  1. allow for promotional periods or varied billing amounts on recurring orders

    My subscribers often have different monthly amounts or a promotional period before the base rate starts. For instance, customer number 1 may have 3 months at $59 before the regular rate of $99 kicks in. Customer #2 may be on a coupon that gives them $29 for month 1, $69 for month 2, and then the regular $99 starts. Doing this manually is a real headache.

  2. Batch edit recurring payments

    If the number of recurring payments needs to change for all orders, you have to go in and manually change the number of payments to be made. For instance, if a mistake was made and the recurring payments are set to an "unlimited" amount of recurring charges when it should have been only 2, every order that was made prior to changing the the setting on the product still has to be updated manually. It would be helpful to be able to do this in one batch.

  4. Delay first charge and set future charges on a certain day of the month not by a certain amount of days

    The charge by day of the month was released in 2011, but it isn't compatible when we need to delay a payment by a certain amount of days. We prefer our customers to enroll early, but they only want the payments to start a few months down the road. It doesn't make sense for us to charge them every 30 or 31 days. We need to be able to delay a payment and choose to charge monthly. Please combine those two features. Both are already developed separately, so it shouldn't be too much additional work.

  5. API Method for Recurring Order List/Read and Notification

    Simply listing line items in the Orders/{id|token}/READ call with related recurring order events (e.g., status and next recurring date) would be a great start. The next recurring date is important if no notification of a new recurring order event occurs.

    Also, I noticed that the Orders/{id|token}/READ has RecurringOrderId, which is great, but it does not contain a Recurring ID.

  6. Allow my product with options to also be recurring. Now I have to enter as three separate products vs. one product with three options.

  7. Allow recurring orders to be searched for by company.

    Allow recurring orders to be search by company, not just a person's name or email. When displaying recurring order results, please bring back recurring order price and a direct link to the billing history. the most recent updates have made navigating and operating recurring orders far more difficult.

  9. Flexible recurring payment set up

    Recurring payments are the backbone many businesses revenues.

    Using 1SC with Paypal however, we are locked into products having only one setting for recurring payments.

    We would like a set up such that "Payment Schedules" for recurring payments have two tiers.

    For example, from one product we would like to be able to charge:

    3 payments of $99 (every 30 days), then have that lead into…

    9 payments of $19 (every 30 days) once the first run has complete.

    This one feature would allow us to greatly expand what we're doing, and I'm sure many other 1SC users.

  11. Add A "Days Between" Recurring Billing Attempts

    This would allow us to automatically have the cards tried again periodically, instead of every single day...

    This would be extremely helpful!

  13. Recurring Price in Product Options

    The product options work but if the same is used in the recurring mode. It should pick up the price but is picking up the original recurring price. If the production option price is picked and passed for recurring order, it will make it as a great feature. we have an account and missing this feature

  15. For the recurring order list page

    On the recurring order pages, there's no indication of how many products or the total amount that is charged for each recurring order listed. Could those amounts be listed on that page?

    For our business, we don't want clients to order more than 1 of each different item that is recurring. We see each item listed, but we have no idea the quantity that on the recurring payment. As it is, every month we have to go through each separate item on the list and click on "Edit" to see the quantity. As more and more items appear on that…

  16. Charge shipping all at once on reoccurring items that have the same schedule

    Please include an option to allow for reoccurring order items to be billed shipping charges all together instead of breaking each item out into its own order with its own shipping charges. Ultimately customers are overcharged shipping with the current method, and to manually fix every customers' shipping amounts per reoccurring item is not efficient for a large volume of customers using reoccurring orders. The feature of allowing reoccurring orders is to benefit the customer by making it easy to use, and with the current programming, it goes against this ideal.

  17. Under the recurring section on a product have a "Apply coupon to recurring events" box that can be checked.

    When a customer makes a recurring purchase and has applied a coupon, the coupon only deducts from the original payment, and not the recurring payments. Having the mentioned box checked will apply the coupon to the future recurring payments. Some of us use the recurring payment as a way to provide flex pay to our customers. If a coupon is applied, we have to go in and change the recurring amount on their order to reflect the coupon discount. This takes time and can also be missed, causing customer complaints.

  19. Have a "Same Date--Annual" renewal.

  20. Allow one product to be both charge as fixed price OR recurring for payment plan

    It would be fantastic if you could make it possible to make one product be either fixed price OR recurring to take payment plans.

    As it is now, you have to create two separate products with two different shopping carts (unless you get a developer to custom code the shopping card), one of them that sends them to the fixed price offer, and the other with the payment plan offer.

    Why can't you code it so that the customer can go to the same shopping cart page and easily choose between the full fixed price vs. monthly payments?

    It seems…
