Do I have to use WooCommerce Subscriptions Add-On for subscription payments when using MemberPress WooCommerce Plus?
If you want to integrate MemberPress and WooCommerce using MemberPress WooCommerce Plus, and you want to charge subscriptions you will need a subscription plugin or add-on for WooCommerce.
When using MemberPress WooCommerce Plus
, WooCommerce is the one responsible for the payment processing, while MemberPress is responsible for the content protection and restriction.
We recommend using the official WooCommerce Subscriptions add-on
by WooCommerce, however, you can also use other subscription add-ons for WooCommerce that integrates with WooCommerce.
Please note that there is one very major benefit to using the official WooCommerce Subscriptions add-on over other add-ons or plugins:
You can use a different subscription plugin for WooCommerce, the main difference however, is that with WooCommerce subscriptions our plugin supports refunds
With all plugins, when a customer cancels his subscription, the membership will expire at the end of the period and will not renew again.
However, when someone cancels the order and gets a refund, our plugin will automatically set the membership as "Refunded" within MemberPress itself > in the transactions tab > "Status".
This feature is supported only
when using WooCommerce Subscriptions WooCommerce official add-on.
If you will use a different add-on or plugin you will need to change the membership's status manually.
Here is a screenshot of where you change the status:
