WooCommerce – Subscribe All the Things

Download this mini-extension.

Subscribe All The Things is a free mini-extension for WooCommerce Subscriptions that provides experimental subscriptions support for non-subscription product types. It allows you to attach subscription options to Simple products, Variable products, Composite Products, Product Bundles and Mix and Match Products, and includes a neat feature: The ability to switch any product from a one-time purchase to a subscription, even after is has been added in the cart.

The code is in beta phase and is already publicly available for testing, feedback and contributions.

Important: Subscribe All The Things requires WooCommerce Subscriptions v2.0+.
Example: Offering a Mix and Match product as a Subscription

As an example, we will be taking a look at Almonds Mix, a 500g mix and match assortment of 5 different 100g almond packs, offered as a subscription at 20% off:

Note that Subscribe All The Things will add a new Subscription tab to the product data metabox, which can be used to configure the subscription parameters of our Mix and Match product. To offer the assortment as a subscribed group of products, we have created a single subscription option and ticked the Force Subscription checkbox:

convert a mix and match assortment into a monthly subscription

 

After adding the configured assortment to the cart, all bundled cart items, along with the container cart item itself, are converted to subscriptions with the same period, interval and length:

Subscribe All the Things currently only supports statically-priced Mix and Match containers. However, as of Mix and Match 1.4.0 you can use the WC MNM SATT Bridge plugin to provide compatibility.
