Creating a Subscription Product

Cart66 comes with its own built-in recurring billing engine for selling subscriptions on your website. Subscriptions and recurring billing work with all of the on-site payment gateways supported by Cart66.

A subscription is the same thing as a membership product except that a membership product does not involve recurring billing. Both a membership product and a subscription product enable you to sell membership access to content on your WordPress site. Create a subscription if you want your customers to be automatically billed on a recurring basis, such as once per month.

BILL EVERY: Specify how frequently you would like to charge your customer.

BILL CYCLES: Specify how many times you want to charge your customer. If the subscription is for 7 months, choose "7 times" from the drop-down menu.
