Renewable subscription / recurring billing or fees
Ability to subscribe and renew periodically monthly or annually with email reminders, or auto subscribe with initial approval for auto subscribe.
It's important that we can offer a subscription service with a recurring payment to our customers. We have many subscribers, but we're still forced to use the basic PayPal html option. Love the store and this would make it that much better.
For service based sites, this is a requirement. This would be a regular reoccuring charge that is processed, once a week, once a month or year. The customer should be able to log in and stop future charges.
This would be great for sports and social clubs. Even better if you could enable customers to have pre-paid credit accounts
Absolutely essential for service-based subscriptions like email marketing, blog ghost writing, reselling, etc. Setup so that funds may be drafted from clients' accounts automatically or so that friendly reminders are sent out 90, 60, 30, etc. days before periodic due dates.
I am not a programmer. I am a nonprofit operations director. Our ecwid site offers recurring payments but we only receive the 1st month at sign up. Important customers are 'signed up' for this service but we are not receiving the monies. I cannot spend another working day trying to figure out how to set up software : I need a live, ecwid person to contact me and assist with this product we have purchased from you. Our monthly payments to you are going through easily enough. Please assist me; Justin's article below reads like a foreign language to me, sorry.

For those who are posting about needing this - I'm gonna post this again. We got recurring billing to work with a little tweaking. Check out our blog post here:
For the details of it. And of course if you have any questions about it please contact me.
please get this going asap!
we're missing out on a ton of sales without having this applied.
...it's almost a necessity to have, as there are so many services that are monthy fee related.
I have just done this with another wordpress cart system and they too have been waiting a year withis this subject being top of the list. I have just wasted a complete morning looking through the Ecwid system hoping that recurring payments would be possible. I am now going to look elsewhere which is a pity
At this point I'd be happy with one-time donations, at least. Recurring would be a great thing for us, but being able to have a donation product that the customer sets the amount in will help our church out tremendously.
Donations could be easily implemented for nonprofits by having a form that allows users to specify an amount (and offer suggested amounts to select), and then specifying a frequency (weekly, monthly, yearly, custom).
For regular businesses, those same options would be available for the merchant to build the product specs. Then, the customers would just select the product (which would already have the description of the recurring terms preselected). Seems like an easy to add feature. Surprised it's not already available.
This would be great for our nonproft, so we can accept recurring donations.

We figured out how to make this work. I have posted all the directions on my site: http://justinesgar.com/recurring-billing-with-ecwid-and-2checkout/
We use this technique on a few sites and it works really well.
there are lots of votes here, when is this going to start?
definitely need this for several of my projects! have been looking at other options to get this functionality so I hope it is available soon as I do not want to have to change. :)

Especially for abonents it is necessary for the customers, that they can choose monthly fees and have the possibility to cancel their plan at any time they wish.
I would highly appreciate, if this option will be soon available in Ecwid Online Store. Please, let me know as soon as it is available. Thanks a million.
This is exactly what I need. But by the timeline and the comments posted here, I'm guessing it's not going to happen.
2009. It's 2013, 4 years latew. Wow.

Hope it's worth wasting my 3 VOTES??? Guys what is the realistic update on this HIGHLY needed integration? Do you offer any suggestion for Authorize.net ARB (automatic recurring billing). Please advise. Thank you.

Qetzal is our advocate and I wanted to know if he could shed some light on this. Qetzal can we please get this idea off the ground? I really need it for myself and our clients. Thanks
i'm currently setting up my website and came across this issue. My business absolutely would require a re-bill monthly service.
Should I start looking for a alternate set up?
