Stripe Subscription with Initial setup fee?.

iosman001 asked in General


I'm building a relatively simple subscription based app using Stripe, Devise, Pundit and a few other resources. My only real hangup at the moment is that the subscription requires an initial setup fee, and I'm really having a hard time with it.

A new user signs-up for Subscription-A; Subscription-A has a yearly interval price of $5. Upon signing up the new user gets charged a one-time fee of $10, then the following years gets charged only $5.

I'm currently in the research phase, but haven't found too much on this topic. I normally would show what I've attempted so far, but in this case I'm having a hard time even getting this started.



Looks like we've discussed this in the past here actually!

Seems that you simply add the setup fee to the initial invoice of the subscription and future payments will just be the normal plan price.
