Spree Product Subscriptions is an extension to let users have time interval based subscription of products in a spree application.
This extension allows the admin to create a subscribable product on the Admin end.
This product can then be bought one-time or as a subscription.
Once subscribed, subscription orders will automatically be created for the user at the selected time interval.
Add spree_product_subscriptions to your Gemfile:
gem 'spree_product_subscriptions', github: 'vinsol-spree-contrib/spree_product_subscriptions'
Bundle your dependencies and run the installation generator:
bundle bundle exec rails g spree_product_subscriptions:install
You can also seed the default data with:
bundle exec rails g spree_product_subscriptions:seed
Admin can mark a product as
subscribable on the
Admin -> Products -> Edit page. The admin will have to choose the subscription frequencies to be made available for that product.
Subscription frequencies are created by default when you seed data. You can also add subscription frequencies through
Admin -> Configurations -> Subscription Frequencies -> New page.
When user is purchasing a subscribable product, he gets an option to make it a 'One Time Order' or a 'Subscription Order'.
When making a 'Subscription Order', the user will have to choose Delivery Interval, Total Deliveries, and Quantity. The first order will be made on checkout and remaining orders will automatically be created for the user at the selected time intervals.
The users can check their subscriptions on the 'My Account' page. They can update subscription info, pause or cancel their subscriptions via the
Subscription -> Edit page.
A cron job needs to be run to process subscriptions
bundle exec rake subscription:process
This will run the pending subscriptions.
A cron job can also be run to notify users of upcoming subscriptions:
bundle exec rake subscription:prior_notify
This will inform users that they have a subscription that is coming up in 'x' days. The number of days can be changed on subscription edit page.
