Variable Product Subscriptions

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://roastologycoffee.com

We are a coffee roasting business currently using WooCommerce ( the site URL above) and want to move to Squarespace.  We sell variable subscription coffee products where a customer can choose using a drop down box either a one-time purchase or a subscription of once per week, bi-weekly, or monthly on the same product. How can we accomplish this with Squarespace without creating 4 different products?

You cannot accomplish this with Squarespace without creating separate products. Also, customers will not be able to checkout with a subscription and a one-time purchase in the same transaction.

Subscriptions are a fairly new feature on Squarespace and so they do not have many advanced features yet. For example:

  • You cannot view the number of active subscriptions.
  • Customers cannot change their shipping address. They must cancel and re-subscribe.
  • Customers  cannot checkout with a subscription and a one-time product in the same transaction.

I'm running into a similar issue.  However, I'm trying to offer subscriptions with quantity variables.  Is there a way to do that?  Right now I can only offer monthly subscriptions with a single quantity (the customer can't choose to purchase more per month).  Any suggestions?

It is only possible to purchase a single subscription per order.

The only workaround is to offer a second subscription at a higher price. For example the 'Two packets of coffee subscription' in addition to the 'One packet of coffee subscription'.
