Member Area Discount on Reoccurring Fee

Recommended Posts

To encourage membership to have a trial, I would like to offer discounted or free first month.  The discounts do not work when fee is set to reoccurring.  The only way I can find for a discount to work is for one time fee.  

Any idea on a workaround or if a fix is being worked on?  It's seems to be an intuitive use of a discount and like something a lot of people would want.

I thought of doing one time fee with discount and then plan to add a subscription on the backend in Stripe, but that takes the automation out totally and you don't collect the credit card information so it ends up a monthly invoice.

Thanks for help!

I am struggling with something similar. Wishing there was a direct way within the Member Areas to offer a trial period or recurring discount, even different fee structures for the same content area (monthly and annual options for an example).

I hope someone is able to chime in with some guidance or with any indication if this is on the radar for Squarespace.

Not ideal, but my workaround (for the member site I'm launching in a few days) is to create:

  • one Member Area that's set to free access, and
  • a second Member Area that's a monthly recurring fee

I'm only going to toggle the free one on from time to time (it will contain sample content) as a promotion for new sign-ups. When I toggle it off, free users who have signed up will only see the per-month Member Area.

I would prefer to have coupon codes (or gift cards/codes) that grant temporary access. I imagine it's already on the wish list — right Squarespace pals?
