New approach for Trial & Set-up Fee

So a new approach has been accepted which will implement both the feature with some intelligence for all the above mentioned payment gateways.

You can charge a separate amount for first installation and after that regular price will be charged. A restriction is there that you can not change the time period for trial subscription, it should be same as recurring period of regular price.  But it ensures that it will work with all payment gateways which support either Trial subscription or Set-up Fee.

Let's have a look on examples :-

Trial subscription (through PayPal) : Through a recurring plan, i am charging users $30 for every 2 months with 6 recurrence count. But I want to charge only $10 for first two months (recurring period) as Trial Subscription .

Set-up Fee (through 2checkout) : Charging $10 extra (upon $30) for first recurring period to set up user's account. So first price is of $40 inclusive of set-up (start-up) fee and regular price.

Trial subscription (through 2checkout) : If you want to charge $10 for first month as trial subscription and then $30 every month for next 2 months, then set first price as $10. It will automatically set $-20 in start-up fee (in case of 2 checkout only) and add it to regular price as shown below :

This way PayPlans is giving you flexibility to set trial subscription and set-up fee with any of the payment gateways. This all will be available to you in PayPlans 1.2. Till then, stay tuned to know about upcoming features.
