Subscription Help? Bill Customers 1st of every month?


Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.planetsprinkles.com/shop/p/out-of-this-world-subscription-box

I did some searching but couldn't find any help on this subject.

I've created a subscription product that is themed for every month. I would like to start shipping this out the first week of the month so they are timely (example Feb 1 shipment date on my Feb box which is themed 'love').

I only have a few subscribers right now. One subscribed on the 2nd and one subscribed on the 6th. In the backend you can "change" the subscription date but I can't actually revert it to the first. The closest that I can do right now is March 1st. I'd still like to fill subscriptions for this month up until the 15th and then have them be billed for the Feb box on the 1st.

Is there a way around this - do I have to push their renewals till March and have them pay separately for Feb - it just is rather annoying that I upgraded my subscription on Squarespace - and it looks like it's not going to work as I hoped.

This is a known limitation. Subscriptions won't start on a single billing date per month, but you can manually delay each new subscription so that they become aligned after purchase.  You can do this in Home > Profiles > Customers:

  • Find and click the customer whose subscription you want to delay.
  • Click Reschedule order date
  • Select the new renewal date.
  • Click Save
  • Click Continue.

There are still known limitations with Squarespace Subscriptions, and I've documented a few of them in a post about Commerce limitations in June 2018. If you want to lobby Squarespace for improvements to subscriptions - or anything else - I recommend opening a ticket through Customer Support because this is how they manage feature requests.
