Hi! I have three questions concerning subscriptions. A little background information: I have three ‘normal’ products and one subscription product.
I apologize in advance for the structure and complexity of this question. It was the best way for me to organize my thoughts.
1. Minimum length of membership for subscription orders.
A. When my store is up and running under normal operation, I would like my subscription orders to reoccur every month indefinitely. Can I make this happen by simply adding “<input type="hidden" sub_frequency="1m" />” to my product form?
B. Also, I would like to be able to offer my subscription members a lower price (when compared to the single occurrence ‘normal’ product option) and free shipping with the understanding they are responsible for a minimum of 3 consecutive monthly orders. What do you think is the best way to make this happen?
A. Before my store is up and running under normal operation, I would like to offer preorders. I have found a couple a couple post (http://forum.foxycart.com/discussion/4300/pre-orders/p1
) and (http://forum.foxycart.com/discussion/6576/pre-order-mockup-using-subscriptions
), but they seem to be working under slightly different situations. When someone pre-orders one of my products, I would like them to be charged, but I don’t want the shipment to go through until my production run is complete.
i. How do I make this happen?
1. For my normal products, can I have the transactions completed normally but not have the order sent out until it is ready? (If it helps, I think I will be using orderdesk to connect with shipwire).
a. Do you know what type of input would be required of me to make this happen?
b. Do you know if I can select orders to have shipped by particular attributes (i.e. a particular range of order dates)?
2. For my subscription orders, can I temporarily set “sub_frequency” to something like 3 months, then later change “sub_frequency” to 1 month and “sub_startdate” to whatever date I ship?
a. What will it take for me to change product options like sub_frequency and sub_startdate? Is there a way for me to edit many orders at the same time through my FoxyCart admin page? Must I use API? Or is there an easier way to do this? (I finally got the entire chain working for transaction XML datafeeds to update my database automatically, but it wasn’t easy for me).
3. Editing subscriptions from my foxyCart admin page.
A. What happens when I cancel a subscription from the FoxyCart admin page? Will my datafeed url be sent a subscription datafeed that will update my database?
