Turn Shoppers into Customers
First and foremost, the Payment Plans WC plugin will help you improve sales, as it will help you overcome one of the most significant obstacles standing in the way of you making a sale: the necessity to pay for a product at once and in full.
By allowing partial payments for your products, people visiting your website will no longer have an excuse for not becoming a customer.
Adding a payment plan to your website can also improve average order value (AOV) and improve customer satisfaction, and all at a very small price.
Receive Recurring Payments Automatically
Payment Plans WC is not the only plugin available for adding payment plans to WooCommerce websites. There is also a plugin called WooCommerce Deposits. But the latter solution has a major drawback: it doesn’t support automatic billing and automatic rebilling of failed payments.
With the Payment Plans WC plugin, you don’t have to worry about losing revenue in the future, as it automatically bills your customers whenever a payment is due.
It also rebills them whenever a payment fails for any reason.
Add Payment Plans Cost Effectively
Companies such as Affirm, After Pay and Sezzle charge 6-10% of the purchase price for adding payment plans to your WooCommerce site. But with the Payment Plans WC plugin, you only pay an annual fee of $99 and the standard payment processing fee that your payment gateway charges, such as Authorize.net, Stripe and so forth (usually somewhere around 2.9%.)

Makes it Easier
We wanted to offer an option for a customer to spread the cost of an online course over 3 months – via Paypal. The software was easy to set up and worked great straight away. I had a couple of questions which Simon responded to very quickly and even ended up making a couple of amendments to the plugin following my feedback. FANTASTIC service and a very small price to pay for the extra functionality of being able to set up a Part Payment option – and more – for your online store
Multiple Payment Options
With the Payment Plans WC plugin, you can give your customers multiple payment options. In addition to paying for a product all at once, they will also have the option to pay an upfront fee and the remainder at a later date, dividing the payments into multiple parts over time.
Automatic Email Renewal Notifications
With the plugin, you can automatically send email renewal notifications, letting your customers know exactly when a payment is scheduled. It will also notify them of upcoming payments and when payments have been processed.
Automatic Rebilling for Failed Installment Payments
The plugin supports automatic rebilling of failed installment payments. This means that you will never lose revenue because of some error or have to spend time tracking down a customer payment.
Cart and Checkout User Experience
Using the plugin, you can keep your customers informed during the entire cart checkout process. This way, at all times they will know what they will owe now and in the future.
Automatic and Secure Payments
The plugin also allows you to schedule your payment plans anyway you’d like. You can set it up so that it automatically bills your customers over the course of days, weeks, months and even years.
Mixed Product Pages
With the plugin, you don’t need to create multiple pages for a product when making this product available as both a one-time purchase and a payment plan. You can simply signify that this product is available for both a one-time purchase and a payment plan and it will display this within a single page.

A major issue with the WooCommerce Deposits plugin is that it does not support automatic recurring payments. For example, the first payment goes through as a deposit but the remaining payments are not automatically charged to the customer’s payment method on file.
The customer then has to manually go and make the payment. The WooCommerce Payment Plans for Subscriptions plugin, on the other hand, is automated, as the remaining payments in the customer’s plan are automatically charged to the customer’s payment method (such as a credit card or PayPal) using their chosen payment method.
Yes. Both automatic recurring payments and automatic re-billing on failed payments are supported with this extension. So, you never have to worry about losing revenue from future installments.
Yes, the WooCommerce Payment Plans plugin is compatible with LearnDash courses. But, when applying it to LearnDash courses, you need to apply it as as Simple product instead of as a Course.
