    I want to charge $1 up front during the trial period and then $99 after

    Asked by empassionnatural on October 08, 2015 at 09:25 AM

    I want to charge $1 up front during the trial period and then $99 after 1 month... but it won't let me.

    Is there any way to make this work without having the customer to enter a coupon?

    I believe the "Trial Period" option is set to be "Free" as that would allow your users to feel the product or service. However, if you set up the "First Payment" and the "Trial Period" at the same time, you will be allowed to charged your customer a specific amount on the "Trial Period" unfortunately, this cannot be lower than the original price.

    I believe the best approach here would be user coupon code as a discount price for the first payment.


    I hope that helps.
