Recurring Payments & Subscriptions now Available!

October 28, 2013 by Scott Campbell

PayStand has released the much requested feature of Subscriptions & Recurring Payments. They are simple to use, great for all sorts of products and services, and our early-access users have already expressed their love of them!

Have a charitable organization? Establish a method for donors to give the same amount every month.

Have monthly or yearly dues for your organization? Members can pay anywhere your PayStand store is available.

Do you offer a "Product of the Month" subscription? Build an item for the subscription and send your customers fresh orders every month.

Do you want to charge a monthly subscription to your blog, release of new content or latest catalog? Set up a monthly service item and offer it on your blog, Facebook Page, website, Twitter stream and more.

Are you releasing songs at regular intervals? Build a digital "monthly subscription" product your customers purchase, and upload a new music file behind the URL every month. (not to worry - we can turn off individual customers' connections to that URL, if/when they choose to cancel their subscription).

And Billing, subscriptions, and recurring payments are critical for service business, such as...

  • Accountants, organizing ledgers on a monthly basis or annual (read: tax season).
  • Landscapers, taking care of the grounds regularly.
  • Web Support is an on-going service, even if it's just space on a server.
  • Consultants come in regularly to help train, organize, and improve.
  • Day Care is often a regular service, and what's better than a mother on Facebook recommending you to her friends.
  • Yoga Lessons feel great when, as a student, you come in regularly. Now, teachers can easily take payment where it's easiest.
  • Physical Therapists and Trainers will work with you months at a time.
  • Dog Walkers know what you know: Fido is happiest when walked regularly.
