it will be cancelled and both user and client will get an email notification. The Subscription will need to be recreated.
- Subscriptions can only be set up using a clients authorized credit card via your connected payment gateway (i.e., Stripe or WePay).
- Just a heads up! Subscriptions will automatically fail if the charged amount is less than $3.
- The client will be emailed a payment receipt automatically every time a subscription payment is processed and they can also view the payments processed via their personal subscription link.
- If you enter a previous start date for the subscription, payments will be back dated, meaning the payments will be processed on the recurring schedule as of the start date entered in the terms.
