Dear Square Customer Support,
I need clarification regarding the integration of subscription ‘plan_id’ with the Create Payment Link process (online-checkout/payment-links).
My goal is to establish a Subscription Plan that can encompass either one or both of our products, providing the customer with the flexibility to choose a Monthly or Quarterly billing cycle.
To elaborate, I want our customers to:
Select their desired products and quantities from our shopping cart.
Opt for either a Monthly or Quarterly subscription. Based on their choice, a recurring subscription should be generated, mirroring the products and quantities of their initial order.
For instance, if a customer selects 1 unit of Product A and 3 units of Product B, and opts for a Quarterly Subscription, I’d like to input a SUBSCRIPTION_PLAN_ID into the “online-checkout/payment-links” API. This would ensure their order is billed at their selected subscription interval.
My queries are:
A) Does integrating the Subscription Plan with the Create Payment Link (online-checkout/payment-links) automatically schedule the full order to the chosen subscription frequency?
B) I’ve observed that while making the “online-checkout/payment-links” API call, there isn’t a specific field to determine the Subscription Cadence. Though I can input the SUBSCRIPTION_PLAN_ID, it’s possible to attach multiple cadences to that single ID. Can customers select their desired cadence at the Checkout Page when presented with multiple options?
Thank you for your assistance!
