    How do you set a 30 day trial period for a yearly subscription?

    Asked by brod on January 20, 2012 at 11:24 PM

    Google parameters allow:

    is_recurring=1 google_recurring_times=1 google_recurring_period_unit=YEARLY trial_1_period=1 trial_1_period_unit=M

    How do I set a one month trial period for a yearly subscription using JotForm?

    Hello brod,

    Currently the trial period can't be adjusted.  But defnitely, this is a feature that can be necessary to a number of users so I will submit a request to the development team regarding this.  Unfortunately, we cannot give you a definite timeframe to when this feature will be implemented.  But once this is done, we'll let you know right away.

    Thank you for your patience.

    How does the trial period work for Google Checkout or for PayPal? In both cases I've found that I was charged instantly.

    Would you mind opening a new forum topic so we can properly investigate your case and attach a 2nd tier support ticket, if needed?

    Hi brod,

    We've updated the google checkout subscription configuration. Trial amount is added so you can set it form a default list of periods.
