My company needs to offer the sale of “subscriptions”. I.e. recurring charges to customers that can take place AUTOMATICALLY on a monthly / quarterly / annual basis and have those transactions automatically flow into the accounting system. This is a make or break point on the use of this software. This should be a product type in the storefront catalogue.
I know that I’ve seen subscription modules in vanilla OFBiz, but I did not explore them, so I can’t say much more than I was under the impression that was already part of the software.
Does Scipio support this feature? I could not find a “subscription product type”.
If this is built-in already, what are the options for such? For instance, does it make the charges itself, or does it collect info about such after a credit card vendor initiates the charge? Can the customer dictate functions like canceling the subscription?
PayPal provides subscription services, does it perhaps integrate with that? What other payment processors could be used for this purpose? I would want to offer both PayPal and a direct credit card entry option if possible.
