we sell licences for our software product. How does the customer enter the number of licences they wish to purchase for a subscription? Are bulk discounts (using estore-bulk-discount-by-line-item) applied?

Recurring “subscription” payments do not support quantities. Is THAT what you are trying to do?November 6, 2020 at 5:25 pm #81862
we need the customer to enter the number of licences required.
We also need subscriptions to support:
- Multi-currency (WP eStore Multi Currency AddOn)
- bulk item discount (estore-bulk-discount-by-line-item)
Is this functionality supported?

None of that is possible with subscriptions. Subscriptions, in eStore, are handled as recurring payment contracts between the payment processor (PayPal, et al) and the purchaser. Such subscriptions do not permit quantities or variations. The only way to do this; is if the number of permutations is small enough, that you can offer a list of subscription packages; that include the most sought after quantities and variations.November 6, 2020 at 9:05 pm #81867
we don’t wish to vary the quantity or the product after the payment contract has been created with the payment processor. We require similar functionality to a buy now button, but create a recurring payment contract instead.
i.e. from customer’s purchase process would be
- Select the currency [WP eStore Multi Currency AddOn]
- Select the variation
- Enter the quantity
- Determine any discounts [estore-bulk-discount-by-line-item]
The steps above would result in eStore calculating a total price. A recurring payment contract would then be created with the payment processor for that amount.
Is this possible, or is it planned as a future enhancement?

Variations and quantities only work with items purchased using the cart; which the plugin has control over. Subscriptions, which are recurring payment contracts, bypass the cart and go directly to PayPal. The plugin has no way of controlling that process. Short of asking us to develop a custom work order solution, the next best way is to have a list of pre-defined subscription packages, as I earlier suggested.

we will handle recurring payments outside of WP eStore.
