Subscription type = flat rate + $x/transaction

1 month 2 days ago - 1 month 2 days ago #306896 by lasagnaman
Hi,
Does CBSubs support a subscription model that has a flat monthly fee + $x / transaction?
I know that I may have to feed in data as far as membership id, # transactions. I would like to store the $x/transaction in the subscription model.
Has anyone set this up and how would it be done?
The billing and statement would then show the flat rate on one line and the $x/tran x number of trans on a second line.
Thanks,
Lou

Looks like the flat monthly fee could be the plan price, and the variable monthly fee be a negative promotion based on a CB user field value (storing your $x/"transactions" amount). Then if you have your "transactions" stored in another field, you could do the maths for the corresponding $ value using another CB field and using CB auto-actions or a CB code field.

This variable way is not possible with auto-recurring payments, because most gateways don't support variable auto-recurrings.

Does that answer your question ?

Hi Beat, thanks for your response.
I am a little rusty on this, so it will take me a while to understand what you suggested.
In summary though, I guess that I will not be able to bill customers the flat recurring monthly rate + a variable (based on $x/transaction - correct?

It sounds like these would be separate billings and cannot be put on the same invoice / statement.
Let me know if I understand that correctly.
Thanks,
Lou

Correct, you would not be able to dynamically change the price of a recurring billing subscription. Payment gateways typically will not allow you to change the price of a billing agreement like that. However what you're wanting would work fine for single payments where they'd have to renew manually.
