    Hi, I am using your Stripe payment integration. Is it possible to apply a coupon code to only the FIRST month?  For example, subscription would be for $50 monthly.  But with the coupon, month 1 would be $25 and the following months would stay at the original price of $50.  Thank you.

    Yes you can. Choos the expiration date in your coupon settings then choose 50% so that it will only be $25 for 1st charge then once the coupon expires it will be $50 on succeeding months.

    By the way if you want to have a recurring charge you need to choose "Sell Subscriptions".

    Is there another way to do this?  I tested the above method out and ran into some problems. It shows up as, "$25 for the first month then $25 for each month".  It is very misleading to the customer if they were to sign up.  Also, I do not want to put an expiry date on the coupon.  Is there a workaround this?  Or is it possible to set the "First Payment (setup fee + regular price)" to be lower than the normal price?  Please help, thanks.

    First payment is a total of regular price + setup fee so it can't be lower than the regular price. I'm thinking of a different feature to request to our 2nd level. I'll check this first then update this thread once I have forwarded a request to our 2nd level.

    I have submitted a request to our 2nd level to add a feature that will allow user to choose payment by numbers of months for recurring charges ex. 1st month, 2nd month, 3rd month and so on.

    Here's a sample image:

    Unfortunately we cannot give you an estimate time for this completion. Right now this ticket has an "open" status and has not been assigned yet to a developer. Later they will evaluate its feasibility and decide on its implementation.

    You will be contacted via this thread once they news on this.

    Please get back to us if further support is needed.
    Thank you
