Integration of subscriptions


Hello, I’m interested in your service but have a few questions that I couldn’t find answers to on your website. + For subscriptions, does Click2Sell handle the recurring billing? If so, what billing cycles are available? Is the $1 – $3 transaction fee charged per each monthly transaction, or against the initial subscription? Can my customers change their subscription (i.e. can they go from a standard program to a premium program)? + Is there a detailed API document? All I could find was a blog post with the list of fields and a small bit of PHP code. + Is there some kind of “test mode” or test accounts available for use while implementing the API? Thanks so much for your help with this. Click2Sell looks like a great service, and I hope it’ll be the right choice for integration into my project. Kind regards, Jon

Hello Jon,

thanks for contacting us! Let me answer your questions one by one.

Subscriptions are handled by PayPal or Click2Sell. If you sell your subscription via PayPal, then it will be handled by PayPal. In all other cases (if you have PayPal Website Payments PRO, Worldpay,, eWay, LinkPoint, First Data, Your Pay, PayPoint, Moneris, Sage Pay (former Protx), Optimal Payments or Ogone account), subscriptions will
be handled by Click2Sell.

Subscription periods can be whatever you want. You will need to setup initial price and period and then another price and recurring period for your subscription product/service. You can enter any number of days / weeks / months / years in those periods.

Fees are applied on each payment you receive, whether it is initial payment or recurring payment. In other words Click2Sell charges 1usd, 2usd or 3usd (depending on your product’s price) per each transaction for it’s services.

Right now there is no possibility to upgrade existing subscription. If some of your customer would want a better membership type, he/she will need to stop the current one and then order the premium one.

There is no manual for subscriptions, because all you need to do is just to add your product/service into Click2Sell (“For Merchant” -> “Add product”), take generated Click2Sell buy buttons ant put them into your website and turn on API notifications in product’s settings. That’s it. You can use “Test buy” feature in your account’s members area for testing API notifications.

I hope I answered your questions. If you have any other question, just let me know! I’ll be glad to help you!
