IMPORTANT NOTE: Paid Trial is not supported with recurring plan in stripe. But you can manage such cases in ARMember by following the steps given below:

For ex. If you want to add $5 for trial period of 7 Day in a recurring plan for which billing amount is $20 every month. So, you have to create a subscription plan with 7 Day trial period from your Stripe account. When someone buys this plan, he/she will be charged $5 as one time charge and also $20 as a subscription charge for the first time only. After that he will be charged $20 only every month.

Please note that if your plan created in stripe API has different trial period the first priority of trial period will be considered from ARMember plan.

Go to your ARMember Plan Page and create plan accordingly.

Subscription Retries for Failed 3D Secure Authorizations

As per new SCA regulatory, If a subscription payment fails due to authentication issues when using 3D Secure, the payment would not automatically retry based on your retry settings. Unauthorized payments are still considered active, as they are waiting to be authenticated and have not technically failed as payments.

You will need to enable the Send a Stripe Email to Authenticate toggle in your settings and configure the retry settings.

To enable the settings for authenticate email, follow below steps

  • Log into your stripe account at https://dashboard.stripe.com/
  • Click on the settings
  • Click on Subscriptions and email from Billing section. which you can find under the Stripe apps settings.
  • ARMember General Settings ( Payment Gateways )

  • Now enable switches for customer emails under Manage payments that require 3D Secure
  • You can set up to 3 reminders for your customer to complete the payment after payment has been initialized but did not complete 3D authentication. Set as per your requirement
  • ARMember General Settings ( Payment Gateways )

  • Save settings
  • Now if any subscription is initialized but failed due to 3D authentication, Stripe will send an email to your customer to confirm the payment with 3D authencation. Stripe will send the email based on your reminder settings.
