Provide a simple, manual renewal system to your customers
Best WooCommerce recurring payments plugin for manually paid subscriptions, recurring products and reorders.
Why prefer manual recurring payments over automatic payments?
Recurring payments or recurring billing is a great option for consistent and steady income. It also helps retain customers. Digital downloads, monthly magazines, courses, tutorials, etc, it is easy to renew subscription products.
Now, there are two renewal options – automatic renewals and manual renewals. One of the biggest advantages of having automatic renewals is payment gets automatically debited from the customer’s account.
However, not all payment gateways support automatic recurring payments. Automatic renewals won’t give flexibility for customers to change payment method, shipping method, billing and shipping address. All the same. And only recurring discount coupons will be applied.
On the other hand, manual WooCommerce recurring payments gives full flexibility to customers to choose their preferred payment gateway, shipping method, billing and shipping address for each renewal. They also enjoy the privilege to apply multiple coupons (product and cart), pay taxes applicable at the time of renewal.
So if you want a simple solution that does these and a lot more for manual orders, this WooCommerce recurring payments plugin called WooCommerce Renewals is an ideal choice.

Setting renewal price and allowing customers to renew their subcription is a cakewalk with this plugin.
Set renewal price
- Create or open any existing simple or variable product.
- Go to Product > General > Renewal price under Simple product
- Set the renewal price.
- For variable products, you’ll find this option under each product variation.

Renewing digital/downloadable products
After setting the renewal price, the price syncs with the Download Expiry field of WooCommerce. A Renew button will appear on My Account page when the digital product is about to expire. By default, the Renew button will appear 31 days prior to the product expiry.
Renewing physical products
Set the renewal price. Then on the next purchase of the product, the renewal price will get applied to it & the customer will get the product at a discounted price. A Reorder button will appear next to the order.
